    "old Shaky," huh? Doesn't inspire a lot of confidence.

    You should look for a 4x5 Beseler or Omega. They're fairly cheap now, so there's no reason to settle for a lower-level enlarger. You'll also want to invest in a good lens. And it is an investment.

    I was about 12 and loved that enlarger at the time. Purchased it myself from money from my paper route.

    Much later, as an adult, I purchased a Beseler 23C XLII (still have) and notice a huge difference.

    I now think of that first enlarger as Old Shaky, he did the best he could and so did I.
