I inherited a number of items from an uncle. While cleaning out one of his spaces, I came across part (the horizontal part, from what I could tell) of a Saltzman enlarger. It consists of the horizontal frame (a triangular, hinged holder), bellows (dusty but intact), and some other parts that I can't name. Also two separate pieces: a matte black metal rectangular tray with a circular top edge that seems to be made to fit around some sort of corresponding circular piece (it's maybe a foot or so in diameter); and then also the tray shown in the Saltzman catalog picture below (nevermind, I tried to upload it but ran out of picture options). I do not have the vertical slide/frame that the contraption travels up and down upon.

I don't really know how I should go about selling it. I saw from a search on this forum that sometimes it's better to sell the parts, but am unsure which (or if any) of these parts has any value to anyone. I suppose I could try eBay but this thing is heavy (maybe 50-70 pounds) and unwieldy, so that would be a last resort.

It's in Manhattan, so it's maybe easier to find someone locally, but I'm open to ideas about where to look for a buyer. I'd like it to find a home with someone who'll put it to good use.

Thank you very much for any insight or guidance.

That looks like the parts from a vertical enlarger.

Yes. I think it's the horizontal portion of a vertical enlarger.

Again, thanks for any info that anyone can provide.

Your two most likely venues to sell this are through this forum and through Craigslist. You should also be aware that people have given these things away because there aren't many likely buyers who are also close-by enough to pick them up. In any event, don't expect any sort of big payday for the enlarger...

A complete Saltzman enlarger can weigh 1,400 pounds.

For more information, here is a catalog in PDF format. (http://www.digoliardi.net/saltzman_sm.pdf)
