A 'Metorette" film & print processor that goes up to 20x24 prints, a Durst continuous color processor (8x10), a Durst Autofocus 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 enlarger (for $100), and some analyzers. If you're interested, pm me and I'll give you his number.

    Congratulations on the big win Dorothy. Send Savannah the money and she will hold it for you here at the party. I hope someone is interested in your generous equipment offer. Are there any other goodies there? Thank you.

    Congrats! It's well deserved.

    Very nice Dorothy! Hope you can make it to the gathering.

    Any way your friend could give you a complete list with model #'s etc to post here?

    As for enlargers, there are a couple near me, including what I think is an Elwood 5x7 (B&J Solar) that I should rescue from a likely trip to the dumpster, but I don't have the room even to store in in hopes of a future home.

    Dorothy,

    I have sent an email to the head of the Photography Dept. at University of Akron to see if they are interested. They have a color Lab and processors. I don't know if this fits their needs but I'll let you know what I hear. Thank you. Jeff & Eva donated the Omega enlarger last month. Hopefully the power supply will join it later this month.

    thanks everyone. I had no idea how much one print could take out of me emotionally and spiritually. Of the thousands of negatives I have, it's probably one of my favorites. Do you guys ever experience that? Where you get really attached to an image?

    As for goodies, John, another friend of mine has a 4x5 Wisner Technical Field Camera, just like mine. I think he's ready to come down on the price. Originally he wanted almost 2 grande, but when I told him ebay only wanted $1000, he might be willing to take that. It's a really nice camera.

    Lee, I tried getting model numbers but didn't get very far.

    Oh, and the guy with the Wisner still has an 8x10 Ellwood enlarger.

    Dorothy,
    I got an email back from Penny. She thanks us for thinking of her and U Akron but she doesn't think they can use the equipment. She suggests your friend list on Graig's list or eBay. Thank you.

    Considering how much space we devote to ice cream in these NE OH gathering threads I thought I should mention there was an interesting article by Vera Kuzyk in NY Times, Sunday, June 28, 2009 titled, “Moving from Wall Street to an ice cream business, and not looking back.” I imagine you can look it up on line. I will send the text to Jeff & Eva. Two former J.P Morgan employees bought two Manhattan stores a year ago and have been in ice cream heaven ever since. “Before we could complete the purchase, I had to attend Haagen-Daze University in Minnesota. And then my life changed.” It has been working so well they intend to buy additional stores. I wonder if they have considered this location.
