    A couple of pictures from my darkroom.

    The dry side has two enlargers, one Focomat Ic and a Meopta Opemus 6 with Meograde head. The Meopta is my workhorse; a great enlarger for relatively little money. It does up to 40x50cm on the baseboard. Enlarging lenses are a 50mm EL-Nikkor for 35mm and a 80mm Schneider Componon for 6x6.

    The wet side isn't that wet really. I don't have running water in the darkroom, and frankly never missed it as the bathroom is just opposite and I do all the washing there. The bench is custom made to fit the room and my requirements. It has four drawers on rails to dry prints. I really should have added a few more. The lower compartments contain all the paper, trays etc.

    The darkroom is just one smallish room in my house. It even has a door to a small balcony which I use for ventilation.

    I'm moving soon to a new house. I will post some pictures of the new (larger & running water, yay!) darkroom when it's setup.

    I will have updated pictures of my darkroom soon. It's gone through a ton of changes since my last rendition. Currently i am cleaning up my sink install, making room for some new stuff i'm getting, and covering some bare walls(framework with fiberglass insulation in it) with wood. I also plan to go to the container store later today and buy some cool stuff from there to further make my darkroom easily used.

    I have never had the opportunity to work in the darkroom, but would like to set one up since I've started shooting 6x7 again. I want to be able to print up to 24"x30" and have found a Beseler 23c with several accessories (albeit no 6x7 neg carrier) for $120.00. If it's all in good condition, does that sound like a decent buy?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    jpreston, what series is your 23C? One of my enlargers is an old series II. I'm going through a total darkroom make over, and the project has stalled a little. I'm thinking of making a wooden sink and then fiber-glassing it, any body have an opinion?

    I would say 120 is fair if it's a 23cIII in mint condition with tons of accessories. I bought my 23cII, also in mint condition, with a saunders easel, el-nikkor 50mm f/2.8 lens, timer, safelight, etc. for $100. That said though, i have 5 enlargers, and that's the only one i paid for. It is in the best condition though. Keep your eyes open, i've been offered many 23cII's for free (i acctually prefer the 23cII over the 23cIII)

    If you can't find a nice darkroom sink off cl or similar, then that is supposedly a good alternative. I've seen many how-to's online, it supposedly works pretty well. The nice part is that you get it to the dimensions you want, and you can really go crazy with customizing it.

    Thanks Austin, I've seen sinks that I could get for under $300 including shipping, but I have an odd shaped room, and some drain pipes to go around. I'll poke around and find some how to's. I paid $21 for my 23c II and gas to go get it, Best deal I ever made!

    It's much more humid in Atlanta than where you live.

    The one I found is just a 23c. Probably very old. I haven't bought it, just wondering if it was a good buy. Sounds like I'll keep looking.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
