|From my original post on the SM9|
The other highlight happened just this week when I received a free Omega D-II (predecessor to the D2V which is what I really want) enlarger is in great condition. I've wanted a 4 X 5 enlarger for years and now this one is complete with the 4 X 5 condenser. 'Nuff said. It'll fit nicely beside my Bessler 67C that I use for 35mm and 6 x 4.5 cm. One day I hope to add medium format to the D-II.
Both of those only cost a bit of gasoline to go an get them and the trips were a nice for Mrs. M. as she seldom gets out and about and does not always desire to go along on my errands around town.
For those new to the blog Mrs. M's health is not always up to doing things. She has a condition that causes paralysis (among other things) and she no longer walks. So errands require getting in and out of a car too often for her to enjoy the outing.
Well, much more went on during 2013. Many things were completed and many more left uncompleted. As I reviewed a list of things to do from 2007, 2008, and 2009 I found many of the same things are still undone.
Now to dust off my old Signal Electric spark gap key and get ready for Straight Key Night . Or I may just use my J-38.
