    I've moved that head to Beseler 45 - I'd like to fix the older one but at that cost it's going to be hard to justify. Guess I'm just spoiled with current prices on used equipment .
    Used prices on Ilford heads are getting up there too though ...

    Most definitely. I passed on a couple of offers for 2nd hand 500 systems several years back - now I wish I hadn't. I imagine that the vast majority of 500 systems were originally bought by labs and universities. Most of the labs (and university darkrooms) that have ditched their traditional printing equipment did it several years ago. Those that weathered the storm and still have their enlargers in place are probably going to keep them. You might see them trickle onto the market every now and then, but I have a feeling that the days of picking up Ilford 500 systems for cheap have passed. Hopefully I am wrong

    There's one in the Chicago area craigslist ads right now for $250, is that cheap? Seems so to me...

    Heat absorbing glass repalcement

    I bought an Omega 5XL with Ilford 500 system. Now I checked the head and find only cracked pieces on the right side! Anyone found a source for Ilford 500 head heat absorbing glass? The filter has only a slight scratch.

    I got a lot of negative carriers for the Omega but no 4x5". Anyone wants to swap a carrier? I also got an extended lens holder with 39mm hole that I would swap for a 50mm thread.

    I´m from Germany and shipping costs could be an issue.

    I was going to mention that if you are still having trouble finding parts I have a complete very good condition unit I can part out.......oops its your unit! Any chance coming out next week? John and I and whoever else want to come by usually get together in Penninsula during the Winter. If you can't make it, no problem.

    Hey, don't be giving away my enlarger head! Can't make it unfortunately, though it sounds like fun. We will hopefully be down soon though and will be able to collect the unit.

    Alternate source

    Sorry I can't post the link, 5 post n00b blocker, but edmund optics also sells heat blocking glass in various sizes. It's Schott glass so if you needed something larger than what edmund has, you could probably special order it from Schott.
