    Wall mounting Beseler MCRX?

    I'm tired of having my 16x20 easel bump into the enlarger support so I thought I'd try to devise a wall mount. Has anyone done this? how did it work? I'm handy with tools and wood so I'm hesitant to buy the "official" Beseler model. Has anyone made a wall mount from scratch for this enlarger?

    Different model but same idea.

    I've been really happy with it, especially the ability to slide the enlarger head forward and back as well as up and down.

    I have both my Beseler and Omega enlargers on a 8"x2"x6' board that sits above the working area. I did this for your reason and to control vibrations.

    Different enlarger as well...

    I have a Beseler VXL chasis that I wall mounted myself. I built a bracket from laminated plywood (3/4" x 2 = 1 1/2" thick)

    Think of it as a large L brack with 3 triangle supports within (one at each side and one in the middle). I then bolted it to anchors I installed in the concrete block of my basement wall. Very solid and all made from scrap furniture plywood pieces I had kicking around - just a few bolts and anchors.
