    offer $250.00 and walk him up to $325.00. It might not hurt to view it first to see what shape it is in.
    Thank you.

    Make an offer usually means the seller wants to much. Your experience may be different. Except the the Durst and the print washer, $50 to $75.

    The Durst is a great enlarger but now a days, almost nothing brings in much. The print washer will get the most in relation to original cost and could easily go for more than $100. However, I was given one for free by a complete stranger on APUG.

    So, $200 or $300 would be a good price, but, my bet the seller is thinking of $1000+.

    Good Luck.

    An 11x14 Zone VI washer just sold on ebay for $108 + shipping, a year ago they were going for 200+. I agree with Fotch that the seller probably has his sights set much too high, and that 2 - 3 hundred is probably a realistic price given the market.
    Sad but true, offer 200, and see where it goes. The worst that can happen is that he'll say "no".

    I have to agree with others. "Make Offer" usually means that the seller has an overly optimistic number in mind.

    Keep in mind that many big enlargers are changing hands in the "come and get it before I take it to the dump" price range....With this in mind, $200~400 would seem quite fair depending upon condition and whether key accessories are present.

    I would at least email an offer, or, if convenient, go in person. Start lower than the max you set for yourself. It will either be a Go or No Go. Discipline yourself to not get caught up in the moment and pay more than you intend, as is common with auctions.

    FWIW, I just won a 90mm RB67 C lens for $70.00 plus shipping using an Ebay offer - 22% less than the Buy it Now price.

    And it is in Canada .
