Hello from Baton Rouge, La
I'm hoping to get some help and from what I've seen so far, I've come to the right place.
I'm at a loss at to how to price some darkroom equipment I was given over 20 years ago.
It's a E.Leitz/Wetzlar Focomat Ic with base tray.
It's in fair shape, but hasn't been used since before I got it.
How do I judge the value of it? The photography stores here haven't shown much interest in analog equipment.
What some options for selling it?
ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Hello LSULance and welcome to APUG. Regarding prices, when searching for comparable, the only thing that counts is if it sold and what the selling price was. An item that didn't sell will only tell you what price is wrong. Of course, finding potential buyers has to be factored in. Ebay is probably the biggest market to check for comparison but sometimes flukes do occur, that is, someone overpays, and that sold price is never achieved again. Anyway, become a subscriber and you can perhaps find you buyer at APUG. Good Luck.

Here is a thread on your enlarger:
A basic google search turns up these results:
And this thread says $800 to $100:
Welcome to APUG, I spent a lot of time in BR a few years back.
Completed prices on ebay would be the best place to start.
Aside from that one of these was in the recent PHSNE (Photographic Historical Society of New England) auction.
It collected no bids, and there was no minimum bid amount for it.
My recommendation would be to consider keeping the lens to market somewhere like APUG, or perhaps ebay, and sell the rest of the enlarger to someone doing Steampunk.
