    By all means I'd collect some and try them. I have been wanting to do that myself, but have too many projects already. Did you see my posts on using the Zoom enlarging lens? http://www.apug.org/forums/viewpost.php?p=1127857

    Also, this is the print done using a clear 'sandwich bag' as a diffuser, close to the paper for about 1/2 the exposure time:

    Now, the question is, which lens is funky enough to be worth tracking down?

    Sorry I misread your post, for your purposes you might want to see if you can find a Federal enlarger lens from the 40s, three elements uncoated, will need an adaptor ring to fit to a lens board. At the price of some Federals may be cheaper to just buy an enlarger.

    I had a Federal enlarger in the 60's, no condensors and a funky lens, I had lotsa fun learning to enlarge on it. I had a contact printer before that, a Sears DR kit I recieved for Christmas, I was in high cotton.
