    Meopta Opemus Enlarger info

    Hi All, I purchased a Meopta Opemus 6X6 enlarger after hearing good things about it on this and other forums. Is there someone in the U.S. that sells parts, manuals, bulbs ect. for this enlarger? I really don't know anything about this machine, I don't know what bulb it takes, or how to change lenses.
    I have made arrangements with an APUGer in Norway to purchase a negative carrier, so hope to be able to start making prints soon.
    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,
    I own an Opemus 6. I would highly recommend purchasing a fine focusing control adaptor (if one isn't installed already)
    Fine Focusing Control as listed on [color=#800080]http://www.meopta.co.uk/accessories.html[/color]

    They make focussing much easier.

    Regarding a US distributor, apparently there are 164 in the US ! Not all of them would carry photographic enlarger parts since Meopta make other things like sports optics as well.

    Thanks Peter, I've checked the U.S. distributors and they are all dealers for rifle scopes. If I can't locate what I need from APUG members I will have to look for a dealer across the pond.
