    That starting price is £200 + another £160 VAT more than I paid for mine

    No wonder there's no bidders, however they are becoming far less common on Ebay as are the 504's. Five years ago as labs were closing in droves there would be maybe a dozen or more 504's and one or two 5108's listed at any given time.

    This one's a better buy

    VAT is 20%?!?! I keep hearing that we Canadians have high taxes, but that is a bit much... even for a quasi-socialist like myself.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    The original enlarger has 4 Rodenstock lenses which maybe have not been taken into consideration.

    Really socialist countries would have more direct taxes (income tax) and less indirect taxes (such as VAT and excise taxes)*.
    VAT is proportional, income tax is progressive: High VAT rates are good for the "rich", and bad for the "poor", so they are not very socialist.

    On the other hand, it's much more difficult to evade indirect taxes than direct taxes, which is why they exist after all. I don't know about the UK, but in Italy half of the fiscal revenues come from indirect taxes.

    *given a certain amount of fiscal pressure.

    There are two of these on the US Ebay for several thousand dollars here and here, so a low price like that is not too bad. But they can be better, I bought mine a year ago for $400. That included the gas to go pick it up several hundred miles away. Unfortunately, it did not include the negative carrier, which I am still looking for.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.
