    Looking for one or two of these at a reasonable price.
    Regards,
    Steve B

    PS also looking for the M670 colour manual (or a pdf/copy)

    You might check out "Pacific Rim Cameras".I've picked up some Durst parts from them in the past.

    Good Luck

    Steve, you can use glass in the bottom quite happily and just a mask in the top, that's how I've used my M601's & M670 for years.

    It's true I could just make a mask I guess as I currently use a single glass below the masks.
    Is this the wrong way round then. The glass was in the bottom (the last thing in the light path) when I bought the enlarger. Is this the wrong way round then?

    Erm hang on... I think I just agreed with you. Gotten a bit confused here. What do I actually mean?

    Thanks Mike, have just had a quick look. They've got some great stuff but thibk I will explore options a little closer to home first.

    That's the best way around, dust is less of a problem. A mask is a bit fiddly to make unless you have metal working skills, I made 2 35mm masks in mid 70's but I couldn't make a 120 version. Mine must have come with an enlarger.

    Try Nova in Warwick, they may have something.

    Just checked and they have a lot of 2nd hand darkroom stuff. Will give them a call on Tuesday.
    Thanks Ian.
