I suppose the compensating metronome has limited interest. You need a cold light with a Zone VI photo sensor installed and an AC footswitch to turn the light on and off. Also you need someone who wants to print counting beeps as opposed to using a timer. And considering you would need to sell it as-is maybe your give away is closer to it's value in today's market for darkroom equipment.
I have a Zone VI cold light ( original, not v54 ), and I print by counting metronome clicks... but I think I'm set in my "let it warm up" ways now and probably don't need a compensating metronome. I've got a meter that I used to hook up to the photodiode sensor but the fact is the light is pretty stable after it overcomes initial warmup and I'm getting perfectly repeatable results. I'm patient so I don't mind a bit of wait for warmup. Probably I'll kick myself someday for not getting one when I had the chance!
this thread and the first one has been something else ...
people giving other people "stuff" ... " free stuff ! "
i saw this thread today in the classifieds,
and thought it would be great
if instead of posting in this thread for a while
if you good folks could post in the " apug-members-helping-victims-sandy" thread
I have 1 pack of some 25 old Kodak color papers (Ektacolor Supra II - 8 X 10 sheets). The pack has been opened although I don't know their condition. I would just ask for the cost delivery (somewhere around 13$). It's been given to me but I don't develop colors.
Durst CLS 35 enlarger. I have been using it for a light source for contact printing and have never enlarged with it but it should work fine. It does include the lens. I also have a spare head that is untested. The enlarger is located in San Francisco. Please PM me if interested. Pickup in person would be best but I would be willing to ship within the CONUS if you pay the shipping. I'm guessing about 20 lbs from 94116 if you want to get an idea of what shipping would cost. Box will be about 12"x12"x16".

Reason: Decided I would be willing to ship.
And the Durst is now well on it's way to Maryland. So up next is two B&W magazines. These weight about 3 lbs. so with a box let's say 4 lbs, which means they will ship USPS Media Mail for $4.00 within the US.
Update: Given Away
A kind soul gave this to me, I will not use it, if you can use the goods, take them and put em to good use. Terms, US only, you pay shipping USPS, PayPal, $10'ish depends on your zip. It is all packed up and boxed n ready to go - I will not split this up. I believe the lenses are all Nikon mount. All is untested and in user condition, the telecoverter looks to be in awful shape but the other items seem usable, but all are untested and consider it "broken for parts". Enjoy!
