    Enlarger: Minox

    The smallest large-format enlarger ever made . 16mm Minox B&W. Originally used by an academic at Sydney University. Date of manufacture not known. Type 2201 Serial #4805. Set up for 220v. Needs re-wiring, otherwise in excellent condition. Now located in Tasmania. I'll ascertain freight costs for folks living elsewhere.

    How much with freight to the Big Island? When you sat it needs rewiring, how bad is it and does it have the original lens?

    Hello Tony,
    the wiring is old rubber-sheathed stuff, certainly not useable as is. AgX is correct, the aperture in the glassless neg carrier is 7.7 x 10.7mm. Lens mount is a brilliant 3-lobe bayonet lock. Surprisingly, no iris and no other ID that I can see on the lens, or fungus etc.

    The lamphouse is tight-fitting. There's a small release button(?) at the back but I hesitate to put any great pressure on it, so I don't yet know what's inside. Perhaps AgX can tell us more about this brilliant piece of Teutonic engineering, the lens and how to remove the lamphouse.

    In the meantime I'll shoot some close-ups and ascertain freight. We'll be heading up your way later this year, so I could bring it with us( which I couldn't do with the other enlarger we are selling - a floor standing 5x7 Devere)

    I forgot to answer about that lens:

    The enlarger lens is the same as the taking lens in the camera of the same period, but with different barrel of course.

    Thank you AgX. In what year would this enlarger have been built ?
