I’m looking for a good used Durst 138 to enlarge my 5x7 negs.
Melbourne area preferred.

I wish you every success. These are a sensational addition to any darkroom. I probably made more enlargements over my life time on 138 & 138 S enlargers than any other device — they were ubiquitous in commercial operations for decades. Most would have been scrapped 10 years or more ago as the evil of 0s & 1s spread its menacing tentacles.

Others well worth investigation might be DeVerre and Kamm

Keen to hear how you get on.

Good luck with your search for a 138.

It reminds me that I really should pull my finger out and finally restore that 3S (precursor to the 138) that I've got buried in my shed...
