    Hey Jeff,
    Great to hear from you. Hope you and the misses are well.

    I wonder if this Omega is too big for the room. Certainly would love to do 4x5. Presently when I do print I go down to the local arts center to rent the darkroom. They did not get their levy passed again this go arround so the darkroom is closed. So I am looking at trying to go internal for at least the 6x6 and down.

    Will break out the tape measure and take somc cell phone pics of the room and get an idea what would fit. Mean time, measure the foot print on your Omega including how tall it is, I just bet it may be too big. But interested !!!

    Hey Lee,

    If I were you I would mount the enlarger onto a cart that you can wheel in and out of the bathroom. That would work well, and you could very easily do this with a 4x5 enlarger. The base of the unit isn't more than 6" across. I wouldn't try this with a Beseler as they are quite a bit larger at the base.

    Honestly, other than the column being taller, the Omega 4x5 isn't really that much larger than their medium format enlargers. And obviously a lot more capable.

    Jeff, The cart idea is very cool.
    Just offered a guy here in Dayton on Craigs list pennies on the dollar for a vivitar enlarger that will do both 35 and 6x6. Not ideal but very cheap and small. I bet I get laughed at, I offered less than half of what he wanted.

    Hope it works out! Make sure it has all the accessories you want - might be hard to find them second hand.

    Sounds good to me.
    Watch your size as you working with a small room. Try this 25 years ago and found the cart I use was to big to fit in the bathroom.

    I bet yours is the only offer he gets. But +1 on the point of making sure it has all the accessories you need.

    If you wait til spring thats when lots of this stuff gets unloaded. Spring cleaning and all. No one bothers with moving things in the winter.

    I have a little omega dichroic enlarger I need to give away. Comes with the power supply, 50mm lens (I might have an 80mm too), an extra bulb, 35mm and 6x6 carriers. It's quite small and not too heavy, shouldn't be hard to ship. Yours for shipping costs. I'll take some pictures of it tonight.

    Hey Daleeman, A friend moved out of his big house to a small apartment and switched to (gag) digital. I've been looking for a new owner for all the stuff he gave me, here goes !!
    An Omega Super Chromega C dichroic enlarger w/ voltage stabilized power source A gralab 500
    timer with foot switch and a Unicolor-Mornick Model 1 analyzer. Also i have a rodenstock omegar 50mm f4.5, a rod. rodagon 80mm f5.6, and a Vivitar 50mm f3.5 enl. lens. I also have a couple of
    extra enlarger lights. What i don't have is a 6x6 neg. carrier and only i lensboard
    All you have to do is drive to my house in Eastlake,Ohio(east of Cleveland) when the snow is gone
    and pick it up no charge, and by the way, everything works. All it will cost is gas and some time.
    Let me know if you want the equipment, it's not going anywhere! My cell is 4404781787.
    johnpohl19 I have4x5 and 5x7 enlargers so i'm all set for what i'm doing.
