If you do not have much processing experience you will probably not get good results doing E6 slide processing; start on Black and White then GRADUATE to colour as I did ! The E6 chemicals are expensive and oxidise quickly in the bottles once mixed. I send my E6 slide films to Guernsey - very much cheaper and good D-Max quality,( unless I use a 'process-paid' film of course !
Regarding the ENLARGER: If you can come to Brentwood Essex you can have some FREE Gamer enlargers I have; a 35mm to 6x6 one with lens and a 'Universal' 35mm to 6x9 format one with colour filter draw I used for lots of colour printing until I got my LPL C770 Pro with dichroic filters.
Got COMPUTERISED and 'slightly Digitised Pentax K10D' but FILM STILL RULES !
