    How to mount a Durst M805 on the wall?

    Few days ago, I bought a Durst M805 condenser enlarger. I am very happy since it looks like new. Now, I am just waiting for a 6x6 glassless negative carrier that I found in http://www2.durst.it/shop/ .
    In order to print 16x20 with my Saunders easel, I have decided that the best thing I can do is to mount the enlarger on the wall with two brackets, one in the base and another one at the top. I know that many of you have made the same thing.
    Can you give some pictures about the brackets that you use, even though you are working with a different enlarger? Can you tell me how high you have raised the column enlarger from the table? Any good advice is welcome.
    Thank you,
    Henry.

    You might want to copy the Omega style plate and top support:

    The two arms telescope out and connect to that little plate that mounts to the top of the column.

    That 2nd mount is roughly what you need, but any small metal workshop/fabricator will make one that'll fit the Durst at a fraction of the B&H price.

    I had one made about 30 years ago and I've used it ever since.

    Excellent article, George. I am going to use an iron support for the base that a mechanical is making for me right now. I took the idea from this picture: http://www.film-and-darkroom-user.or....php/photo/247.
    However, for the upper support I am going to make something similar to you.
    I want to thank all of you for your comments.
    Henry.
