    durst 138s manual please

    Am in need a readable owner's manual for a durst 138s b/w enlarger. I found a link online but it's too hard to read. So someone have a spare manual or a copy I'd love to borrow it.

    Much appreciated any help.

    ps. particularly on how to adjust the lamp housing tilt. Also, am looking a filter drawer for it if anyone has one.

    Welcome to Apug.

    You don't mention what link you found that was not readable. This may repeat that.

    I have found the manuals at this link very readable and useful.

    The one you want is at:

    http://www.durst-pro-usa.com/resources.php

    Look under “Appendix: PDF Files Tank”

    I would encourage you to look around the library because there are many useful tutorials and manuals there.

    Thanks for answering. That's the same link other than a french site that I could google. Could be my old age, I have a hard time to read. The first couple pages are readable. Dont think local small library has anything related to this enlarger model.

    It would be great if someone can post a html/text version manual online. The worse case, one can create in MS Word by hand I guess.

    I found how to adjust tilt. Turn one knob to 'L' all the way the loosen another knob and apply rotation force (slowly). tighten both knobs. still, nice to have a manual handy.

    I don't mean to insult you. I am 72, wearing trifocals and can see it quite well on my new monitor. Could it be your computer screen?

    John, that's good for you. My 20/20 is not working that well these days. I will look out for a real manual ...maybe one day. For now, I will get by. Btw, I can see at 72 years young you are strong to carry that 20x24 around mountains...is that a 600mm lens?

    Sorry about the eyes.

    That is just a small 7x17 pocket camera that I carry in a baby jogger. My mountain has to have trails or plateaus on it for the three wheeled buggy. The lens is a 250mm wide field Ektar. I have a 600mm Fuji as the longest lens this camera will take, but it doesn’t look as dramatic for the Avatar photo.

    I just posted a different copy of the Durst 138S manual, as well as the service manual here.
