    Really old zeiss-ikon enlarger (medium format)

    Hi everyone,
    i'm trying to find out wich enlarger i have. I found it in my grandparents home, it was used by my great grandfather. That's why i think it must be a really old one. Does someone have a catalogue where i can look at it?
    I will post as soon as possibile a picture of it. The enlarger is black and mount a Rodenstock 50mm, i guess.
    Thanks everybody,
    Elio

    The Zeiss Ikon (no hyphen) enlarger appears to be a Miraphot, which was first made in the 1930s. I have two of Zeiss Ikon enlargers -- for 35mm and for 120.

    I was going through some literature yesterday and came across a photo of what appears to be your enlarger. Send me your e-mail address through APUG, and I will scan it for you.

    Is this the enlarger with the Rodenstock lens?

    What numbers are on the Novar lens? I believe this is a medium format enlarger from the 1930s. It should keep its focus as you move the entire unit up or down to change the size of the enlarged image.

    It looks pre-WWII, I just went to look in a 1935 BJP Almanac but Zeiss don't list an enlarger. Try the Zeiss catalogues on Photoeccentric.

    Welcome to APUB BTW

    It does keep the focus. I like it.
    The lens says 1:6,3 F=13,5cm and the number is 1311425.

    @ Ian: thanks for the welcome! I can't find the Zeiss catalogues... actually, i can't find Photoeccentric neither.

    My mistake, it's CameraEccentric

    There's two Zeiss catalogues listed.

    Yes, that's a medium format enlarger, and still quite usable.

    The enlarger bulbs are no longer made, so I've converted my enlargers to use flourescent lights, which is fine for black and white.
