    Durst U70 advice wanted.

    I've been looking for instructions/manual for this enlarger. Does anyone know of a source (preferably UK)?

    The questions I have are what is the removable panel for in the front of the head above the condenser?

    Is the drawer in the side of the head, below the bulb and above the condenser, for contrast filters?

    What is the red scale with the sliding door below the neg carrier in the front of the head for?

    How does the auto-focus work? (I know it is a system for holding focus while raising or lowering the head, but how does it work?)

    As a side note, while I have been searching for information I came across this series of video tutorials:

    According to this (page 6/7) your enlarger was built somewhere between 1947 and 1967. Durst sells manuals online (pdf), but yours is not included in the list. Good luck.

    I've got a manual of the U70, but I think it's only in french, have to check this out.
    Q n°1 ?
    Q N°2=Yes 12x12 cm filters!
    Q N°3= Enlargement scale of your negative
    Q N°4= With a spring fixed at the top of the columm
    Hope this will help

    The manual is in 5 languages( yes, there is an english part ) if you want a copy of it let me know.
    Q N°1= if you use the enlarger as a camera for copying documents you'll have to fit in a mirror, a copying cassette with ground glass and take out the plate to focus
    Good luck, its a very nice enlarger and easy to use

    Thank you both for your replies.

    Albert, thank you very much for your offer, I would very much be interested in a copy of the manual! Maybe just a scan of the relevant pages would be useful.

    Hi Albert, I'm currently starting restore an old Durst U70 enlarger. I would really appreciate a copy of the manual as well.
    Is there any chance I can get one? Of course, if this involves making photocopies, I woul like to pay for the job.

    Thanks
