    I am not sure of this but I don't think you can enlarge 120 negatives on the Durst c35. Assuming you only want to print B&W you could look at Meopta's enlarger. I got a mint Meopta Magnifax 4a with a Meopta Meogon S 80mm lens from eBay.co.uk for not too much money a few years ago. And they are probably even cheaper now. I am very pleased with the results and I can print negatives from 35mm up to 6x9. Hope that helps.

    There are plenty of medium format enlargers on eBay, so I don't see the point of buying something like a C35. I have a Meopta Opemus, which was about £15 and had never been used, and a Durst M370 with various different condensers to do 35mm up to 6x7. Now the Durst was more expensive, and you say you want something cheap, so Meopta is probably the place to start. The UK importer has this chart on their website, which compares features between a variety of Meopta, Durst and other enlargers:
