    Always sad to hear these things; my college also "tossed" several 5x4 enlargers, rather than sell them. Even offered to buy them, but they refused and they were taken to the tip.

    Never understand why educational/government institutes do this - surely some cash is better than none?

    Thankfully their last clear-out went to auction, but anything that didn't sell - you guessed it, got dumped. Crazy - I would have happily taken the 10 6x7 enlargers off their hands, but they refused to sell to me; seems some rules aren't made to be flexible, rather idiocy reigns.

    I would have loved to get a M605 to replace my M600.
    Oh well, that would be a 6 hour drive to get up to Humbolt County. a bit too far to drive.

    Although with proper disposal paperwork university (and company) equipment can be sold to others. But the beurocracy is what it is.

    I'm looking forward to buy a 8x10 enlarger (the smallest possible) but they are not very common here in New Zealand

    A Durst L1200, Leica V35, Leica 1C with Ilford MG head and a Beseler 23C, guess that makes four. Like to have a Leitz 11C, but too expensive, and nearly won an Agfa like Sean has but missed out, I believe that they are really good.

    I just grabbed a Leitz Valoy ii, I plan to use for 35m work.
    Have a couple MXT's one for parts the other tuned like a fine Violin.
    An Elwood I had to have that I have not used or set up...
    I used my 8x10 Anthony studio camera as an 8x10 enlarger with a small softbox and White-Lightning strobe as "pulsed" light source and it worked!
    I have a couple old cheapo enlargers from the 1950's that are cute but mostly worthless sitting around that people "gave" me.

    I assume you have an 8x10 camera? Just get a cheap monorail and turn it into an enlarger. I did it "for a day" with my old 8x10 Anthony. I wanted to make a 16x20 from an 8x10 negative. I used gaffers' tape to suspend the negative in the film gate (removed ground glass stage). The old 14" Wollensak lens was stopped down to f11 for some sharpness. For the light source I powered back a monolight attached a small softbox, and pulsed the strobe for the exposure (used model light to focus). It worked nice and made dodge/burn easy. I remember I did something like 20 pulses overall, 3 or 4 for the edges, an extra for the bottom.. IF you keep your dodger close to the lens you don't get a sharp shadow... anyway it was a bridal print that turned out nice.

    Four at present; a Durst SM-183 I bought 20 years ago with both Condenser and a CLS301 head and all the goodies for it; two LPL's a 4500II and a 4550 XLG and a Valloy II with the original Leitz lens that I've had as long as the Durst. Have almost every Rodagon lens made from 50 to 240 MM for them, plus a few Apo's and a couple of Componon-S & G-Claron. I hear there may be a 4x5 Durst that needs a good home, so the number could grow. Luis
