Cheap... don't know what price point you're looking for but you could take a look at the Intrepid camera enlarger attachment thingy.

A well functioning enlarger will make printing easier and less frustrating. Suggest De Vere or LPL etc. something reasonably well supported. I think Durst is now limited in terms of spares. What enlarger do you have at the moment?

I agree with maltklaus - the Intrepid 4x4 conversioin kit is worth looking at for just 180 with all new parts.

Good used 5x4 enlargers such as De Vere, LPL and Durst are now quite expensive. You may find something else cheaper that needs some work but make sure the parts are available before buying.

Happy hunting !

Neil.
