    In the process of setting up a darkroom, I happened upon a nice looking, almost new condenser, however I'm pretty sure it doesn't fit a Beseler 45 V XL, Zone VI 5X7 type 2 or the Durst laborator 1200.

    There is no manufacturers name on it and here are the clues. On the front where the handle to pull it out is, there is stamped in the metal:

    60X60 F135 BOTTOM

    It measures approximately 3 3/4" X 3 1/4".

    I Think it came from the place where I got the Zone VI.

    Any ideas what it might fit as it needs to reside where it will be used.

    60x60 would be in mm, so 6x6, 2 1/4 x 2 1/4.
    Does it fit your enlarger ?
    In that case it should be used for 6x6 and 6x4.5 negatives.

    The markings are identical to those on one of the two condensers needed for 6x6 use on a Philips PCS130. As ann says, though, a photo will help positively ID it.

    As they say on some other boards no photo, no condenser.
