    Condensers, condensers everywhere

    I have either 3 or 4 sets of enlarger condensers. Two CB-7 type, maybe a 45M, and one old Kodak. The latter is a friend of mine, but the other three are using valuable floor space. Is there anything cool to be done with these short of doorstops or destruction? I've kept them thinking I may use one sometime, but my enlargers are now so heavily modified that only one will take a condenser lamphouse. My ceiling is on the low side at 7.5", therefore any enlargement would be limited.

    Thanks for the tips.

    It's too far to the post office.

    Maybe stocking stuffers. Coal is out of style.

    When I was in a wheelchair, not anymore, I often used Express Mail Boxes and had them picked up from my front door.

    I prefer USPS service to any other company

    The USPS, at least in my daughter's town, does a little shopping of their boxes. The one with avocados is still 'lost' in the post office and that was a year ago. Another, the tape was carefully slit and contents removed. Letters to the postmaster also don't seem to get there, as there has been no response to the complaint. I now use UPS. Takes longer maybe, but less than a year for avocados. And packages seem to arrive with their contents.
