So far I've tried vanbar, local camera stores, ebay, gumtree and the last 2 issues of photographic trader but haven't seen anything at all let alone anything around my budget.
Yep, I've got one for you. It's a Durst CE1000 Laborator B&W enlarger that goes up to 4x5. It's almost new and has been in a wooden crate with straw stuffing for a number of years. I just checked it out and it's still in beautiful condition. I will have to take the crate and contents to a scale to determine the weight for shipping via truck. Unfortunately, the major problem would be the cost of shipping to Australia.
