Happy days! I made some great images with mine and gave it away to my printer's apprentice.

You might improve your listing by mentioning that the filter drawer takes standard multigrade filters and the whole thing can be converted into a copy stand (someone here was looking for one very recently) Do you have the lens shims, they look like big thin washers? they allow various manufacturers lenses to have the index at the front. Worth mentioning if they are in the box. And finally, I cant remember who made Soligor lenses, although Nikon and Minolta were reckoned to be best for the F30, but you might build that up to.

Thanks for the advice. If I'm honest I hardly understood a word of it, but I'll definitely add it to the listing!!

I bought the enlarger a couple of months ago, with the idea of making a home darkroom. Unfortunately, I came to the conclusion that it would be impossible in a one bedroom flat when I work 40 hours a week.

I will be sad to see it go as I would have loved to go back to the old 35mm days and home chemistry!!

Thanks again

Glad it might be of some help, but I think the days of home darkrooms are seriously numbered, I have no regrets saying goodbye to wasting inordinate sums of money tearing up 10 duff prints to get a good one when a pro printer can do it better, much better- I do miss the smells though, ah that reek of vinegar from your fingers
