    You need different lens mounts. There are mounts made for this enlarger (and turret) that add about a half inch in length and eliminate the problem you are describing. You don't need to get a different enlarger, or have anything custom made. They are on the auction site frequentely. The other alternative is to replace the turret with the single slide in lens mount, and then any lens will screw in with no problem.

    This pix show my turret with 3 EL nikkors - the 63mm, an 80mm and a 105mm. The 80mm is an older one and mounts on a flat board, but the 63 and the 105 require the extended "board". The pic in the middle is the single mount. It slides in just like the turret and you can put any lens/mount on it.

    Hope this helps.

    David,

    that's really good advice! I'll have to look into this. Is the part officially called a 'turret mount'? In case I need to fish around for one online.

    Thank you!

    I don't think it's actually called a "turret" mount, it's just for lenses that stick out at the back, and so need more clearance. I should have added that these are not threaded, so you'll also need a retaining ring. But again, none of this is exotic. They're available. A little patience and research and you'll turn them up. When I got my D5, I spent a good bit of time collecting all of the mounts, carriers, and other do-dads I either needed or wanted, but I eventually got them all. Good luck!

    They are called 'turret extension plates' and they are still available new. Here's one for a standard Leica thread from Calumet:

    Yep, that's it. Ok, I stand corrected on the nomenclature. But $70! Seriously - a little patience on the 'bay and 1 will turn up for $5-10!

    I have little doubt. In fact, I looked there before I posted the new ones.

    Best of luck!
