I have an Omega ProLab 4x5 enlarger. Overall I'm happy with it. I've tried using levels and whatever else I have in the house to get it fairly well aligned. I got most of it right.
Now to the problem. The lens turret on this enlarger only seems to accept the original cheap lenses. They're not bad, but I'd like to stick my Nikkor 50mm and Schneider Componon 80mm on the turret somehow, or they just collect dust, and deprive me of extracting the maximum out of the prints.
However, when I mount these lenses onto the little flanges and put them back in, the turret will not accept them because the backwards extended lens barrels get in the way. Any idea what can be done about this?
A friend just recently made me an offer for a Beseler 45 and I'm very, very tempted. But I also don't want to go through the whole set-up procedure again... Throw me a bone if you have it! Please with sugar on top.
