    Hi all,

    Recently acquired my third enlarger, a Durst M370 Color, even though I haven't even got a place to put it. But hey, you probably know the feeling: can't let such a beauty go to the garbage bin, especially if it's for free! :wink:

    Now, since I've never had a color head (I do own an L1200 with Ilford Multigrade head and a 670BW with condensor head as well), I wondered how this thing is actually constructed. And how to change a lamp for it. Now, after removing a few screws, I still can't figure out how to open it. :confused:

    Anyone have a reference to an online manual for it or some tips?

    The M605 manual is in English and is quite like my M670, the 370/670 are quite similar in build its just the size capability that differs.

    I know I changed the bulb in my M670 and it wasn't immediately apparent how to do this, but turned ourt to be very simple. Can't remember without looking and it's in the UK, and I'm in Turkey :D

    Thanks for pointing this out, the 605 manual should be useful.
