    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    The enlarger in question is the Chromega B.

    OK, good. I have both the Chromega B and a B22. (and a "D", but let's leave that out of this )

    They are essentially the same machine - one with a condensor head and one with the dicroic. Now, the Chromega B's were sold with different columns and baseboards. The ones with shorter columns usually had the 19.5" baseboard, but the later ones and ones with a taller column have a 26" baseboard. I have both.

    Since you said that your baseboard is 19.5, I just went and put the 35mm carrier in the B22 (with the 19 incher), mounted the 50mm lens, and got a sharp outline of the carrier at 8X11 inches with the head up so that the negative stage was about 20-21 inches above the baseboard.

    The image was right up to the edge of the baseboard, however!!

    If you have a very big easel, it may indeed hang over the edge.

    I know this doesn't solve your problem, but it may take some of the mystery out. The 19 inch baseboard is too short, and they (Omega) changed that in later models. Make a new baseboard, or mount the thing directly to the counter top.

    Good luck.

    I think the baseboard is the whole problem. Mine is homemade but about 26 inches or a little more deep.
