[EDIT: This is probably better suited for the Enlarging forum, under Darkroom - ouch, my bad] Well I finally got an enlarger. Not that I have a darkroom or anything, but it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside all the same. Vivitar VI off of eBay, which made me nervous as I've never gotten anything big and expensive off of eBay, and more so because it was being shipped by Austrlia Post. Well two of the three packages got here today, the third being the dealy that joins the head to the board should be here on monday. $120AUS-ish all up, including a Soligor 90mm f/4.5 lens. Half of the price was the shipping cost, so either way I think I got a good deal. I've heard a lot of good things about the particular enlarger, but now it's in my confused little hands, does anyone here have any first hand experiance with the thing? I've heard the bulbs are hard to replace, but with the internet I figured they'd exist somewhere on earth, any advice with this? I'm also wondered where I'd find a 6x6 negative carrier for it... Also, one of the three hunks of glass inside the head (ok, not great at technical terms), seems to have come loose during shipping, and has an off center small ding in it, just like a slight circular crack, will this ruin the whole machine? Any idea where I'd replace something like that anyway? I also have a rather novice question about enlarger lenses - are they all on a universal screw mount, or do I need to essentuall match the lens to my enlarger or it wont attach? I was never sure about this. I'm still playing with it and making sure nothing else is damaged, but overall I'm quite happy, hopefully when I get some more money together I can get some blackout fabric and trays and chemicals and junk.
