Used 4 x 5 enlargers tend to be quite inexpensive, because they are large and heavy and because there aren't as many people using them commercially as there used to be.

I bought mine (an Omega D6 with a good set of carriers and lenses, an Ilford Multigrade light source, a condensor light source and a bunch of other goodies) off of Craigslist for a very reasonable cost. I know others who have essentially been given one free.

A new one is, however, very expensive.
