I think I'd agree....being involved in business book and paper archiving at one time, I have a horror of anything with a musty smell which might harbour spores or mould which could spread. Not sure of the prices which good s/h enlargers fetch currently, but I'd personally start with a search around on Google, Ebay, etc., and get an idea as to what is available.
