    So you probably got an $898.50 head with it as well.
    All for 30 bucks!!

    You done good!
    No one in their right mind is paying $1816.50 just for the chassis unless they are buying for a school or the gub'ment. That's the tough part about buying enlargers. Every once in awhile some hardass tries to tell you their used enlarger is "worth" $500. I just tell them good luck finding someone to pay that much.

    Enlarger prices are so low it actually makes more sense to just buy entire enlargers if you need a negative carrier. When I needed a particular size negative carrier instead of buying one used for $50 I just bought an entire late model enlarger with a bunch of accessories for less than $40.

    You have no clue.
    Where ever you are, there you be.

    It's true. I was just trying to make donkee feel even a little bit better than he already does.

    Pics coming. Picked up a rescue dog Friday, the girlfriend had her birthday Monday, the oldest son is graduating so I get to work on the open house (the yard needs some TLC!). Too much going on right now. I really want to get moving on setting that puppy up but you know how it goes......

    Ok, finally I set it up on a table in the basement and grabbed a couple quick shots with the little PnS. See it did happen!

    The carriers are 35mm, 4x4 (127), 6x7, 4x5.

    The paper safe has a bunch of wrapped paper but it is cracked pretty badly. Hopefully at least some of the paper is usable. I'll get to find out in a couple months when I can actually print.

    Now, to start looking for a 4x5 camera.
