I'm new here and also I've just re-started shooting film a year or so ago after a very long break. Please be gentle with me!!!
I have taken the plunge and purchased a used LPL C6700 enlarger complete with timer, two lenses and loads of kit thrown in for 'silly cheap'. I have never developed or processed film before and I'm like a kid with a new toy (er...I guess I am a kid with a new toy!).
I'm getting there slowly but I think I need to open the enlarger up to do some cleaning etc. The dichroic filters seem a bit slow to react to the controls and the yellow occasionally does not work for the first part of the scale then "clicks" in and works fine. I reckon it's a bit gummed up in there. Maybee needs a lube? Can anybody tell me how to gain access to these gizmos? I think it looks like the metal cover removes with the three small screws along the bottom of each side but the knobs need to be removed before the will come off. Anybody have any clues?
Reckon I'm going to learn lots from everybody on here,
