    Dunco enlarger

    I just got a Dunco Modell II-66 CVC with at Focotar 40mm for free! A nice little enlarger for negatives up to 6x6. It has both colour and mulitigrade filters built in, a feature I've never seen before.

    Included was a Saunders 4-blade easel, a Peak grain magnifier, a large selection of trays up to 40x50 cm, and a lot of other bits and pieces.

    The previous owner had unsuccessfully tried to sell the equipment for a long time, before he gave up. Better to give it away than dumping it on the garbage tip, he told me.

    A good thing about this enlarger is that Dunco is still in business, so spare parts are readily available.

    Currently I use the bathroom as darkroom, and it works fairly well. We are planning to move to a house next year, because we need more space. One of the first things I will do then is to build a darkroom. I also have a very large IFF Ampliator 13x18 cm enlarger, and a nice Meopta Opemus IIa.

    It's funny that now that I have more equipment that I could ever dream of only a few years ago, it's still just as difficult to make good photographs. Quality equipment does help on the technical quality though.

    Nice. I found some pictures on the internet. Looks like a good enlarger. Is the column really offset to the corner of the baseboard?

    My enlarger has the standard 90 cm column, the larger offset column is an option I believe.

    The IFF Ampliator 13x18 is a fantastic and sturdy italian enlarger (IFF mean Industrie Fotografiche Firenze). Unfortunately, the IFF don't produce anymore the enlargers, from over 20 years.

    Yes, the IFF is a very sturdy and heavy piece of equipment. I'm currently restoring it, and it will hopefully be finished soon. SK Grimes is machining a part for me. I contacted IFF some time ago about their enlargers, and they told me that they don't offer any support, nor have any parts, for their enlargers.

    Sad destiny for the IFF enlarger owners and very bad commercial policy.
    Ciao.
