If you decide to go with extension tubes for a 39mm mount lens, then you could look on that auction site for extension tubes for the early Former Soviet union slr's. There would be no need to get something made specially by the manufacturer of your enlarger costing four times the price....

To enlarge a 6x6 or 6x7 Neg you need a 80mm enlarging lens to cover all the way out to the corners.

So you have 3 choices
1) Print larger paper sizes
2) Buy a 60mm WA Lens & still need to go to slightly larger paper sizes
3) Find some 39mm extension tubes or sacrifice one or two of the lens mounting cups and build yourself your own bellows extension tube - if you do this be careful to avoid vignetting in the corners
I have a Kaiser V - they are a nice enlarger - but I have never tried to print anything smaller than 10x8 with mine
