    Durst 139.
    I have also a nice 6x7 LPL but I will remove it from the darkroom soon to gain more space.

    I am currently in my final semester at Hampshire College, where I use a Beseler 45m with an Aristo VCL4500 head and a Metrolux II timer.

    Back home, I have an Omega B22 and a Beseler 23CII. Neither is set up at the moment, as I don't actually have my own darkroom. My plan is to eventually acquire a 45m for myself and build an led head for it. For the little Beseler, I will probably buy a garden variety cold light.

    DeVere 504 with Ilford 500 light for over a decade, and a new LPL 7452 with VCCE on its way, hope to use both.

    GEM 504 cold light before that. Krokus about 30 years ago.

    I use the Besler 23C II dual Dichro 23dga

    Just upgraded from an old Omega C-700 to the Besler 23CII. I was fortunate enough to score that and a bunch of accessories to boot.

    My first enlarger was a Vivitar 356 when it was new, it was all plastic but worked well for me. Much later I picked up a Vivitar VI which worked the same but was built a little more solid. Used what they called a light pipe and adjustable condenser. In the Vivitar VI time frame, I added a Patterson PCS. I ended up setting the PCS up for 35mm and the Vivitar for 6x6/6x7. Both now are sadly collecting dust in hopes that I can build a darkroom again.

    I have an Omega B600 with an Aristo (Fred Picker) head, 75mm El Nikkor. A Beseler 45M***** enlarger with a computer head and a 45 Aristo cold light, all carriers from 35 to 4x5 including 35&120 Negatranses + the wonderful Negaflat
    and all format lenses. I have a Durst 138 with a custom diffusion head built by master engineer. I have a glass carrier that is new, it also takes 5" wide roll film. Beautifully machined speciality carrier. It is very heavy and built to last many lifetimes. There is a three lens turret and I have a Zipper glassless 5x7 negative carrier also. It is so rare that I have only seem one other. I bought that one too. I have lenses to fit it in any format needed. I have two Saunder easels: an 11x14 and a 16x20 plus speed easels and three way. I have a Peak and a Micromega focusers. I use the Micromega. I finished aligning the Beseler today with the aligning tool made for it, thank you Gerald! I also aligned, or should I say checked the alignment of the Durst with a laser align. It was right on. Timers, dusters, dodging and burning tools, and the rest of the essentials. Thomas safelight. GFI dedicated outlets on a Sola CVA transformer. And finally I sent my K375 Intellifaucet in to Hass manufacturing for a rebuild, evaluation, repair, and a new power supply.

    I'm going to need two focussing extensions, one for each enlarger. Any suggestions will be welcomed. Ready made or DIY. It's not a lot of work, it's a damn obsession!

    When this is all set up I'm returning to Carbon Transfer printing. The only other decision is a coffee maker or espresso machine. Or in Vaughn's case hot water for the tea! Any others out there around 62 years old? What the hell happened?
