So I'm going about getting a Durst 138 enlarger into working order. Most of the bits and pieces are there, which is great, and other than being a bit dusty it looks fine.
I've got a bunch of the latico condensors, and have a question: What is the difference between the 240T and a 240R condensors? How come the 85 is not followed by either T or R? Something to do with the coating?
I mainly print 6x6 negs - am I correct in thinking that the 200 goes on top and the 130 on the bottom? And how important is the correct wattage bulb?
Last question (I promise!): what is the purpose of being able to move the bulb side-to-side and back-and-forth on the apparatus inside the head? Is it to avoid hotspots? Is the best bet to center it and leave it at that?
I'm looking forward to making some bigger prints, that's for sure!
Thanks for your help,
