Hello Alexis and welcome to the dark side. EASmith is pretty straight on. Getting what you need depends on where you are in the world, in the states the Beselar 23C is a super enlarger that should last your lifetime, and Omegas are awesome as well. Anywhere else in the world, there are many other options including Dursts. I have given away several Beselar machines in the last couple of years, and still have more to go.
BTW, my cousin has a daughter named Alexis M.--you aren't from north central Pa. are you?
