    When Glenn converted a 138 to 8X10 he mentioned completely removing the built in masking system, is this necessary, I like having it in there, it's designed extremely well? Also it dawned on me that an 8X10 negative could only be placed in landscape position with the masking system as the opening is 5X7. It isn't a problem for me to have the negative placed in one orientation but it might bother others.

    On converted models with the negative plane located at a greater distance from the mounting plate of the enlarger which is just above the masking blades, are there any problems focusing a 35mm negative, I haven't worked out any specifications for this. What I am getting at is can the 8x10 head with its height accommodate all formats or would a lower support riser be needed for smaller formats. I hope this make sense. I am planning on putting it into the place were I have my Beseler 45 in the darkroom. I don't need two or three enlargers as I have an Omega enlarger too that I bring in sometimes. I want to be a one enlarger user and with the NuArc unit I have to simplify the equipment.

    No, I have a complete enlarger minus the head and that one is in the VI, it isn't the one for me. Now that I have this machine called a NuArc I have plenty of time to figure out the head for the Durst 5x7 while I learn Carbon Transfer. I do have a shop and if properly motivated and provided with some good weather I might just come up with a really neat diffused color head of my own to use with VC black and white photo paper.

    I saw this for the first time a couple of days ago and have been thinking about it since. I still need a head for my Durst 5x7 and this looked interesting, the only caveat is I would still need a condenser head to hold the light without condensers.

    Has anyone converted their head to one of these light sources? I also noticed that they have a financing program, some down and a monthly payment for a year. They also explain why their light source is better than the Aristo cold light. I don't know I haven't seen or heard comparisons.
