    For some time I have been looking for a four-blade easel. As they seem to be pretty expensive I'd like to hear if anybody could advise me.

    Thanks

    I use a Saunders, and yes it wasn't cheap. You might be able to buy one second hand. I don't think building one would be very practical unless you are a VERY handy guy.

    expensive but it depends which size you want. An 11x14 is pretty reasonable and seems plenty available on ebay. 16x20 amd 20x24 are rarer and more expensive.

    I use the 16X20 Saunders. Best money I ever spent.

    Donald,
    Did you buy new? I know where there are a couple one is used and the other is New. It may be a Beslar. The one with the big knobs.

    Lee,
    No, I bought mine from the same seller (ebay) that had the enlarger that bought as well. It might as well have been new since the lady attempted to do a rental darkroom in a small town and ultimately found that the population wasn't sufficient. I think that I saved something on the order of half of new. What are they asking for the ones that you know about?

    New 16x20 from B&H for a little over $100. Made in outer Slobovia or something like that - i am very satisfied.
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    If I remember, it was a consignment and about $175. The new one was about $225. It has been a while but at that place I would bet they have not sold yet.
