    Well, I went ahead and bought it. This morning it had just been listed and viewed 12 times and tonight it had been viewed over 50 times. I didn't want someone to beat me to it. The machine lives at an arial photography studio, so I would imagine they've gone digital and need to off load it. I just can't believe a massive enlarger like that is 220-30 US dollars. Thanks digital!

    It's a process camera isn't it? Now you need to find a longer lens for 8x10.

    Anybody wanting something like this watch Ebay. High shipping costs and limited market mean they go for very little money.

    Congrats! I looked over at the auction and saw that you bought it. That's great. If you've got room for such a thing (I don't in my Manhattan apartment), it's a great deal.

    Well good news, it also comes with a 360lens! here is the recent info on my new enlarger from the owner

    Yes it is in great working order.
    Bulbs are pulse xenon tubes (plus one spare set) the bulbs have
    never needed replacing in all the time ive worked here 8 years, it is a
    very good system. The base board is a vacuum board and works well.
    It is a totally trouble free unit.
    Base board size is 110cm x 110cm and are height adjustable.
    256 comes with a 150mm and a 360mm Rodenstock APO ronar
    Has glass plate neg carrier which just slide out.
    Light source does produce consistent light
    The control box photo had a contact printer sitting on top of it which
    isn't part of this. The enlarger has been used commercially and produces reliable results.

    I am really nervous about this beast. The mover is picking it up Friday. It's in 4 pieces and requires a fork lift. He says the main column is the heavy piece which he estimates is a ton. I hope my concrete garage floor can handle the weight of this thing!? Should I be worried? Any structural engineers in here? 500NZ to buy it, 850NZ to have it delivered, probably another 150-200 to have the center column craned into place. This is starting to add up, and if it's a failure I'll be very let down. They say nothing in life worth having is easy, so fingers crossed!

    your garage floor should be able to take it. Most garages here in the states easily handle 1.5 ton pickups without any problems. Plus the safely factor for any structure is supposed to be 1.5 times the maximum allowable stress, so you should be ok...

    Sean, if you disappear down the hole it makes, do you pop up in the northern hemisphere ?!
