    Thanks, all. Anyone know offhand if the 1b shares any components with the more common models (carriers, condensers, etc)?

    Got the 1b up and running. The condenser is almost the same the same as the Valoy I, but slightly narrower. Luckily the one that is in there is clean. It appears the AF mechanism is the same as what is described in the regular 1c manual. I did a quick and dirty alignment check by measuring the sides of the projected image, and it looks good. I'll run some test prints in the next few days to verify, as I don't have a grain focuser capable of off-axis work. The negative carrier from my Valoy works.

    What else should I check?
