    It measured about 22x27 inches at the top of its column. The bellows had plenty of compression left for a shorter lens or floor projection for a larger projection.

    Dave, maybe time to think Horizontal, are you making an enlarger or sizing your space for one?

    If you've got an ELwood just rock that puppy into horizontal mode and project on either a sheet of steel or an easel hung on the wall!

    Actually all of the above, just getting the stats in order, Gary Beasley has a nice Elwood I just have nt been able to get arrangements to get it packed up and shipped. I am putting together a teaching studio and so far have been able to purchase or acquire for pick up, 3 D2 V Omegas, 2 Omega E 5 x 7's , several smaller Omegas for 35mm and medium format and a Bessler 45 M so to date all formats with the exception of 8 x 10, so that is the humble project.

    Wondered how far above the base board would the enlarger head have to be to make 16 x 20 and 20 x 24 prints. So would want the lens that required the least extention above the base board etc.

    Sounds good, I'm still frustrating over a 5x7 and/or 8x10. I don't want a rust bucket nor do I want a computer cnc run model. It's a physical fit and a pocket book fit. Maybe I will take the old 2D Kodak 8x10 camera and make an enlarger out of it. I have the cold lights and lenses for 5x7 and 8x10. I wonder how large of an enlargement can be made with a Beseler 8x10 conversion head on a Beseler 45m?

    Good Luck with your project,
    Curt

    And thanks for doing the math.
