I suspect this will become a long thread as most folks are partial to what they use. I'll leave it to others to recommend equipment, but will suggest you buy the best you can and anticipate the evolution of your work to the highest level of which you are capable. Specifically, buy an enlarger that will handle the largest negative you can ever imagine yourself someday working with and the largest 'wet' side of your darkroom you can afford the space for. Get the best enlarging lenses, easel, grain magnifyer etc. you can buy...even borrow if need be. Consider the outlay to be an investment. You can always resell the stuff someday if you choose to, but the finest equipment will sustain the most value. Good luck!!
