    I just acquired this enlarger. It came out an attic, and has some cleanup work and needs a new lamp cord. The bellows are still flexible and the lens is dirty but without fungus :smile: It is a wee little Kodak Antistigmat 150 mm lens with a washer stop inside.

    It is the 4x6 version, with a tin top and a ground glass diffuser. It has a wooden two piece glass negative carrier with a wooden chassis on a cast iron column that clamps to a counter top.

    I know it won't compare to printing on an Omega D series, or the like, but has anyone printed with one of these?

    I currently do not have a way to print my 4x5 negs. It would be great to print my negs again. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this enlarger.

    Thanks,
    steve

    If the cord is in good shape I'd fire it up and try it!
