    Possibly used for making reductions/small prints?

    Murray et al,

    I have some cones and condensors lying around that I saved before trashing my wrecked DII. Maybe you can do something with those?

    Shipping to the US will not be cheap: heavy glass!

    Greetings,
    G

    I've used an omega auxillary bellows before for this purprose. It works well if you can find it. I found mine for $5 at a camera store but honestly i'm not sure if it's omega D or beseler. I just found a way to 'make it fit'. Used two pieces of plastic with screws to hold it in.

    I've seen homemade ones with a quaker oats can, pvc pipe painted black, even a wooden box. The trick is finding a way to attach it to a flat lensboard.

    Turns out it was just wild misalignment. What a pain to realign these things are!

    Harry sells a set of instructions and a tool over at classic-enlargers.com. It is exceedingly complicated to get it right if you don't know the order to go in and how each adjustment works. I normally just figure out stuff like this by trial and error, but D2V proved impossible for me to get right quickly, so I ordered the instructions. Very, very helpful.

    Thanks,

    Will

    Will-

    Thanks. Luckily, I had a couple days free and so managed to figure it out.
