    Anyone have one these they might part with. My 30 year old unit is malfunctioning.

    It is an early electronic digital readout enlarger/processing timer offered by Spiratone. I like how easy it is to use (when working properly).

    There are a couple up on that ridiculously big online auction site right now. One for $20 opening bid on a normal auction, and one that is simply for sale for $40.
