    help with omega D2 filtration

    my filter wheels/dials on my D2 enlarger (color) are very stiff and hard to turn. This is a real pain when doing split grade printing.

    Any suggestions on repairing this?

    Thanks!

    Dear Dorothy,

    See if you can move the filter carriers with a finger towards the rear of the unit, they should move smoothly against the force of a spring. I had a problem in this area once and some careful cleaning solved the problem. If it's the wheel/counter assembly, a trip to ebay would probably be cheaper and easier unless you have a handy friend.

    Good luck,

    well I managed to tear it apart to see if I could clean it. I got it back together, however... now the numbers are totally off. Fortunately I have the manual so *maybe* I can get it back to zero! Yikes, right on schedule for a print request

    I admire your "derring do". Does it move more easily now?

    Yes it does - at least it's better - not perfect though. It slipped out of the gear the first time through but it was only a 4x5 test strip - thank goodness! So I tightened up the screw underneath after resetting everything, and compared test samples. They look the same so I guess I did ok. I wish there were an easier way (like a new enlarger) but not at this point in time.

    Thanks,
    Dorothy
