    I'm currently using four of them. I have a basic ole Omega D 4x5 with colorhead for small b&w work, then a Durst hi-output 8x10 coldlight unit,
    then my two "hotrods": a 5x7 Durst with custom additive colorhead for critical film work, and "Ole Zeke": a 13 ft tall additive 8x10 color printer
    which I built from the ground up - maybe one of the best enlargers on earth for color quality, and built to withstand an earthquake; but has
    its idiosyncrasies in the electronics. Thinking of adding another 8x10 Durst dedicated to dye transfer printing once I can clear a path to install it.

    Only one, an Omega E6 XL (5x7) diffusion cold light which has been used for graded b/w papers. Recently finished a DIY LED light source and replaced the diffuser (had yellowed with age). I've completed the illumination uniformity tests (with and w/o) each of my four lenses and measured their corner falloffs at various apertures. Also completed step tablet tests for response to each Ilford under-lens filters with MGIV paper/developer. Included a 47B tri-color gel filter test; Ilford #5 filter does as well, but without the longer exposure. Everything is GO now. 8x10 negs will continue to be contact printed.

    Right now I use an ancient and battered Omega D2 with an Aristo VC54 cold light head. Thinking of turning my D2 into a source of parts for several other D2s at the school darkroom (that need help), and moving the Aristo over to a Beseler 45V-XL that also belongs to the school. I just need to find the proper adapter ring for the head.

    Durst M600 (6x6). Easy to pack and store away.

    In the works for the under construction darkroom are: Omega D5 (color head) and Durst L1000 (condenser). This will let me print bigger than 6x6 negs up to 4x5. Just have to get the darkroom finished so I can use them.

    An Omega D6 with an Ilford Multigrade 400 head plus a couple of lens turrets.

    If I had the room, I would also set up the Beseler 67C with dichroic head I have in storage.

    Plus lots and lots of related fiddly bits for both of them.

    I have only one enlarger setup now, a LPL 670 DXL, its the dichroic model with the longer focusing column, I have also installed the fine focusing knob. Its used together with a pair of the glass universal negative carriers with AN glass top, one with the vanes, the other with them removed to print 6x9.

    I have a besseler 67XL in storage, was my older enlarger as is a backup, but without baseboard now. I also have an old Durst 4x5 Pro I picked up, but I cant find enough space to set it up, its also missing its baseboard.

    I have a Beseler 23CIII and 45MX. I tend to use the 45MX only for 4x5 or to expose my few remaining T55 sheets (stick a slide in the elarger, turn off all the lights, etc..). I've had the 23CIII longer and am used to it.

    I have a Beseler 45M, an Omega DII, and a Leica V35.

    The Beseler has the condensor head, the Omega has a Super Dichro II on it, and the V35 has the color head. I just got the V35, but am really looking forward to using it...
