    I also wonder if it was their bright idea to not put the brand name on the listing.

    That is correct. Pretty amazing isn't it? Make me want to open one. I got a Beseler 4x5 on a similar deal from one of these places about 6 months ago. Great job!

    Amazing. I think a lot of enlarger bargains get missed because of shipping. People can be irrational that way, looking at the shipping as a bad deal instead of figuring out the total investment compared to buying new. I paid more to ship my Solar 57 than I paid for the enlarger (with lenses, carriers, spares, trays, etc.).

    I waited a couple of years for a D2V that was close enough to pick up. Packing and shipping can kill an otherwise good deal on heavy, bulky items.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I spoke to the seller this morning and she said they get 35% on items up to $250 and then 30% on items over $250.

    Keep in mind that after paypal and ebay fees, they collect about 20%.

    I feel bad for the owner of the enlarger. He only got paid $115 for this item!!!

    Don't bother to buy a lottery ticket, you used up all your luck with that one.

    I too feel bad for the former owner. If the item was competently listed on eBay, it would have at least fetched $400...probably more.

    It is the fault of iSoldIt for not listing the brand in the title.

    I believe the standard Omega 4x5 carriers are interchangeable with the LPL.
    If you ever locate the glass carrier with the masking blade set-up that is a real plus.

    That is a great deal - I have one of those and it is a real tank - rock solid. Mine is mounted on the wall. That long skinny thingy (focus extension) that is included in your deal is sweet when you are making BIG prints and your arm isn't long enough to reach the enlarger head and see the image in a grain focuser.

    Have fun
