    Help me to identify the enlarger.

    As the seller told it is a Focomat Ic but after reading manual, Focomat Ic have tilt heads but mine does not have one.

    Also on the enlarger head it is only written as Leitz Wetzlar Germany and no mentioning about Focomat Ic or any other model, but it has Focotar 50mm f/4.5 DOOCQ and a 75W lamp attached to it.

    I could not able to find the name of this model.

    Looks like a Focomat 1, prior to the C version, mebbe a 1 or 1a.

    From the serial number, I found that the lens was manufactured in 1960.

    If you keep it replace that 50 year old cable.

    :-) I will replace the cable and the plug, since old German plug does not fit into the new ones. May be I will rewire it to by-pass the old switch attached to it.

    Looks like the head does tilt if the angles on the plate at the back in Pic. 3 are anything to go by.

    I think those angles are for moving up and down the head, once fit to the post.

    I had a lC once upon a time 30 years ago. It didn't have a tilt head either.
    There were several incarnations of this model. This looks early, the next version had a filter drawer in the lamp housing. Later they went to a lighter finish and taller column(memory)
    Does the Leica site have any information on it?
