    There must be a Melburnian out there, in need of a beaut Durst 1200 enlarger...

    It's a blessing/curse working at a university, as I've accidentally acquired 'another' Durst 1200 enlarger, with condenser head, a 150mm lens in Durst mount, and various film holders for 35mm and 6x6/6x7. This enlarger will also cope with 5x4" (and the lens with it is of course for that format).
    It weighs around 30-40kg, and is quite tall (may not fit in a sedan, probably fit lying down in a hatchback with the seats folded or a station wagon).

    Anyways - I can't begin to imagine my fate if I brought a second one home, so I will give it to a good home, in return for a traditional slab of beer, if only to save a perfectly working enlarger, one of the BEST ever made, from the skip. Pick up from CBD

    I'm starting to feel a bit like the Melbourne APUG 5x4" enlarger pimp , but there you go...

    Man o Man. If I bring this home... But I just got to. I put my hand up for it Marc, but if anyone else jumps in before the end of the day they can have it. This way I can go out and buy some nice wine and a prepare a nice meal before I get hit with the question - "So what have you bought now" and "Where are you going to put it"

    If it had been this time last year I'd have jumped at it. But I now have a perfectly good Durst 605 with colour head languishing in a wardrobe because I don't have a darkroom :-(

    Go for it, Andy. At least you have a darkroom......and a wife who has some understanding of its value.

    Cheers, P.

    A slab of beer for Marc, and flowers with a slap up meal for my wife :-)

    Peter, I did end up buying the mamiya kit I was looking at. I was asked not to buy anything until the new year. So at 0022 hours on 1/1/12 I bought it. There was a cold reception initially, but I have been asked for pictures of the kit and have been asked when the gear is going to arrive. I think Tanya wants to use it too.

    Back to the Durst. I've got a wagon, just will need to take out the kiddie seats and fold down the back seats.
    Cheers - Andy C

    If I had anywhere to put it. Curse the new age rental apartments and they're only getting smaller it seems. *sighs*

    Nice to know however that these things do come up from time to time.

    Hey Andy, if your wife gets too upset I'll take it off your hands. It would be my second L1200 so I don't want to appear greedy and try and barge my way to the heard of the queue. The only reason I want a second one is that I use an Ilford MG head and you have to change the lamp position when you swap from 35/120 to 4x5. They are awesome enlargers.

    Speaking from recent experience, once you get those children's seats out of the way, you should be able to squeeze that 1200 into your car.

    I'm proud of you Andy - on both acquisitions. I am sure you'll all be happy together.

    Cheers, Peter.
