    Hi folks this is my first post so please be gentle!
    I've just acquired a used fujimoto VR70 with a view to creating colour prints from both 35mm and 120mm formats I will be setting up a "pack up" dark room in one of the spare rooms, process and developing with a jobo CPE-2.At least thats the plan!The first stumbling block for me is the fact that I cant find an instruction book for the enlarger,so the questions are:
    Does anyone know where I can get one in the uk?
    Can anyone tell me if there are any uk dealer here in England that supports the product and where i can get the plug in negaroms?
    Do fujimoto still support the product or even exist? I've tried emailing their website but to no avail.
    I have also emailed Jobo who are listed as us importers but got no reply.
    Have I just waisted my cash and bought a turkey? Please tell me no to the last point! I understand there are two sets of instructions available 1 for the analyser and 1 fro the head?I have seen postings for instructions on the G70 model is there a difference? I think thats about it for now just for me to say any help or advice will be greatly appreciated thanks:smile:

    Hi Pete,

    I purchased my Fujimoto (different model to yours) from Ffords in Scotland. They are very helpful and may be able to answer some of your questions. They said getting repairs and spare parts from Fujimoto is not presently a problem.
