    More Questions about the Beseler 23C II XL

    Ok,

    So I've learned a few things about buying enlargers from non photographer types...

    I asked the guy I bought this enlarger from to please break down the enlarger for shipping. Well he did more than just take the enlarger off the baseboard. I got two boxes of loose parts, and a zip lock back of nuts and bolts. :o

    I believe I have it together pretty good, just having trouble figuring out a few final touches. I have the long shaft with the two snap rings holding the enlarger to the chassis, but how does it remain upright? There is a lever that locks it into wall projection mode, but I don't see how it stays put and at the proper angle with regular baseboard enlargement. See attachment 1 for how it looks right now.

    Also wondering what the "T" shaped doo dad is on the chassis. See photo 2

    And finally, I ended up removing the item pictured in attachment 3 from the chassis, as I believe it is for mounting an aftermarket light source to the enlarger. can anyone confirm?

    I downloaded a manual (thanks fo the tip BW Girl) but haven't printed it out yet. Thanks.

    And then the voice inthe back of my head says... "HEY STUPID, LOOK ON THE FLOOR!"

    Ah yes, missing a piece, I thought I heard something fall earlier... Question #1 solved.

    Looks an awful lot like a lock screw to keep the head from slipping after the height is set.

    Brian,

    Just got my Beseler 23CII-XL home Saturday.

    The "T" shaped device is the elevation lock. Crank it up or down to where you want it, then lock it off. The manual says that most damage to the elevation gears is done by moving the enlarger head up and down with the lock engaged.

    #3: I'm not sure. Mine is the condenser version, and there's nothing like that present. It looks like a diffuser for coldlight or diffusion head.
