    Has anybody used this enlarger? Theryre very inexpensive. Also, can anybody explain why the A69S (Focomat design) is so much more expenensive than their C67 series (look like Dursts) ?

    I don't know whether this explains it, but the A-69 series has automated focussing, even for two lenses in twist mount.

    The focomat design is expensive due to the design. The TR66 is a tradition designed 6x6 enlarger marketed for school use. The dome shaped head is mounted on a column. To focus the TR 66 uses a bellows vs helicoil. The lensboard is fixed. New the TR 66 is expensive for the design but price is relative.
