The Pro-Lab enlarger I recently installed in my darkroom has a light leak where the condenser lands on the neg carrier. What, in your opinion, is the best method for curing this without changing the distance between the condenser lens and the neg surface?
I was thinking of using some type of self adhesive foam (like weather sealing tape) on the outside of the condenser's metal housing, so that when it's lowered onto the neg carrier, the little 'lip' of foam or rubber lays against the carrier and thus contains the light inside, effectively without changing the distance between the carrier and the actual condenser lens. Clear as mud? Think that would work?
