A rare opportunity to get your hands on darkroom equipment - all you need to get started developing film and printing your photos.

It's an as-is bulk lot, much of it is known to work and some of unknown usability.

Included within three tubs is:
- Durst M600 film enlarger, colour filter, in working order
- Two developing tanks, one large, one small
- Film changing bag, to get the film from its canister into a reel and developing tank
- Over ten large to small trays for prints
- A plug-in timer of unknown usability
- Absolute stacks of Ilford photographic paper in a variety of sizes - unknown usability
- A ferrotype plate and film proofer
- Various measuring tubes, jugs, tongs, film inspection gear, therometers, bulbs and a yellow darkroom light (unsure if it works)
- A print drier, and a (rusted) heating tray (again, unsure if they work)
- Ilford chemicals, film developer, stop bath and fixer being low, most of the paper developer left.

I've used this equipment to develop B&W film, and a few prints.

Developing the film is the easy part, developing the prints was something I never quite had time or the patience for - but with this gear you can succeed where I failed.

As of its last use two years ago, the enlarger is working. It's the major, valuable piece of kit here and has been bagged up (as per the photo) and in the box since. There is no reason for it to no longer work - I haven't been able to check because I've misplaced the EU-NZ power plug it requires.

Otherwise the many pieces of equipment in here might be useful for setting up anything beyond a rudimentary darkroom - equipment I've never gotten to.

It's old gear, and it shows its age. But, it's the bones of a darkroom, and a now-rare photographic experience that a true film enthusiast would be foolish to forego.
