    In the end an enlarger is just a glorified lightbulb on a stand. If you have a good lens the quality would be much the same as that lens on another enlarger. Yours sounds like an orphan enlarger which would be hard to get parts for, though.

    Sold under a variety of names, made, I think, by Fujimoto, these enlargers have made many very good prints. Be sure to use a foot switch of some sort, because vibration is always a bit of a problem with enlargers not built like old Soviet tanks. Welcome to darkroom work. Enjoy.

    Welcome to projection printing! As pointed out, that enlarger should be OK. Make some prints and if they don't come out ask here. Plenty of help available!
