A 4x5 Enlarger for $35!!!!

I went to Bring Recycling today and bought this beauty for $35! It has an 80mm Schneider lens and the condenser is clear. All I've had to do is clean it up and lubricate the moving parts. I don't have a darkroom built yet so until I actually use to make a print I won't know for certain how well it works, but it certainly appears to be in good shape. Heck, for $35 I can afford to make repairs as needed. These things can cost as much as $1500 new and $400-$900 used.
