    Hi folks,

    Does anyone out there have an instruction sheet or manual for a Meograde head as fitted to a Meopta Magnifax 4a (B&W) enlarger ?.

    Try the Ilford datasheet, but that's for a Meopta colour head.

    But this is the Meograde description

    "Identical in size and specification to the Color 3 head, the Meograde head will replace the condenser head of any current Meopta black & white enlarger. A single filtration dial for contrast grades 0 to 5 (in half grade steps) has the advantage of retaining uniform exposure throughout the contrast range of VC black & white papers."

    I used to have a meograde head on a Opemus 5a. It's a fairly simple thing. Do you have a specific issue?

    I do David. Unfortunately it is not very informative as it is a joint document with the Color 3 head, and there is more info on that than the Meograde. In total, it is just three sides of A4.

    If you P.M me your email I will scan it and send it to you, but that will be tomorrow now, that's Friday, as I am just off to bed.

    Cheers

    Stoo

    Thanks guys ... I appreciate your input. By way of explanation, I'm returning to B&W photography (35mm and 6x7 MF) after a "lifetime" of working. I'm in the process of setting up my darkroom, and being a retired Engineer, I'm a bit anal about reading instructions. The instructions I got with the enlarger relate to the Magnifax 4 .... hence the question.

    Ian, thanks for the link - I've downloaded the data sheet and will work my way through it.

    Steve, there probably isn't an issue - I'm just used to dealing with complication !

    Stoo, I'll send my email details to you and thanks for the offer.

    Again, thanks to all.

    David

    Hi all,

    I would love a copy of this document if possible. Took delivery of the Meopta Meograde 4a today and am getting back into B&W after 5 years away with Canon and Leica digital.
