    Wow! That is a great find! Thrift stores are definitely another way to find great deals.

    I also get the additional entertainment of comparing what I paid to what B & H and others want for new or even used versions of the equipment - don't you love a bargain .

    Good score Matt. I've been watching Vancouvers Craigslist carefully but I didn't need ANOTHER enlarger.

    I found a Pentax autofocus zoom 38-120 at a yard sale for $4. Inside the box was the original bill of sale for $269.95. I don't think it had ever been used. It works perfectly.

    Well, last summer I got a box including a Contax RTSI with 35 and 50 Zeiss's, a Spotmatic SP with a 35/3.5, a first Canon F-1 with a FD 35-70 f4, plus some various Tamron, et al. zooms for some of the above and various cable releases, flashes, etc.

    Also included a 65xxxxx Nikon F with a 5.8cm 1.4... That was so dusty and the prism and focus screen were cracked so I had about written it off as a decoration or parts camera... but in the last month or so, however, I've looked it over closer, cleaned it up a bit, and now find the 5.8 is about a 9 (the glass flawless) and the F needs a CLA and a new prism (already replaced the screen) to pe pretty good. I'm about to shoot a roll through it pretty soon, the prism (non-phototomic), while cracked and chipped, is usable in the meantime.

    That whole lot was US$45, or maybe 40, I forget. Free, pretty much.

    Minolta Rangefinder model A1. Three bucks at a Salvation Army store. It was being used to prop open a cabinet door. The slow shutter speeds were a bit slow, but after some exercise they started behaving more normally.

    You can print your 35mm negs with this enlarger - it may be on the auction site, but the guy says he'll actually give it away if you come and pick it up.

    The other stuff that comes with the enlarger would be nice, but the enlarger itself is more trouble than it's worth really. It uses additive color correction (Red Green Blue) rather than the more common subtractive system (Cyan Magenta Yellow). If I recall correctly, it uses 3 colored lamps and a bunch of electronics to accomplish this. They're rare, and it is likely difficult to source parts for it. No wonder he's willing to give it away.

    While it's not a "garage sale find", a couple weeks ago I bought an almost "like-new" Nikon F3HP and an almost "like new" Nikon MD-4 motordrive off of that "big auction site" for a total of $225, including Priority shipping (in two seperate purchases). I have seen just the F3HP body in the condition mine is, sell for over $250 (+ shipping) itself on that auction site.
