MUST SELL - NEED THE SPACE! WILL ENTERTAIN ANY REASONABLE OFFER!! Durst AC800 photo enlarger in excellent condition from an estate auction. I have no room to store this anymore so it MUST GO!!! Unit appears to be in perfect working order but I am not a photography expert so am still selling it as is. Came from a working studio. THIS AUCTION IS FOR PICKUP ONLY, I CANNOT SHIP THIS ITEM. Besides, I would really want you to plug it in and run it through its paces prior to finalizing the purchase just so you know for yourself it's working properly and is what you're looking for. I have powered up the unit and run it through a few paces as far as functions go from what I've been able to see with online operations manuals. But again, I'm no expert here. Unit does not have any accessories. The negative plate is a Binema 35. Lens is a BELSAR 31714. At this price the road trip to pick it up is definitely worth the trouble! Please write me with any questions you may have on it. MUST SELL MUST SELL MUST SELL!!!! THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO GET A HUGE PRICE BREAK ON A HIGH TECHNOLOGY MULTI-THOUSAND DOLLAR PIECE OF EQUIPMENT!!

See my other items, it's all gotta go!!! I will ship within 48 hours of receipt of payment unles it's out of the country and the sale ends on a Friday or Saturday, or media mail, since I have to go to the post office during business hours to send those. Everything else will go through the 24 hour kiosk so I can ship at any time. Please don't ding my stars for USPS shipping times, I am not them. I want to be able to continue offering great items like this to all of you!

Thanks for looking!

If you are pleased with the product and service from me, please make sure you leave top marks on all detailed sellers ratings (star ratings or DSRs) when you are leaving feedback. If you are not satisfied please notify me of the problem so we can try and resolve any issues before leaving feedback. On a normal 1-5 scale, 1 is poor, 5 is fantastic and 3 is average. Ebay has made changes to their feedback system where 4 is average to poor and only 5 is acceptable. Please keep this in mind when leaving feedback, thanks!

I pride myself on the fantastic service and 100% feedback rating that I have with well over 2200 transactions in the last 10 years including several hundred repeat or multiple purchase buyers, and would like to continue providing great items to you at fantastic prices. Please help me continue providing great items to you at fantastic prices by leaving top stars in DSRs! (Hey, that rhymes - top stars in DSRs!!)

Please check other items I'm selling on any site - google "lookingwst" with the quotes. Thanks!

Please use the shipping calculator to price shipping to your area if it is not marked with a fixed rate. Some more expensive items that should have insurance on them may have insurance included in the purchase price. Please see auction details to see if any of this applies to this auction.

Please view my other auctions to see other items that may interest you that can ship together to save shipping costs. Google 'paypal lost my money' and see how many people have been burned by them, you should know the risks! My feedback says it all - I have over 1000 non-Pypal positive transactions including many repeat buyers. Payment by Paypal unless... you know the rules, you must ask me. Payment in US dollars only. Payment by foreign currency will be returned and negative feedback left. Buyer pays actual shipping costs as described in listing or by quote if not. Don't forget to check my other auctions, and maybe even bookmark my seller's list when you get there - I sell a lot of of items besides car parts! Read the details in the listing, the title is 55 characters and not long enough to be the full description!
Ask questions and request more photos if you're unsure! Please, really, I mean it.

Refunds on undamaged items only and only with good reason. "I changed my mind" is not a good reason.
"The part doesn't fit" is not a valid reason - did you read the description?
Buy the right part for your car. I know AMC, not the other makes. You know your car and its parts much better than I do.
If I misrepresented an item that is a good reason - if I state conclusively that the piece is exactly for this car. If I'm not sure I will say that, and ask you to be the judge.
I will not refund shipping costs on a return IF I agree to a return and it is your responsibility to pay the shipping to return an item to me.
Most items ship USPS
Shipping damage claims should be directed to the shipping company, not me.
You are getting the item in the photo, I don't use eBay's stock photos (and even if a listing has an eBay stock photo, I still include my own picture of the item).

