    Dejur condenser enlarger model to fit DeJur Koolite cold light head

    Years ago I found a DeJur Koolite cold light head at a fleamarket. I now have a need of a 4x5 enlarger and I'm trying to figure out what DeJur condenser models this would fit. Then I can begin a search for the model I need. Anybody know?

    I believe it's big enough to be 4x5. I'll measure it and get some pics of it, maybe you can tell easier that way.

    Here's a couple of shots. It's a little beat up, but it works fine. The inside diameter of the head is approximately 5 13/16". The nameplate on the front says 'Versatile Koolite Model I-II'. Does this fit the 4x5 Versatile Professional?

    Dang. I already have an Omega C760XL that I can print medium format with. I need a 4x5 enlarger now.

    Better off not looking for a particular brand enlarger in 4x5. Much better to look for what you can find locally. Shipping on big enlargers is horrendous. Years back I bought a DeJur off eBay, arrived poorly packed with broken castings, turned out the brass roller was worn to the point where the enlarger could not be aligned. That one was a pre-war one, steel, cast iron, brass, and glass and weighed over 50 pounds. Shipping is three times as high now than it was back then. Hence my suggestion that you look for an enlarger within reasonable driving distance.

    I agree. Just looking on Craig's List there are great deals on darkroom equipment. People are selling off stuff like crazy at give away prices. I've seen Beseler and Omega 4x5 enlargers for well under $200, some as low as $100 with timers, cold light heads and other stuff.
