    Quick question for anyone who owns a Durst M605. I'm thinking about upgrading enlargers, and would like to know if the M605 has the capacity to be aligned and adjusted easily.

    I can't find a manual online anywhere, so I'm stuck looking at pictures trying to determine if the right knobs are present.

    Thanks!

    Yes, alignment is pretty easy.

    Lamp centering is easy, but adjustment of the baseboard, lens axis, and carrier plane has to be done by shims. On the other hand it is not prone to flex.

    PM me if you want to see a manual.
