    It sits on the negative stage, but if it's slightly bent it won't matter. It will give you a smooth surface for the negative carrier to sit. The screws on the side provide a pressure fit against the frame of the enlarger.

    You can have any machine shop with a decent milling machine, or in this day and age, more likely a CNC rig, fabricate you something precise out of thick aluminum plate. If you only have a woodworking drill press etc in your own shop, it is easier to use highly reinforced types of phenolic like Garolite. But it's pretty damn easy to improve upon the original Omega platforms. Durst is a harder act to follow.

    Seriously, I am not saying you need to buy mine, but in ten years, I could have found you 15-20 for anywhere from $50 to free. And, yes, some people want $500 for them, but they don't sell. You are going to go to a lot of trouble, and just as much expense to try and repair the thing as just getting another chassis - if not a whole enlarger. Just my opinion ...
    Gotta agree with David here. There was a guy in greenville who had four of these he had pulled out of a lab, put them on craigslist and couldn't get rid of them. They even had Ilford 500 MG heads. I thought about driving to greenville just to grab the heads. I think he finally junked them. I probably see at least one if these every two months popping up locally. I cant believe you cant find one. Its so sad that no one wants this stuff anymore.
