    Can anyone kindly point me to someone who will do enlarger repairs? My Beseler 45 VXL was damaged in a flood, and Beseler have supplied a new one, but in a bad state. Basically, the Focus stage needs disassembly and putting back together again. (Have made all the recommended adjustments.)

    The enlarger was shipped to me in the UK near York, but the shipper isn't responsible for the problems, & the Beseler warranty as I read it doesn't apply outside the States. They are helpful enough on the 'phone, but we are going nowhere fast. HELP!

    If you are careful to lay the parts out in order as you disassemble the enlarger, it is not that difficult to disassemble and put back together. Adjustment of the focus stage takes more time than anything else and it probably needs that now.
