    Basically you're OK. Just unscrew the old lens from the board and screw in the new lens. Having only one ring is fine. EL-Nikkor f/2.8. There is the f/4 version but there is not f/1.4 version.

    You're good to go, then.
    A 105 is overkill for 6x7; but I am from a generation taught by the old guys that an enlarging lens slightly longer than necessary for coverage is better sharpness and more even coverage. Whether that is true or not, that is what I do. I have 105 5.6 Nikkor, and a 100 mm VHE Vivitar 5.6, which is a rebadged Schneider Componon. Both give me excellent images with 6x7. I am also very conservative (whether right or not) and opted for slower 6 element lenses as above.
    Given a choice between spending your hard-earned golden grickles on a better enlarging lens or a better camera lens, of course, buy the best camera lens you can. Enlarging lenses can wait, as long as you have the negs.
    At this juncture, a schlock 90, 100, or 105 will at least give more even coverage than the 50 mm you removed-- when printing 6x7 negs.

    Everything went better than I expected!! I was able to get familiar with how the equipment worked, the chemical process etc. and I got what I feel are three nice prints. Actually all of the prints turned out good but I realized that as another APUG person had told me a couple of my negatives were too dense and produced a very overexposed looking print.
    WOW it was so much fun!! Much more fun than sitting in front of the computer using Photoshop.

    Did you simply try to print those overexposed negatives darker by using longer exposure time or larger aperture?

    Not yet Chan. I was going to ask a new question, "How to print an over developed negative."
    Also the information that you sent me was extremely helpful in making these first prints.
