    In addition to the issue I mentioned in my private message, I'm moving this to a sub-forum where you'll be more likely to get an answer.

    it's an enlarger and not a camera really suitable for taking images, I'd literally pass on it - you have my contact details so let me know what you're looking for and I can probably help

    it's a magic lantern projector, not an enlarger or a camera.

    Thx Ed

    Either way, any way, the only part that's usable is the lens

    Ah, I can see that now, it is a projector type device, is there any value to it, is it worth buying if I can get it at the right price and re-invest the proceeds?

    Actually, I am always looking for a good deal on a complete Magic Lantern.

    Depending on the lens on it you may be able to turn a profit. I bought a magic lantern at an auction for $5 and it had a nice Bausch and Lomb 18" lens on it that I cleaned up and sold for $150.
