    How would you like to pay for the 4x5 enlarger you'll be buying from me?

    Nothing personal, but why would I want a wife when I am a free agent?

    I get home at night and

    1. I know when to take out the trash.
    2. I am no longer stupid.
    3. I am always right.
    4. Life is wonderful.

    As long as I listen to my wife and do what she says all 4 points are true for me too.

    When I listen especially well she tells me to go get the checkbook and buys me a 4x5.

    On a more serious note I'm not quite ready for the enlarger just yet, but what can I expect to pay if I'm patient?

    Check Craigslist often. At times you can find an old Omega D for free or under $50.

    Or you can do what those of us who do not have the space for a 4x5 enlarger do and contact print them. I print my 35mm as 4x6", I print my MF as 5x5", and I contact print my 4x5". I have had 3 4x5 enlargers offered to me in the past year, but I have no space for one in the small bathroom I use as a darkroom.

    Contacts are great and I'll probably start there.

    My daughter though will be going off to college this fall so space will be growing.

    You are already at a cross roads. Buy the enlarger (out here in the bay area a MX45 goes for around 125 bucks) or do contact prints. Trade that puppy in on a 5x7 camera, a 191mm Commercial Ektar and some bigger developing trays.

    Nah, have a good time, learn if you like LF or not, contact print (and try Cyanotypes) and be prepared to be amazed.
