    Someone is selling this setup for $400 and I'm thinking of purchasing it. What do you all think? Sounds pretty complete?

    I dont have any idea what things are worth these days, but If I were going back into the darkroom I would want a more versitile enlarger. One that I could add a medium format lens and negative holder to. I dont think you can with that one, but I could be wrong.

    I'd bet it's easy to find all of this used for less than $50. In fact, I wouldn't call it a good deal until the price dropped below $30. You can do a whole lot better for $400.
