Am I happy bunny or what! The Devere 504 enlarger with Dichroic head that I won on Ebay arrived this morning. I've checked it out and it all seems to be OK. The timer doesn't work properly: the focus and power buttons work fine, but the 'expose' button doesn't do anything. I'm pretty certain it's a switch problem. I'm not that bothered as as far as I was concerned, it was a freebie anyway. I've just ordered the devere cable for my Stopclock pro from RH designs.
All I need to do now is remodel my darkroom then install it in its new home.
I do have a quick question. Is it worthwhile getting hold of the glass negative neg carriers? I would imagine that film flatness isn't a problem with 4x5 or even MF, but what about 35mm? I would imagine that it may help getting sharper prints under glass.
Any hints / tips on getting the best out of this behomoth will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
