    Continuing the cleanout, lots of excess stuff to get rid of!

    ***LENS SHOWN IN PICTURES IS NOT INCLUDED IN SALE***

    Working on the "smalls" now, since the big stuff is listed, but NOT moving...

    Here I've got an adapter for mounting to an ENLARGER. I guess you could put it on anything you want, but its got a hole for a 39mm enlarger lens thread.

    Haven't seen one of these before I purchased this one, although I'm sure its not the only one in existence
    So, if you WANT to correct, or create distortion on the lensboard plane of your enlarger, give this a whirl! You can twist on axis, and rotate it to almost 35deg!

    Looking for $235 shipped in the USA, int'l will be $250 all in

    Prices also include Paypal fees.
    USPS Money Order or cash are also accepted. Same price

    Shipping via USPS Priority Mail domestic and overseas.

    cheers,
    Dan

    This might be useful in identifying the device.

    This appears to be part of a somewhat different version of the Elwood Distortion Lens Board, an accessory for the Elwood enlargers. In use, the print or easel & print was mounted on a similar pivoting platform called the Elwood Swing-Tilt Table that rested on the baseboard. Both the lens pivot and the easel pivot allowed rotation to adjust the tilts in whatever orientation was needed.

    The Distortion Lens Board is shown and described on page 9 here, while the Swing-Tilt Table is shown on page 11. The description and use of these are described on pages 9-12.

    The one shown in the ad appears to allow the upper part to rotate in the base. The horizontal screw below the handle likely locks the rotation in the desired position.
