    An update...

    LCD/Voltarc's new manufacturing run of replacement lamp grids for the Aristo VCL4500 variable-contrast cold light heads has apparently happened. Yesterday I received an email from Louise informing me that my credit card had been billed and my order was shipped the day before. UPS is scheduled to deliver to me on May 9th. I'm pretty excited. I presume others who placed orders have also been - or will be - notified.

    Now that the 4x5 replacement lamps have been taken care of, Louise also mentioned in her email that she was hoping to soon send out the pricing quote sheet for the upcoming VCL8100 replacement lamps.

    Even though my own need has now been met, I still want to make sure everyone else who might want or need new 8x10 lamp grids are in the loop on this. As always Louise may be contacted directly at:

    louise.kessler@voltarc.com

    That is good news. How much do the 4x5 tubes cost?

    I am in the market for 8x10 tubes but fear the cost.

    The original 4x5 price quote sheet may be seen here.

    It was issued on Feb 15, 2011, and is good through Dec 31, 2011.

    P.S. to Jerold, since you are already on her 8x10 list you might want to check your personal email right now. Five minutes ago I received an email from Louise with the 8x10 price quotes. I will get her quote document into a public link and post it shortly...

    [Edit: The email from Louise containing the LCD price quote for the VCL8100 lamps is here.]

    I recently acquired a 5x7 Aristo cold light on an Omega E6 enlarger. I don't believe it has the VC lamp. Have they started making them for this enlarger yet? If so, can you just swap out the old lamp for the new V54 lamp? Is it a difficult undertaking?

    You can get the most accurate availability information by contacting louise.kessler@voltarc.com. She's incredibly helpful.

    I put a V54 lamp into the head of my Beseler 45 some years ago (replacing the old W55). It was not difficult, just requires care and attention to detail. As I recall I didn't need any special tools.
