    Look up in the thread Its a timer/stopclock. Works when you hit the button on the light-/colormeter.

    BTW. Lensboards for Durst's. I have only one (80/105mm) and might need one for 50mm. I guess it has to be recessed but are Lensboards for Durst models interchangeable? If not, which models through time do share lensboards.

    Hi Soeren,

    You've gotta search for a Durst Siriotub. I use that for my El Nikkor 50mm. I don't know wich lensboards are interchangeable.

    hope it helps a bit.

I've upgraded recently to a StopclockPro and Zonemaster and it has to be the best combo ever (IMO).Another good all rounder has to be the M605, totally irrelevant to the thread, I know, but worth mentioning
    Hi Blighty,
    How did you do that - bypassing the circuit in the head? I have problems with it too and would appreciate some helpful advice
    Thank you very much

    Hi Andreas,
    Bear in mind that my AC 707 is the dedicated black & white model i.e. it uses condensers rather than a diffuse light source as in the the colour version. If yours is the colour version, then I'm not too sure how you'd go about this. For my particular model, I simply cut the lead 6" below where it enters the light column and spliced on a mains lead. Any other wires left protruding were cut right back and their ends taped up. The original remote sensor was rather basic anyway and not a patch on my Zonemaster analyser.

    Bypass Durst AC707

    Six years ago I sold all my darkroom equipment. But I missed it, and I'm now putting a new darkroom together. I have a Durst AC 707 in good shape but would like to use it with a classical darkroom timer or even a stopclock. How do I connect this and/or bypass the built-in metering system? THNX
