Ebay is a great place to pick up inexpensive darkroom equipment. I have acquired a complete darkroom set up that way. People are going digital and the stuff can be picked up for a song. I picked up a dry mount press that sells for $800 new for $150 and the shipping was only about $35. My enlarger was sent from California to New York and arrived in perfect condition. Don't worry about shipping. The best deals can be had by buying complete set ups. I decided to pick and choose what I wanted and payed a little more. Still much less than buying from a retail store, even used.
