    That's new, not used.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Still.... new or not. $1700 for chasis only? And then you still have to pay for a head?

    What makes these things so special? Because without a head, all it is is a piece of bent aluminum tubing....

    If you adjust for inflation, that is what all those used Beseler 4x5 enlarger chassis' you see on eBay etc. sold for when they were new.

    They are required to serve as a strong, stable and consistently aligned support for precision optical equipment, after all.

    Eh, you can find it used. I wouldn't do it new unless you had to.

    I could make one for much less than that.

    (this was not an offer to manufacture!).
