    Funny, I did exactly that and hence the picture I was able to accomplish that I posted earlier. But even so, it takes a very, very brief moment of direct light to expose the papers. I'll keep playing with it I 'spose.

    You can use those a Christmas lights, thats about all they are good for.

    In terms of the light falloff, printing the maximum size negative on any enlarger (even 8x10) requires careful alignment of the light source, negative carrier and lens.

    One way to do it:
    Take out the negative carrier and mark the outline the lightsource projects on the baseboard. Now put the negative carrier in and the rectangle it projects should be centered inside the first outline. In your case it likely won't be centered. So you need to wiggle the light source mixing box one way and the negative carrier the other way.
