Jeff S. Kennedy   Well, you need an enlarger, lense(s), trays, chemicals, tanks and reels (if you plan on developing the film too). If you're interested I happen to have an enlarger and lenses etc. that I've never used that I am planning on selling. The enlarger will handle 35mm as well as 6x7 film.

Jeff S. Kennedy   Hmmm, I received your email and responded. Must be lost in cyber space. First of all the lenses are in perfect condition. I live in a very dry place so fungus is not a problem. The equipment I have is all new and never used (in original boxes with all the paperwork). There is everything you need, minus chemicals, to start developing and printing from 35mm or 6x7 film. I paid around $525 for it all so I'd like to get a little more than $100 for it. ;-)))

Jeff S. Kennedy   Sharon, no offense taken. Go for the $300 set up. Get it off the market before I start trying to sell mine. I don't want to have to compete with a price like that. ;-)))
