    Okay, I took photos.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/37290466@N07/

    So there's the B+W enlarger that seems to take "big" negatives, a Beseler 8181 dichromo thing with power supply and extra knob thing (but the bellows look like they were taped and would need a retaping), and lots of accessories (different negative holders and a different lens and things I can't identify. Lots of color filter things.

    There's the drying cabinet with glass top, with a Beseler thing in it, a heating element, and a fan. There's 20 or so big film holder things, and the trays to develop them. There's a print cabinet , the red light, the stuff you'd need to do airbrushing (paints, two airbrushes, and what I think is a thing you airbrush on). There's a bunch of paper, but I think it has all been opened. I believe it is still "safe" though. There are some chemicals. The developer packet is unopened, the other stuff has been reclosed.

    I didn't photo the sink, but basically there's no drain there, so he made a contraption where the sink drains into a tub and like a toilet if the tub gets full it turns on a pump which pumps through a hose to a drain on the other side of the basement. I was afraid to turn that on.

    So let me know what you think?

    There are a number of things in there that may be useful to the right person, but I don't see any hidden gems in the photos--something like a fancy easel or a particularly good enlarging lens. While he seems to have put a lot of effort into his customized enlargers, and I'm sure he had a system that worked for him, most people buying darkroom equipment want things that aren't too customized, so that they'll work with standard parts and accessories that are easily available, and there's a lot of high-end darkroom gear out there for cheap these days. Unless you want to go through it all meticulously and part out what's potentially sellable here in the classifieds (which happen to be out of commission at the moment, but should be back up in the next couple of days) or on eBay, I think your best bet is to find someone local who is interested and give it away to someone willing to move it all out for you, or sell it for a nominal amount to someone who wants to pick it over and let you deal with the rest.

    Amarygma,I haven't read anywhere in the post where your located,name a city.No body wants to ship a Enlarger so it would only be a local interest. Also when you say big what size,4x5,5X7,8x10 ?.the carrier size would do.

    First post: White bear lake. I have a pickup truck and can deliver within reason if anyone has a little car (TC area).

    I dunno what a carrier is. Tell me and I'll gladly measure. I'm assuming it's something from the enlargers on page 2 of the photos? The B+W negative holder (is that the carrier?) is glass. The color one has several ... i can measure them, if that's the thing to measure!

    Consider putting the Marshall's Spot All and Photo-Retouch Colors on Ebay as well. They may bring in more than the neg carriers!
    And the 4x5 film holder (marked INP 70 in your DC044 photo) would also sell on Ebay.

    From your image DC010 it looks like a 5x4 enlarger. I wish I didn't live so far away (or even better, if you were closer!).
