    Given that the person in question earned a living in the colour separation/ printing trade, it might not have been as difficult as you think (depreciated kit that management wanted out the door & didn't care about any longer - same deal with your lab guy wanting stuff out the door) - he will have known if someone was clearing out interesting bits of equipment - news about these sort of things travels pretty quickly in the trade amongst those who know that there might be someone interested.

    Nope. He paid top dollar for new stuff from the dealer himself, who didn't give deals of things he had a monopoly on to anyone, because back then there were still plenty of interested customers worldwide. Every single big Durst enlarger in his inventory sold to someone who could afford it. It was accessories which ran dry and got him overextended scheming what to do about it (the dealer). I got my stuff from someone who could easily dispense with a couple million of older though still excellent lab gear, in order to offset it with fresh equipment amortization investment, and could easily leverage 200 million dollar commercial property deals - big big difference.
