    Durst cold light power source

    Whilst rummaging through a disused darkroom I came across a Durst Laborator cold light head. Unfortunately the power source was not with it. I have two questions:
    1, how can I check it to see if it still functional before I invest any time or money on it?
    2, assuming it is ok where can I obtain a suitable power pack at a reasonable price?
    I live in the back of beyond so all dealing would have to be by post.
    I've attached a photo for identification.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I guess that makes you a Laborator Retriever. Good luck, dawg.

    The Durst Lacoli I sold on ebay had an aristo power supply. You don't have the condensers?

    Keep looking and asking as you did here, the squeaky wheel gets the grease as an Admiral once told me. The more you look the better the chance you will find one or an alternative. Good luck.
