Does this seem reasonable for fotar 10X10 enlarger?
A fellow I've done business with for a number of years and from whom I recently bought a little darkroom gear has the following for sale at $750:
10x10 FOTAR ENLARGER
2 8x10 glass negative carriers
2 lens boards for shorter lenses 39mm mount
adapter for 4x5 Omega negative carriers
CHROMEGA F COLOR HEAD
KEARSARGE 703A TIMER
240mm 5.6 EL-NIKKOR LENS
Does that seem reasonable? I don't have room for it without a major modiication to my darkroom. It is in Houston. I'd be happy to get anyone in touch with him, if someone was interested. I've seen it and it is nice condition. Bill Barber
I'ld buy it! Seems like a great deal to me.
If I was in your position I would modify my darkroom. Buy the thing yourself.

Oh sorry, I forgot you don't shoot Large Format
Large format Pat.
I'm actually picking one of these up this weekend. I don't have the headroom for the 10' column either, put I've found posts that say you can cut the column, and just have to trim some cables to get it to work. I'll probably trim mine down to around 7'.
I was initially purchasing a 10x10 HK mural enlarger for $200 from a lab in NYC that was trying to clean out some room. I had agreed to purchase it, but the guy ended up not being able to locate the head for it, so he offered me the Fotar instead for the same price.
Buy it. Otherwise, later, when you decide you want one, the nearest one will be 500 miles away

I really don't need it, however that really hasn't kept me from buying something in the past. I have three enlargers stuffed in my darkroom now and have just bought a press and associated plate burner, etc for doing polymer gravure printing. I really don't need to spend the money. I do some 4X5 and 617 work now and my 5X7 enlarger will handle that.
I had hoped to help generate some interest in someone else buying this beautiful piece of equipment and see it get back in operation. It is sad seeing it sit idle. Bill Barber
