    Beseler 45M

    What is a fair price for a working and well worked Beseler 45M with the condenser head? Thanks.

    Not very much, I'm afraid. Shipping charges might exceed the value. I think you would be doing well to get $100 dollars for it as local pickup.

    I bought a low miles, CB-7 with lots of goodies, including a nice lens for $125 about a year ago. The CB7 is the rare fancy model of the 45M. I gave away the low miles 45M I had to a good friend of mine.

    There was a 4x5 Omega enlarger and complete darkroom kit for sale on Craigslist nearby for $100. I don't think that ever sold.

    These are all great enlargers, but there is big supply and low demand.

    45M w/aristo cold light @ ~ $100. couple of years ago.
    See them on Chicago CL with folks asking close to $1k. And see them for weeks then months etc.

    It's going to cost several times more to ship it to Colombia than the $$ you pay for it. If it's local to you consider a premium price against what it would cost to buy plus shipping. It could still be a decent price if it exceeds what you see here.

    I bought my MX for 75 bucks about 10 years ago. You can barely give em away now, but if you're selling I'd hang on to it for the Great Film Comeback. If you're buying, don't pay more than a hundred cuz the Great Film Comeback might not be for a while. :-)

    I brought an almost new 45M with the Dichro 45S color head and a box full of carriers earlier this year for around $125.

    I gave away one Beseler 4x5, and trashed my Dejur 4x5. Hard to give them away these days. Still have a beseler 23c with color head in my attic, any takers?

    With the condenser head they are often on Craigslist in the $100 - $150 range, asking price.

    I bought an older 45MCRX for $175 several years ago. The selling points were 3 negative carriers, 3 Rodenstock lenses and new bellows. Also included were a full set of Ilford VC filters and 2 boxes of fresh paper in 8x10 & 11x14. A pretty good deal. I suspect that even better deals can be found now.
