I too can attest the seller is a very nice guy. He also has a post on local CL.
Last time we spoke he had a seitex scanner for sale as well for short money - a great investment for those LF shooters (8X10 and up), as you can scan (dry or wet) flatbed up to 11X14 or maybe more, in a single pass in quality that is no longer available even from the nicer current epson scanners... (this was a mega bucks machine at the time 20-40K $)....
