    Getting your Chromega head off the enlarger should be self explanatory (undo the 4 thumb screws). Neither the user's manual or the service manual show how to disassemble the bellows/focus unit from the column. This is how I do it and it may be of some help (you may have to join to see the pictures): http://www.largeformatphotography.i...0-repair-parts&p=336716&viewfull=1#post336716
    You may know this but all the hardware on the D5500 is USA/SAE standard and not Metric.
