I have a Beseler 23C II and I don't use it at all anymore.I tried a few local schools,but they didn't have any use for it. Any ideas?

I had a Fuji SD 690 but ended giving it away when I went digital a few years ago. It was just taking up space in my attic.
Hopefully the people I gave it to are providing it a good home.

Sometimes you can remove the head and convert it for taking shots vertically.

I guess I was lucky, I sold my entire darkroom two years ago, although a give away price. Every thought of trying to sell it on Ebay (or have some one you know well it on Ebay).

I turned my Beseler into a reading lamp.

Could turn it into a really BIG closeup lens.;)

I recall reading about people who used to use their enlarger lenses as taking lenses. I had three lenses (Nikon, Fujinon) and feel sure they would've made good taking lenses for some purpose or another, but never used them that way.
