    Changing the lens on my enlarger?

    I have an enlarger that seems to be one that nobody is very familiar with.
    Currently it has a Schneider 50mm camera lens on it and the lens board has a lens type mount I'm guessing like the Old Kodak camera that this lens originally came with.

    If I want to put a 105mm lens for 6x7 MF negatives where to I find a lens board or how would I mount a lens that had 39mm threads?

    We really need to know what enlarger you have! It is very likely that an interchangeable lens board is available, if not a lens board that is too big can be cut down fairly easily, thus avoiding the relatively hard job of cutting a 39 mm thread!

    It is a Burleigh Brooks 670, made in Japan I think by Lucky. It is a very well made heavily constructed piece of equipment.

    I am not sure why the previous user Put the Schneider f/1.9 50mm lens on it??? I could take a photo to post but it would have to be a digital shot for me to post it.

    Um, that's OK.

    Is the lens a screw mount? It's possible (especially if this is a Lucky,) that the mount is 39mm "leica" type. You can probably simply unscrew the 50mm and screw in any other lens with a 39mm mount.

    What you need to know is whether the Burleigh Brooks enlargers use a proprietary lens board, or whether the lens boards are compatible with those of a more common make of enlarger. For your sake, I hope it's the latter, because I've never seen a Burleigh Brooks lens board on eBay ever. In fact, I didn't know there was such a thing until you mentioned it. If it will take Beseler or Omega lens boards, you can breathe a sigh of relief and easily obtain a new lens board for the 105mm lens. Otherwise you might be stuck with one lens board and with screwing and unscrewing the lenses whenever you want to change formats, which would be a pain in the ass (but doable).

    If a lens is advertised "without the ring" are they talking about the 39mm mounting ring?

    The ring is to use when the lens board has no threads, just a hole.
