    Elwood enlarger sizes

    I ask more questions than I answer here but I need more help
    Elwood for sale locally
    Seller states "kodak enlarger made by elwood" but I don't think that ever happened

    What sizes did Elwood make? I know 4x5/5x7/8x10
    Did they make medium format, too?

    Seller says it's about 36 or so inches from baseboard to top of column
    Said was 5x7 or so upon taking off dome at top but I'm not sure he was measuring carrier opening ...maybe he measured the diameter of the light dome fixture?

    I'll attach the photo. Doesn't appear that big, though. Counting the foundation blocks gives about the correct height and the bellows seem 1/2 a brick so perhaps it is 5x7 or 4x5
    I don't know the Elwood intimately enough to be sure
    He lives a distance away so I can't go right away ..I have to go pick up a snow fence right now, anyway.

    SS,

    It looks like a 4 x 5....I have a 5 x 7 and it is configured a bit differently...I like the Elwoods, simple and functional and go on forever and ever amen.

    A 1955 Elwood catalog lists enlargers from 35mm and 6x6cm to 10 x 10 inch. Yours appears to be older, and using more wood. The height from baseboard of the smallest 4x5 & 5x7 listed was about 5'. Mine had to sit on the floor to clear a low ceiling.

    I had a 6x6 Elwood given to me a couple of years ago. I passed it on to someone from APUG.
