I don't frequent thrift shops but the day before yesterday my grandson asked me to drive him to one near his house so he could sell something or other. Rather than just wait in the car I decided to go in and have a look. After wandering around a few minutes looking at junk that used to be other people's treasure I spotted an enlarger in one corner of the building. It was a Beseler. I spent a few minutes looking for a model number and finally found a plate that said "MODEL 23 C SERIES II." The price on it was $30. I was sorely tempted to buy it on the spot but instead I went home and did some research on eBay, APUG and here. I decided that it was worth the price so yesterday I went back and bought it. Seems to be in fine shape. The lamp works but the switch needs replacing and there's no negative carrier. Unfortunately, there's also no lens, so maybe it's not as good a buy as I thought. There's a drawer below the lower bellows that obviously holds a contrast filter (#2 came with it). I'm guessing the place between the bellows that opens with a lever is where the negative carrier goes. There's also a drawer between the lamp housing and the upper bellows. What's that for? I'm guessing some sort of filter.
