    It looks fine. Just make sure the condenser lense is intact and the lift motor works well. Other problems are generally easy to fix. The head can be centered easily. It's one of the oldest version of the 45M series.

    ONE MORE QUESTION!

    One other question!

    Can a color head be put on this one?
    If so, which one?
    Thanks!

    There should be an upper and lower condenser in there.

    Good afternoon, Brian,

    Two condensers, with their convex surfaces facing each other.

    You should be able to put any Beseler 4x5 head on there. Except maybe the heads from the CB-7s but I doubt you'll find too many of those.

    The simplest color head available for the 45M is the Dichro 45s which is still available. The color computer head which is almost identical to the 45s but with digital readout is discontinued. The Beseler/Minolta 45A which uses strobe light as light source is also discontinued. The newest head available for the 45M is the univeral head which can be used as either a VC head or color head depending which controller you use. This one is primarily designed for the 45VXL but I think it would fit on the 45M.

    Now you have an enlarger that will do large format, what camera are you going to get to go with it?
    DIGITAL IS FOR THOSE AFRAID OF THE DARK.

    I bought this enlarger!
    I just couldn't pass it up!
    It was in great shape and everything was there and worked.
    It also has a 50mm lens(unsure what it was, it wasn't a name I was familiar with) and a 35mm negative carrier.

    I will mainly do 6x6,(Holga) but will do some 35mm.
    But I do a lot of diptychs where I print two adjacent frames, which is why I wanted a 4x5 enlarger.

    The only trouble is, I just don't know when I will first use it! I have the space and just need to build the darkroom, and fund it!

    Thanks for everyones advice and enthusiasm!

    The 6x6 negative carrier is cheap and plentiful, so you should not have a problem finding one - the 6x4.5 is another story all together. Have fun with your new enlarger.

    Ya what's up with that? It's almost the only carrier that didn't come with my enlarger.
