Yeah, I've been searching ebay, and even though I haven't yet come across my dream machine (which I actually haven't even identified yet), I can see that people are giving them away. So I think the best policy is to decide on the enlarger and head, and then wait for a nice one to pop up.

Omega D series with dichroic head? Are those still made or serviced? One problem with electronic gear is that capacitors often go flakey after a while. I want equipement that can be serviced.