So there ya go. Pretty straightforward, no nonsense, real-world terms. I'm pretty easy to get along with. Now for the fine print:

Please take the time to read my new and improved (and shorter) selling policies. This is to prevent misunderstandings between purchasers and myself, and is in everyone's best interests to fully understand:

Return Policy/ Warranty Disclaimer: All items are sold as is with no warranties expressed or implied. Descriptions of items and condition are based on physical inspection at or prior to auction listing. Items which state a level of functionality at time of listing does not extend any guarantee of same operation or functionality upon receipt due to the possibility of shipping damage (but if I say something is functional then it means I did check it before listing - I don't sell junk as jewels). Every item I list has a minimum of one picture and bidders can request additional photos, closeups, details, etc. at any time via e-mail. Additional information requested through e-mail will also be posted to the auction if it pertains to the saleability, or lack thereof, or corrected application, of the item. Requests for returns must have a reasonable valid explanation to be honored, otherwise all sales are final.

Shipping/ Damage Policy:I try to determine the most cost effective shipping on an item between UPS and USPS and offer shipping accordingly. Buyer pays stated or actual shipping costs via USPS or UPS ground, 50 state U.S. and Canada sales only unless as noted. Stated shipping costs may include a materials fee - bubble envelopes, packing peanuts, and the daily news does cost money! Some items may require specialized packaging - for those I state additional packaging costs in the auction listing. You wouldn't want your oil painting on canvas to ship in a brown paper wrapper, would you? If you are outside the USA /Canada please contact me first before bidding. Depending on the item I may agree to ship to your location with payment in US dollars.


It appears that USPS got sloppy this last holiday season and created some headaches for me, so - If an item is received damaged through shipping you should begin a claim through the shipping service if the item was shipped UPS for under $100 value - their insurance is automatic. If I have a package returned here damaged I will inform you of the situation and attempt to claim a refund of the shipping costs. If I can get a refund of the shipping cost I will refund you your full amount. If I cannot get a refund on the shipping I can only refund you the purchase price of the item.

Poor Feedback/Zero Feedback Policy:I welcome new ebayers to my auctions! After all, we all had zero feedback once. But, I've been burned a few times by ghost bidders that disappear after the auction end, so on any item that exceeds $250 from opening bid or from bid escalation, I reserve the right to request your contact information through eBay services. I may also refuse bids from bidders with poor feedback ratings, or bidders that I have had negative prior dealings with, at any time for any auction at any price. Legitimate bidders are welcome!

Shipping Policy: Please, if you want confirmation that I have recieved payment add delivery confirmation to your payment and NOT anything signature required. My town's post office is extremely busy and not the most efficient place in the world and it's so slow I go to the next town over to do my shipping. I can't do that for a signature required so I have to wait it out over there. Thanks!

If an item is shipping USPS and buyer wants to have tracking on the package, buyer must indicate this through communication after auction end so I can include the extra charge(s) into the total shipping cost.

About me: I am not an antiques dealer, I'm an automobile enthusiast (specifically the American Motors Corporation/AMC Javelins and AMXs). The majority of items I sell pertain to the collector automobile hobby (in season) but I do list antiques and collectibles as well. If an item interests you and you have any questions at all about the item, please e-mail me. You might know more about the item than I do. Be specific with your questions and I will answer them to the best of my ability. If I am misrepresenting an item due to my lack of experience with your specialty, please educate me and I will update the ad with corrected information provided I can verify your statements through a third party such as a Google search. Links to informational sites are appreciated. Additional information requested through e-mail will also be posted to the auction if it pertains to the saleability or lack thereof, or corrected application, of the item. I do not clean or recondition items unless as noted in the ad, usually only to confirm condition of the item where condition may be hidden by dirt or grime. I leave restoration up to the successful bidder. Additional photos/closeups available via e-mail, just ask for specifics. I am not an expert on other makes/models of vehicles either. Again, please ask questions! Request additional photos! If I'm listing parts for other makes/models it's because I ran across them and would rather see the parts get to a fellow car enthusiast who can help better their car with them, than see them go to the crusher.

Not-For-Profit auctions: Two times a year, I will host not-for-profit auctions for a week. I support the American Cancer Society Relay for Life in early summer, and in November, I hold auctions to benefit the children of my late best friend Kristina Paul - a true Angel who walked this earth, and passed away too young at 36 years of age on November 25, 2005. If an item is listed as not-for-profit, 100% of the auction sale price will go to the cause. I list these auctions this way because eBay has very specific regulations regarding donation auctions, and my friend's daughters' college fund does not fall under their specifications. I absorb all listing fees and final sale fees, and whatever I may have paid for the items when I acquired them. Thanks for visiting, and happy bidding!
