    Aristo 10 x 21 Enlarger Lamp House.
    Aristo Model # 9/60-D/R
    V-54 Hi-Output, dimmable lamp.
    Compatible with Ilford or Kodak VC filters.

    Originally built into a lamphouse module which converted an 8x20 Canham camera into an 8x20 horizontal enlarger.

    Closely spaced tubes and an acrylic diffuser gives a perfectly smooth, uniform, hotspot-free light. The dimmer permits adjustable light so enlarging times can be kept short. At maximum setting, this thing is amazingly bright.

    Less than 100 hours of operating time.

    120 Volt, 60 hertz, 300 watt high tension power supply.
    Foolproof high tension wire connections.
    Pre-heater cord and timer cord.

    Actual illuminated area is 10 x 21 inches.
    Physical dimensions of lamphouse: 11x22x3I inches.
    Power supply is 6x7x17 inches long, fused.

    $750.00 + insured shipping

    The cherry wood lamphouse and negative carrier originally designed to mount his unit onto a K.B. Canam 8x20 camera is available for an extra $100. (Detailed photos are available)

    I'm not set up for PayPal, but Visa/MC is ok.

    Recall what Louise Kessler, Product Support at Voltarc/LCD (Aristo), recently said about these lamps:

    "The strongest output of any lamps will be in the 1st hundred hours of its use."

    As far as illumination level is concerned, that indeed does make this unit almost brand new.

    Ken's post prompted me to review my printing history on this thing.

    I assumed 5 to 7 minutes total lamp time for set-up, composing, focusing, test prints, and final exposure.

    Based on my records of prints produced, this unit has less than 10 hours on it.

    That's really like "Almost New"
