    Leitz V35 enlarger questions

    Just picked up a V35 (that was heading to landfill...) It works, and am currently giving it a clean. I've found a French manual and a few informative sites but I can't see how to remove the lens. I am assuming it's just a simple screw mount, but am reluctant to force anything yet ;-) Can some one please confirm the best way to remove the lens?

    Also, I only print B&W but there's a colour head. I am assuming you can still use that for B&W but I just need to find the appropriate amounts to dial in that match equiv multigrade filters?

    Thanks very much.

    Yes it is the standard 39mm screw thread mount so it should come apart easily.

    I don't know about any multigrade filters other than those for Ilford and Kentmere (which are the same) but in each box/packet of paper made by them is a leaflet giving these values in table form.

    If it has the 40mm enlarging lens check it carefully because these were prone to fungus.

    Thanks for that - seems very stiff... Sorry for the stupid question but that's just anticlockwise to remove right?

    Oops - now I seem to have removed the entire lens housing and can't get it back on... ;-) Doh! I don't suppose anyone knows where an English manual might reside? Thanks. I wouldn't normally have 'played around' but the lens certainly seems like it needs a good clean.
