For others wanting Gnome enlarger information I have recently gotten a copy of a small magazine they published called "Enlarging is simple" It gives lots of information on using Gnome enlargers. Just PM me with your email address if you want a copy.
If the offer still stands Scott i'll PM you !

I think 35mm will keep me plenty busy for the time being ;-)
Just sent you the email sorry about the delay.
A long Google search looking for info on the Universal Alpha II landed me here. I would really appreciate it if you could send me the manual, if this is still possible. I got one of these enlargers recently and I want to start using it as soon as I can. It will be my first adventure into enlarging again since the late 1990s, so I hope it all works out. I only need to buy a lens for it, and I'm trying to establish what the right specs would be for a 50mm lens.
