    Yes excellent but don't pay too much, have alook at Second Hand Darkroom Supplies website, then realize the sell for 2 - 3 times the usual going rate for a second hand enlarger.

    Also look for Durst M600 series, preferably with a colour head, which is great for Variable Contrast papers.

    Says it has a mask for 6x6. Are you shooting 6x6, or wider, such as 6x7?
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    My preference is a Durst M-601 I used to have one years ago, I think its the perfect machine for your use. The neg carrier has a built in mask for any size up to 6x6cm. It is also one of the best built and sturdy machines around.

    No older than an M601, I still have one, my first had extremely heavy professional use and was retired for a 2nd re-build. M670's etc are newer & slightly better.

    When you say watch my bid does not go to high, what sort of price are you guys thinking? I will also need to get the lens he is selling.

    I have heard Durst are very good, so I think I will keep my eyes open for one.

    You should be able to get a complete enlarger with a lens possibly two (50mm & 80mm) for £100-£120, £150 max.
