    I never liked the c760, I had the condenser version. The neg carriers were terrible and prone to shifting. The slanted xl column is about the nicest thing on it. If no one here on apug has that part I suggest you take a look at other enlarger setups with existing color heads. The lpl enlargers are very nice in my opinion.

    I've a couple c760 heads I am thinking of parting out. They all have 6x7 boxes. If you can't find anything closer send me a PM.

    I bought a complete light box (the C700 and C760 mixing boxes are interchangeable) on ebay and just used the mixing box.
