I'd say that it's a great deal unless the stuff is falling apart/obviously non-functional/missing major components.
Omega D series enlargers are good enlargers, and any component they don't have that you need you can pick up pretty easily and cheaply.
The rotary processor if it isn't a Jobo is nice, but think of it as a freebie included. If it IS a Jobo, you PROBABLY hit the jackpot. The only downside is if it is an early Jobo CPA/CPP and it starts to fail, you'll basically have to buy another one to replace it instead of fixing it.
If the Speed Graphic is complete and working (ie has lens, film holder of some kind, and the focal plane shutter works reasonably accurately (they were never all that accurate to begin with)), you could expect to pay $300 for a good one anyway. So all that other stuff for $65? cool deal!
That sounds great! Enjoy all of the toys.
I finally got over there to look at things. There are two Omega's, a Lentar, a Beseler 67c, a Majestic tripod, a Speed Graphic body for parts, and a fully functioning Speed Graphic.
He's also selling me all of his darkroom books, tanks, trays, bottles, negative holders, a collection of light meters, safe lights, drum dryer, and a bunch if other stuff.
The thing that sounded like a Jobo is actually a Uniroller, but I haven't a clue what it's for.
The Speed Graphic comes with a wooden case, 7 double sided film holders, and two flashes. We tripped the shutter and the thing moved back and forth on the tracks smoothly. He said he last used it about 4 years ago. The ground glass doesn't look scratched, but I never could figure out how to see through it.
So here are some photos. Is all this worth $385?
And the crown jewel of the bunch...
I thought I had gotten pics of the back but I didn't. It has a part that flips out to see the glass. Then you slide the film holder between the back and the body, and then slide it out when you're done.
Yes, that's worth it. Really, really. I would be tempted to ask you for one of the 4x5 enlargers if you don't need two and you were closer. YES. GO GET IT.
Figure out what you'd want to keep first, then PM me when you do.
Dude!!! If you don't take it... I WILL!! (and I need none of it... but the price is pretty amazing!)
And I call dibs on the drum dryer if you don't want it!
