    That looks just like the one we used to have at work. When we moved to a new building we left it behind and just took the two lenses which, if I remember correctly, were both Nikon and huge. I wonder where they are now- I may do a bit of searching today!

    Ours was used for reducing artwork done at twice or four times full size down to the correct size for screen printing.

    Seems to me you could just lay your ulf neg on the illuminated copy board and put a piece of print paper in the film back and fire away. Kinda backassward of the way you usually think of an enlarger but it works.
    A vertical paper holder can be made to hold a sheet furthur behind the camera for making even bigger prints than the film back can hold.

    Yes, but it wouldn't be trivial.

    You'd need to rig up a light source that would take the place of the back. I'd think a bank of florescents would give the best coverage. And you'd need to seperate the bellows from the current lens board, fabricate a negative stage and add a bellows between the neg stage and the lens board.

    That camera is not very old.

    When I said it only needed TLC to become an enlarger... Well, around here that stands for Tons of Loot and Cash...
