    I have a one-ton Dodge diesel truck that could haul it. What I don't have is a darkroom large enough to use it.

    That's a LARGE enLARGER!

    It is important to keep the wife impressed. But there come times in life when impressing the wife should be sacrificed for impressing the Joneses - and THIS would be one of those times!

    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    I can't, no really I can't. Well it's not too far from me so maybe I can just go and have a look.

    No I can't.........

    For what it will likely sell for, it's worth the cost of hiring a truck, if you've got the space for it.

    Truck won't help - but perhaps a boat?

    Hmmm...

    It's the weight that's the problem. According to Durst it weighs around 1400 lbs.

    But then that's the excuse to rent a small workshop to put the enlarger in. Unfortunately it would probably have to double as living space once the beloved's size 5 lands on my backside.

    That's what flowers are for!
    Nothing says, "I love you honey" as much as a small bouquet and a promise to spend even more time in your darkroom...

    Can I rent time on it when you get it all set up?

    I suspect the seller has a wife too.... he only bought it himself a few months ago... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=7554067118 .

    The people he bought it from, UKsurplus (Liquidity Services Ltd.) have some interesting items if you look in their present and past sales: Nice outside darkroom: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=4592366411


    Cheers, Bob.

    The military shelter unit would fit on a truck frame and make a great portable darkroom bomb shelter. You wouldn't have to worry about bad weather, just add oxygen and a nice cot with some food. Imagine pulling into some places with that!
