View Full Version : Durst Laborator 138s with color head CLS 1000 (Berlin, Germany)

08-26-2013, 07:41 AM
Hello everyone,

I am giving away my Durst Laborator 138s with color head CLS 1000. It comes with lens revolver for 3 lenses, trafo, mixing chamber and a 360mm enlarging lens.

Please note that the table is missing.

The Laborator is ready for picking up near Berlin (self-collector only).

In return, I would like to have... let's say 10 rolls of TriX, Acros or FP4+ in 120mm. ;)

The Laborator is very large and heavy, and my darkroom is too small for it, that's why I use a smaller model now.

I would love to see the Laborator in good hands, so if you have the space for this great enlarger, then please do not hesitate to contact me (webmaster (at) sandra-wittmann (dot) de).

Best regards,


(The same in German, as posted in the fotoimpex forum)

Hallo allerseits,

hätte einen Durst Laborator 138s mit Farbmischkopf CLS 1000 abzugeben. Kommt mit Objektivrevolver für 3 Objektive, Trafo, Mischkammer und einem 360mm-Objektiv.

Dem Gerät fehlt der Tisch.

An Selbstabholer bei Berlin gegen... sagen wir 10 Rollen TriX Rollfilm? Acros nehme ich auch, oder FP4+, Hauptsache, meine Hasselblad hat was Leckeres zu futtern ;-D

Achtung: Das Gerät ist sehr groß und schwer. Man braucht eine sehr hohe Zimmerdecke! Deswegen trenne ich mich auch davon, sonst würde ich es behalten...
(Bei mir werkelt deshalb ein kleinerer Laborator, der besser in meine Mini-Dunkelkammer passt).

LG Sandra

This head for free??!! Perhaps one of the best 5x7 heads ever made.

It's too bad I can't get to Berlin.

ic-racer, yes, it's this head... I know it's a shame to let this thing go, but my dr is maybe 4sqm with a slanted ceiling, so what can I do? :(
I am glad and grateful to have a permanent dr at all...

Thinking that I received a Laborator with a condenser head last year (table included), it would be really nice to have the colour one, too (as well as the lens, since my longest one is 150mm)!! But Berlin is far, far from here... :(

I will be glad if the enlarger will be picked up by someone who is really passionate about analog photography and who really uses it, instead of taking it and tearing it apart to sell the pieces. That's why I posted it here at apug instead of the well-known online bidding platform.

Yes, it breaks my heart as I would have loved to use it myself, but since I only need 4x5''max and print not larger than 30x40cm, my comparatively small-ish Laborator 1000 does the job quite well *and* fits in my small darkroom.

So, if it arrives in good and loving hands, I feel good about it.

That's understandable. I hope someone will get it and makes some great prints. Something like this deserves to be used.

Thank you, everyone. I am already in contact with an interested person from Berlin who is likely to pick it up. Stefan is next in case the first person does not take it.

Thomas, thanks for the tip.

Stefan, pm replied to.
