    I concur, keep the 45 for sure, then probably the 23c which can interchange the lens easily with the 45.

    BTW, who put her in charge anyway, or did she just assume the role? Keep them all unless there's insufficient space in the new digs. And yes, I'm married, but I learned a long time ago to dig my heels in when these situations arise. Our sofa isn't long to sleep on and we have no dog house - they sleep inside.

    So far the only one I have had the pleasure of using was the b600 and that was mainly cause it was nice light and easy to carry and I had the stuff that went to it sitting right next to me

    Its easy to acquire equipment you don't need. Besides the enlargers you have all that lighting equipment. If all you shoot is small format stick with the B600 and sell the rest. When you can and if your active in a DR move to a Leitz 1c. If your need is medium format keep the best MF enlarger which has all the required pieces.

    If the motor on the Beseler 45 is straining, then the chassis may need realigning. It isn't hard, unless the support rods are corroded into the sockets.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    I'd dump em all and get one really good enlarger. Prices are cheap enough at the moment. If I can find space, I can take for free an enlarger
    that originally cost $75,000.

    A new Beseler 45 is probably $3,000+. If you are "dumping" that what would you get for free that is better? Where does one go to get free enlargers that are better than a Beseler 45? I had to pay for my Beseler 45. Even my Beseler 23C III wasn't free.
