    Does the enlarger still work without the timer? I know US mains sockets work differently to ours in the UK, but the spur fuse might have gone and we have fuses in the plug you put in the wall. If you do that might have gone.

    Hi All,

    Yes, I've emailed RH Designs, and Richard answered promptly. There is a second fuse inside the unit that very rarely blows. Mine did. Hopefully replacing it will be all that's needed to get it running again.

    I've been using the enlarger with a De-Vere timer in the meantime, and that seems to be ok, although it's a pain. I've worked out the F-stop timing to do test strips, but it's not fun. The easel is mounted on a wall, and the timer is on the enlarger a step away. That means that I can't simply lay the cardboard on the easel when I change times. I'll have to make some reference marks on the easel. Plus, I really miss having a footswitch!

    I don't think I'm going to risk my StopClock with the big De-Vere again.

    Remember the old rule of electronics: "A $2.79 transistor will always protect a three cent fuse by blowing first." (okay, it's an old rule, fuses aren't that cheap any more)
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Very true Donald, I have seen this rule in effect many times. Hopefully it is not a "solder in" type fuse.
