    I was just posting examples, I have used both Gralab and Time-O-light for the last 20 years with not a problem, but if you look there are quite a few on Ebay and for the price range you in, you should have no problems at all..

    Thank you all for the help. I bid on a GraLab 450 that is up in a day and I can use a kitchen timer for processing so hopefully one of these days I will have a functioning darkroom.

    Stephen,

    If you will pay for the postage I will ship you a used Gralab 450 for free.

    If you can find a good Kearsarge timer, I love them for enlarging work. A bit more expensive. Mine was about $295 new. I haven't seen too many of them for sale recently.

    Time-o-light and gra-lab, Amen! Been using mine for the last 2 decades. Go with reliability.

    I have the Stopclock timer from RH Designs and it is expensive as hell, but a great timer.

    Looks like http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WD1V would be a good timer. Slightly better than the one I use, and it's got hands-free operation throughout dodges and burns as well as audible queues. (:

    I got my Time-o-lite M-59 for $5 on ebay. Just needed a little tinkering to rezero it and it was good to go. Can't complain about that price, especially since a shop wanted to sell me a used one for $85 earlier in the day before I went to eBay.

    Last year when I was ebaying for my darkroom I experienced the same thing. I knew I wanted a digital timer for the enlarger and I wanted to spend around the same amount. So close so many times to watch it balloon over. But eventually I got mine. Just have patience. I ended up with a Kearsarge 201. It's great!
