    Hey, offer to make a half dozen 8x10's for him after you get set up as part of the deal. He may not care however, showing how much you want it might win him over.

    If you buy a popular Beseler or Omega enlarger, it will be easier to find accessories such as negative carriers and lensboards for it.

    You will be happy with a Beseler or Omega enlarger. I have an Omega and I am really pleased with it.

    You can't beat free... If it's not what you want/need, there was a Beseler posted at a decent price today:

    Two things to remember. The worlds best enlarger will make poor prints if it is not aligned and you use an inferior lens. You will probably want to eventually use glass carriers as well.
