    Actually it looks a bit like something from the props department at the BBC tv studios circa 1983 (Think Dr. Who/Daleks/k-9/etc). I almost expect it to grow wheels and start following Tom Baker around, saying blindingly obvious things in a very annoying faux cyber-voice.

    He'd have to be careful not to get his scarf sucked up by that big hose!

    What the heck is that for anyways? It looks like the hose attachments for the central vacuum system at my folks' place.

    I recently re-watched the entire run of Space: 1999, and I'm pretty sure I spotted several enlargers used as prop scientific instruments in various episodes. I couldn't identify any specific models, though. None of them talked, to the best of my recollection. ;-)

    I carefully studied the photgraph in the OP and noticed a really handy outdoor light at the top of the enlarger post ...

    Air is pulled from the lamp house, down the column and out the bottom of the column. For cooling. Stock lamp is 300 watts.

    Yeah, the hose as shown is disconnected. It goes in the periscope lookin port at the top of the hair dryer er.. lamphouse. Turned it on and some really interesting things came out. Don't know what they were, but a couple of them scurried away....
