    Looking for a replacement bulb for my Omega C700 color head. It's an 85 watt quartz halogen bulb, part no. 471-400. I know it's a longshot, but if someone has one to spare, please let me know.

    Been there. Not interested in that kind of markup. It's more than I paid for the enlarger and accessories.

    Sometimes that happens -- the replacement parts cost more than what you paid for the setup.

    You might try Bernie's Photo Center on the North Side, (412) 231-1717.

    They used to have a ton of enlargers and might have the part you need. However, some prices for their used gear is as much as new.

    Since you know the voltage and wattage, order a generic through your local lighting shop.

    $14 -- that's a very good price.

    Rick, Mike Barry -- thanks for the tips. I wasn't sure about the generics, but all feedback indicates they work just fine. And $14 is a good price. Thanks again.
