    WTB: Beseler 45V-XL chassis in SF Bay Area

    I'm looking for a 45V-XL chassis in the Bay Area that someone wants to part with. I've got the 810 conversion head on a 45MXT but for some reason the head hits the top bar and so it can't travel all the way up. It's pretty flimsy compared to my 4x5 Durst so I thought I'd see if I could wall mount the 45V-XL and solve my problem that way.

    Hi, I believe for the MXT there is a spacer kit. Perhaps you can just get some longer bolts and washers. If you need the manual let me know.

    You are right on spacers but I've decided to upgrade to V-XL anyway and just found one with a wall mount.

    I'm curious...what kind of price did you find, and what (if any) accessories are included?

    I ended up buying a chassis with the 8x10 mounting conversion and wall mounting brackets in NYC and shipping it across country - $800 plus $350 shipping. There is a X-VL on CraigsList in Berkeley right now but I wanted the wall mount and the the conversion for my 8x10 Aristo Cold head. This setup is probably the lightest and smallest option for 8x10 enlarging and more robust than the Beseler 45MXT which I am replacing.
