    Ilford multigrade filter position

    Hi,

    I have just bought a Philips PCS130 enlarger for very little money.
    Above the condensor there is a drawer which I suppose is the filter drawer.

    Is it OK to put the -Ilford multigrade above lens filters- in this drawer (above the condensor I mean) ?

    Thanx !

    That's what the drawer is for, so no problem.

    Just to be clear: Is this a PCS130 without the matching PCS150 light source? Every PCS130 I've seen for sale on eBay has come with a PCS150, which has a light source in the head with three MR11 halogen bulbs and an external control panel that lets you adjust the intensity of the red, green, and blue bulbs. If you've got the PCS150, then you'd probably do better to use it to adjust the contrast of your prints instead of using multigrade filters. Check the Yahoo Tri-One group for manuals and other help with these enlargers.

    If you've got only the PCS130, though, with a single screw-in bulb in the head, the filter drawer and multigrade filters are probably the way to go.
