    Contact Michael smith at his web site. The guy who develope the azo enlarging head shared a booth with him at the LF conf. I saw the prints and they were outstanding. It was $1100 and fit on a Beseler 4x5 enlarger chassis

    There is a new post on Michael's site.

    "The cost is $1,900 and it fits 4x5 Bessler's and Omega's."

    Michael & Paula are the distributors for the head.

    His name is Pat Brady <bbunch@ameritech.net>, if this is the same guy I've corresponded with. I checked with him before I bought my 4x5 enlarger in April to be sure it would accept the head, since I'd like to get one further down the road. I'll paraphrase his reply.

    He told me it fits any enlarger that fits the Beseler adapter for cold light heads, such as Calumet's stock number AI1005.
