I wouldn't consider anything but second hand. Too many enlargers going to rust in the world. In 1976 I bought my beseler 45mxt from an old timer going out of business. He had been using it for many years. I have been using it ever since. In 1990 I decided to buy a new Beseler 45 mxt because I thought there was a good chance the motor would go bad in my old one. Now 2008 about a million prints later my new black one from 1990 still sits unused. My old grey Beseler still cranks up and down everyday and still sits solid and still is square and level. My condensor head is mostly a piece of sculpture but it still is ready for action.
