    See that's the thing with these enlargers and studio cameras that are too large to move. If you live in Arkansas, you'll wait forever to find one, but when you do, you'll get it for $127. If you live in New York, they show up occasionally, but there are also others within driving-up-the-price distance.

    There is one for sale on LF Forum http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=31548
    The seller hasn't responded to two requests for his location. He also mentions that he will ship after Christmas. That might mean he is away and will not respond until after Christmas.

    http://pgsys.com (photographic systems ) in new mexico
    (alberquerque), and run by stephan cooper.
    he has lots of "stuff" and i remember from time to time
    he had big enlargers, 5x7 and 8x10 ..
    i can't speak for how he rates the things he sells,
    or what his shipping or return policies may be ...

    I bought my 8x10 Elwood from Midwest Photo. The shipping cost more than the enlarger!
    FWIW, I think the Beseler 45 with the optional 8x10 back makes for a nifty machine---size-wise.

    If someone picks this up, please let me know, I'll tag along and do some heavy lifting for you.

    Maybe three years ago I posted here and the LF Forum that I was looking for an 8x10 enlarger. I eventually found one. Recently someone in the Cleveland, OH area sent me a PM asking if I had found an enlarger. He was going to sell an Elwood 8x10 with 4x5 and 5x7 carriers. I know nothing about the enlarger, price, condition or the person. I thanked him and told him that I had gotten one. If someone is interested and the geography is reasonable, send me a PM and I will attempt to connect you.

    I just got an 8X10 Chromega F with Dichroic II head from a local lab. The column is about 100" tall and cost me $450 to have it moved to my workshop. The rest of the parts I was able to move myself. Unfortunately, some one "took" the table top, so I will have to make a new one (plywood?). It was a table top that had a built in vacuum base. Is a vacuum base necessary? The parts I have are somewhat of a mystery since I do not have a picture of the finished product. It has a 220v motor for raising the enlarger head and controls that I assume would have fitted under the table top. I shall be using it mainly for B/W 4X10 from 2 Fotoman 4X10 cameras (with 121 SA and 90 5.6 SA). The lens that came with it is an APO Rodagon 240 5.6. Is this an old lens? Rodenstock does not list it any more in there catalog.

Maybe AA had it right, just cobble one together from an old camera. This is the worst year I have ever had?

    Sounds familiar. I was in your same situation and was whining about it on the Large Format forum just about a year ago. It looked like all the 8x10 enlargers were on the coasts, and none in the Midwest. The thread had 10 pages and 7,000 views. A number of leads on enlargers were posted. I followed up on one and it turns out it was located in a shop I drive by on the way to work. I was looking for an Omega, but 'beggars can't be choosers' so now I'm a Durst fan.

    BTW the same shop had an old NuArc process camera that could be a suitable conversion project. There is the link to that shop http://www.largeformatphotography.in...ad.php?t=32367

    Here are some other leads on 8x10 enlargers that may be of interest:
