    I have two: an Omega D2 that I absolutely love, and a Beseler 45MCRX that I have yet to use because I don't have lensboards or negative carriers for it.

    Two:
    - A Beseler 67C with a dichroic head as an option - I bought this in condenser form new in the 1970s and used it happily until about three years ago (and intend to keep it with hopes of room for a two enlarger darkroom); and
    - An Omega D6 with an Ilford 400 Multigrade head, which I bought used with a slew of accessories

    At one stage I had 6!

    My first an LPL 66II, followed up by the addition of a Meopta Opemus II which was given to me by a friend. I then picked up another Opemus II and a gazillion others bits and pieces for $100.

    Next up, I got into colour printing for a while, and splashed out $695 for an LPL 6700 which became my workhorse as I was able to modify to also allow me to print from my beloved Kodak Junior 6x9.

    Landed my next LPL 7700 for $10 - including 2 lenses, 4 carriers, Novex timer, an 11x14 easel and a quick-mask 8x10 Saunders easel.

    My latest acquisition is an LPL7452 head for $25/case of beer, which will actually end up costing about $600 once I get the column and counterweight delivered from Japan.

    Parted out most of these now - covered the outlay of the original LPL66 and 6700 easily enough, so once I've got the 4x5 up and running, I'll be seriously contemplating selling the 6700.

    For now, operational-wise I guess I've got 1.5 enlargers on the go.

    One LPL 6700.
    One floor mount Old model De Veere 504 5x4" enlarger with 40x50" baseboard.
    Two De Veere 504 bench mounts with 20x30 baseboard.
    All have colour analysers on them.
    I love people going digital! $250 got me the lot with another $150 for a set of lenses to suit 35, 6x6 and 4x5...all Rodagons.

    I have two. An LPL 6700 which I have had for a few years and an old DeVere 54 (not 504) which I have converted to an LED light source.

    I kept the 6700 to use for 35mm but the big DeVere does this small format just as well so I only use one enlarger now.

    I've got five.

    Meoptas: Optimus and Axomat (one set up for 6 X 6, the other 35mm)

    A DeVere 108 for large format

    a Victorian wood horizontal affair for small glass plates.

    an anonymous 1950s 6 X 9 upright thing.

    - Neither of these last two are used, much. Occasionally useful if someone else wants me to print something from a format bigger than 6 X 6 but smaller than half plate.

    Right now, I have two set up- a Beseler 4x5, and an Omega 5x7. Sitting outside the darkroom door, are a Durst M-800 (which needs to find a new home), and an LPL/Saunders 4550XLG. I was given the LPL, in September, but haven't had a chance to set it up. It's on the "to-do" list, as it also came with the Heiland Splitgrade system, which I'm eager to try. If I like the LPL combo, the Beseler will probably need a new home, too....
