    Opemus 3 Diffuser

    Hey all,
    I bought a Meopta Opemus 3 to do
    120 film exclusively, i have a durst to do 35mm
    Problem is, the frosted glass, i presume its the light diffuser
    has broke in 2, i tried to glue it back, but you can see the glue
    line when you try to enlarge a negative.
    I took it out and tried it, it still seems to work ok, is this glass
    a "Vital" part and if it is, where could i get another ?
    Thanks

    If the diffuser is square or rectangular you can make your own. The following procedure for making a focusing screen also makes a nice diffusion screen.

    Clear its £1.50 GBP and Satin (frosted) £4.50 GBP

    here is a pic of the satin glass, obviously it will be round for my purpose

    Buy some lens UV filter for 2-3$ and make it frosted (same as diffusion screen).

    At the risk of sounding stupid lol, how would lens UV filter work on an enlarger light diffuser ?
