    My father-in-law gave me his old enlarger,Dejur Coollight enlarger .It was missing the file holder. It a large format(4x5). does anyone know where you can get parts for this enlarge and a manual?
    Plug it in and it works fine, It just needs a good cleaning. and the film carrage
    It came with a dejur-Amsco 4.5 135mm enlarging lens.
    Any info on the unit would be great.:smile:

    These things are pretty old, I doubt there are any specific parts or manuals available.
    The assembly is mostly simple and generic enough that a little jury-rigging can get most
    anything working. Since there is no set limit on space between lamp housing and negative stage,
    it's relatively easy to engineer a filter box for MG filters or color printing filters.
    The coolight is probably Aristo and replacement tubes might still be available.
