I've been kicking around getting into 4x5 and after 6 months of checking the local craigslist have never once seen an enlarger there. We live in the absolute sticks I swear. The closest I've seen enlargers advertised is a 4 hour drive each way and most of the ones for 4x5 or larger they want anywhere from $500-2000 for. Several of the Beseler 23C II's for reasonable prices at any given time which isn't much help, but that's a long way to drive to find out somethings it's junk.
