Pros who do interiors sometimes gel the florescent tubes for color balance. You can do the same and leave the drawer for contrast control.
There was no shutter on that straight tube Omega

I didn't think to mention cold vs warm start tubes. I'd

when i bought my e4 a few years ago, i had a choice between the older e3 and the e4, i ended up staying away from the e3 because the shutter mechanism was incomplete or missing --- i learned this through conversations with harry taylor at classicenlargers ( and the folks that sold me the enlarger ) ...
there is info at http://classicenlargers.com >> help forum
if you just type in E-3 you won't get much, but if you go back 360 ( or more ) days you will get info on E-3s.
