    Here's a drawing from the assembly/service instructions that I posted a while back:

    The 'fastener' shown below the baseboard is a T-nut with threads to fit the cap screw. You'll need three of them. I don't know the thread size off the top of my head, but could check if you need that info. T-nuts may be available at your local hardware store. You need to drill a hole for the T-nut to fit into. The flange of the T-nut is on the bottom of the baseboard to keep the cap screw from pulling through the baseboard.

    Looks like you're all set, but in case not, I've mounted a Durst 1200 directly to a counter top for VCP. You need some reinforcement under the counter surface. For the VCP enlarger I built the reinforcement from plywood.
    Since I'm more or less local, I could come down and help, if you need.

    Regarding the counter top, if its the type that is like in a kitchen, Formica laminated to 3/4 partial board, it may not be safe enough. The bolts might pull through. If so, you could perhaps take a piece of 3/4" plywood on the underside and use longer bolts so it is using the plywood like a giant washer.

    Wall mounting would be an excellent idea.

    Thanks, I found that site, and asked over there, too!! I appreciate the input... and reinforcing it under the counter might be a good idea, too. Barry... I think I have someone nearby who can help, but I let you know!!

    Hmmm... heard from Harry on the classic enlarger site... turns out, I may have a D II that was sold as a D 2. Go figure? John... will PM you.

    Suzanne,

    The difference between D-II and D-2 (I have both) has to do with the vertical column and the way it mounts to the baseboard. D-II has a cast base block attached to the vertical pole and has a single bolt with a giant plastic head at the middle. This "thing" bolts to what appears to be a giant flange that bolts to the base plate.

    Please see THIS:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/tkamiya9/4307163021/

    you see a large black thing at the bottom? That's actually two pieces. Rotating part is at the very top and it's only about 1/2" thick. Rest is one piece cast block. You can see two bolts at the bottom and there are two more in the back.

    Also, D-2 has a hand crack for height adjustment. D-II does not. Since most parts are interchangeable, quite a bit of mixing has happened between the two.

    Is this what you have?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
