I didn't plan to do disassemble anything except for enough to remove the condensers. I don't plan to touch the negative stage or lens stage at all.
So just to be clear, the round aluminum housing that holds the fixed condensers can slide out on it's own? The variable condenser drawer and lamp housing are self supported?
My plan is to bring some old shirts. I plan to wrap the variable condenser in a shirt, remove the fixed condenser housing and just wrap the whole thing in a shirt and place that in the front of my car. The baseboard and enlarger would go in the trunk with the enlarger resting on it's side probably on an old blanket.
