    If one likes those soviet out-of-the-suitcase enlargers (Kodak too once offered something of that kind), the Durst Magico sure is an interisting design. (I never ever saw one for real.)

    The Meopta Opemus 6 is reasonably compact and comes down easily. It's pretty solidly built and will do up to 6 x 6. They are pretty common here in the UK but I don't know about Canada.

    I have a Federal 296 that's just like that, packs away in a metal suitcase and handles up to 6x9 negatives. It's on page 2 and 3 here: http://www.jollinger.com/photo/cam-c...0295%20296.pdf

    Give some thought to developing your prints in a print drum on a rotary base. That would be perfect for such a small space.

    Matt,
    I agree that am M600 will be your best betbut ,it doesn't do 4x5only some MF. still great quality for a reasonable price in a relatively small package.To me it looks tiny,coming from an L1200,which I adored but had to give up due to a move. Some of your other issues are highly polarized among darkroom workers.So, you must trust someone's subjective opinion oor find out for yourself. I prefer glas negative carriers because,, they are more likely to guaranty negative flatness.Newton rings can be prevented withanti-Newton glass on the top and dust is merely a cleanliness issue,also controllable with good practice and technique.

    all the best
    Regards

    This is a long way away for you, but it would be worth considering if you could get it a bit cheaper: http://toronto.en.craigslist.ca/tor/pho/4321890324.html

    Ralph, as much as I'd like to be able to print 4x5s, I simply don't see that happening with the space constraints. Similarly, my goal is to make 11x14 enlargments if possible, although I'll survive if 8x10s are the biggest I can do.

    Matt, the is the exact type of kit I'm hoping to find locally.

    I second the idea of rotary processing-- a set of 11x14s takes up a MASSIVE amount of space, even stacked, in comparison to a drum for processing.... Be aware that you shouldn't do anything bigger than 8x10 in a drum if you use FB.

    The Jobo Duolab is the ideal solution when compact size, rotational processing and RA-4 are concerned.
    May be an outcome for b&w paper processing too.

    I've made my Omega D-II 4x5" enlarger work in a tiny space. The small baseboard is a big factor. I had it on a rolling typewriter table that slipped into a narrow space over the commode. The baseboard was larger than the table, but I put a second set of rubber feet on the bottom, lower than the original ones, to match the footprint of the table. I may be going back to that arrangement in the next darkroom, though the space is larger.
