    Be sure to clean the condenser and have the Rod pulled up fully for long bulbs, then push down for short neck ones.

    The may be a bulb problem if the filament is not centered. My last bulb order was from Mexico manufacture, Velco or Vico from B&H, and who knows what their QC is. I have not used any so far.

    I assure you with a proper bulb and set up properly, no burning is necessary for an even print. Mine is set up with a darkroom exposure meter in each corner . You can not eyeball it.

    Thanks Ronald, good to be reassured that even lighting can be achieved. The bulbs I have are made by Dr. Fischer Group, no Idea if they're high quality, certainly not cheap (about $15). I'm measuring light levels with the meter of the Heiland Controller (i've checked the calibration, so the probe is fine). I'll try it again next week.
