Hi, just put together a Focomat 1c enlarger that was a gift (nice) from garage cleaning. It was used a bit professionally then put away deep in a horse barn/garage, has all the tricks. The AN glass (intact and in holders! yay) has a bit of fogging, looks like the small bit of mat board the pro used to protect the glass had a bit of outgassing or some slight reaction, a bit of haze/fog. Really not sure if a) I need the AN glass b) the fog will have any effect. The condenser also needs a better cleaning, but looks pretty clear without the filter. Any help figuring out how to pull it out for further correct cleaning would be helpful.
I did a test print and without a neg in the holder there is a very light pattern/blotchiness projected on to easel, not sure if that's from the AN filter or the condensor. THe print has that slight pattern/blotchiness as well.
I have extensive darkroom experience, use a MX with Zone IV cold light heard so I can figure most stuff out, this is my first time on the Focomat. TIA
