    Hi everybody!

    I have a Durst M605 B&W enlarger now and use it for Leica format negatives.
    It is possible to use it also with medium format, for me a 6x6, but I dont have the changeable parts.

    i need a siriocon 80 condensator, a 80mm lens (Rodenstock for example) and a mask for the 6x6 negatives for my negative holder.

    Do you have any good ideas where to find them?
    Do you know the name for the mask? (the samll one is called Sixma35)
    Maybe there are some other type of durst enlarger, those parts also fit in mine??

    Thanks for help!

    The mask you are looking for is called Sixma66. I think ebay.de might be a good place to start looking for the condensor and the mask. I am not sure whether those parts you are looking for are used with any of the other Durst enlargers.

    Northern Photo Services in the UK is the main Durst agent and has plenty of Durst supplies - http://www.northernphoto.co.uk/

    However, I am sure there must be somewhere closer to home.

    Look for secondhand Enlarging Lenses on E-Bay or similar

    If you want a new lens try FotoImpex - http://www.fotoimpex.de/
