    Dan you're always an inspiration.

    The Dejour has geared movements, I think I will hang onto it for now, just in case someday I want to do something with it, and it's my best friends grandfathers who's now passed so I'll hang onto it.

    I've now spoken to the APUGer who's messaged me privately, and offered the Omega D2 enlarger. I'm most likely picking it up tomorrow. Very excited!

    Now I just need that darn Toyo... Lol

    My most used enlarger for the past 15 years has been a 4x5 DeJur Versatile Professional that came with a condenser head. I later acquired a florescent head for it, but use the condenser head. With an improvised 3.5 inch spacer between the negative carrier and the condenser, and a lens board recessed 1.75 inches, it also works fine for 35mm. The 135mm DeJur lens, apparently a Tessar formula, performs well. The DeJur does lack a filter drawer.

    Actually a set of filters and drawer were attached but ironically the plastic had accumulated mold, where the bellows look clean-ish in comparison, it's strange but true. The plastic looked like the top of a jar of jelly after the sugar all rises to the top.

    That could probably be dealt with using a bunch of denatured alcohol or rubbing alcohol.

    After dealing with the must in other plastic things, I know from experience that the only way to get out even the light must smell is 2 bleach baths, 3 days in the sun, and 2 power scrub cycles in the dish washer... So I doubt this mold encrusted plastic can ever be fully cleaned... Lol

    I'll just buy new ones, plus for now I'm starting with B&W only.
