Fujimoto G70 enlarger

Hi all

I have been following the local listings for used darkroom equipment, because I know that at some point, I would like to try making prints myself. Now, I might have an opportunity to buy a used Fujimoto G70, which is interesting, because it should be able to handle my 6x6 and 6x7 negatives. I don't know much about enlargers, other than my fathers old one (Durst 606, if I remember correctly), which I still have, but that does not take 6x7 prints. And the Fujimoto G70 looks a lot newer.

The seller asks how much I would pay for it. From the pictures, it seems in fine condition. I have made an appointment to go see it, when he clears his corona isolation. So, here are a few questions:

What should I look for / examine, before buying it? Light in the lamp I guess, but what more?

Accessories - are there any which should accompany the sale, like holders or other things?

And finally, what would be a fair price (very roughly), if my stomach feels like it all works?

The much easier and cheaper alternative is to just use my fathers instead :).
