    Any body have a clue what this breed of head is?

    Its on a 45 chassis, and I see the origional lamphouse&condenser sitting on the baseboard, along with what I assume to be the power supply for the retrofit head. I won't get a real look at it for a week, but I'd like to have an idea.

    It's an Ilford multigrade 500 head.

    Hi Jason,

    Is that the Beseler color head or as mentioned the Ilford head?

    Do a Google Image search on Ilford multigrade 500 - you can see it is the same. Not sure what other bits are supposed to come with it though - I think it needs a control unit as well as the power supply. Someone here will have one...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Yes, there should be a power supply and a controller. There is also an optional foot switch. RH Designs make a dedicated replacement controller too.
