    3 in operation, a Beseler 45M, an Omega DII with Dichro II head, and a Durst 606. I have a Durst Laborator 1000 without a power supply for the Pavelle head it came with, that sits around being useless.

    The Beseler is great, condensers and glass carrier, and the Omega is used for diffusion b&w, and the mini Durst is for when I don't need to operate a big machine like my 4x5 enlargers.

    Ha! One more than I did yesterday. Put in a fleabay bid of £10 on a "looks complete but may not be working" durst m305 + philips timer and won it!! I'll see what it's like when I collect. I really only wanted the timer as a backup so the enlarger will probably be checked out/sorted if its any good and go back on.

    This thread is hilarious! All these enlargers that enthusiasts have.

    Of course, I'm no exception.

    I'm down to three enlargers.

    • Zone VI Type I with 35mm through 4x5, plus 6x17 negative carrier. I use this with a Beseler 45S head via the Zone VI Type I Beseler adapter. (Calumet sold me their last one.) Also have the Type II non-VC 8x10 head. It can be adapted to the Type I.

    • Zone VI Type II, 35mm through 8x10 w/both 5x7 and 8x10 VC Type II heads. Have the Zone VI Type II Beseler adapter (Calumet sold me their last one!) to use with the 45S. I was recently able to purchase the focus extension to this enlarger.

    • Omega D6 with Chromega II head. 35mm through 4x5 glassless and glass negative carriers. (Paid $60.)

    Except for the 4x5, for which I have an El Nikkor 150mm A, I have all Apo-Rodagon enlarging lenses for each format. This includes a 240mm Apo Rodagon for 8x10, which I believe to be one of the best enlarging lenses for a Type II 8x10. It's actually a process lens optimized at f16; it's sharper and has a wider field than the standard 240mm Rodagon lens.

    As of last fall, two enlargers. A Durst L1200 and a Durst L184. I've upgraded to 8x10 just so that I could use the L184! I managed to fit the Dursts + a JOBO ATL2000 + a 5 foot sink + film drying cabinet + film/paper fridge + a drymounting press in a 9' x 10' darkroom!! I didn't think it was possible when I first looked at the L184, but at a discount of 0$ I couldn't refuse What do they say about the mother of invention??

    Just the one Omega D2 with the variable condenser, and lenses and frames to cover me from 35mm to 4x5.

    I have experimented with working up two negatives at the same time on different enlargers. I have found it does not suit me well. Kind of like playing two games of chess. I can't really concentrate on both negatives and keep both dodging/burning sequences straight.

    One more donated to a young photographer in Toronto, which means I'm down to four. There I'll have to stay; two of those four are so... quaint that they are likely not going to inspire anyone to higher printing, and the last two... well, I use them.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    The Durst colour M305 is in the classifieds. Anybody who can make use of it can collect it (Chorley, UK). I don't want any money, just a promise of a small donation to the RNLI.

    Its all complete and working except there is no lens or lens panel. There is an instruction book. PM me if interested. After 5th April I will put it on ebay.
