Ok , I dial in my filters , I do not use a 0 and 5 method so your solution would be of little value to me.
I am looking for a power cord from the transformer to the head if any of you have an extra one.

btw the CLS 2000 is an awesome enlarger .

ic-racer suggested an elegant solution. Dial in maximum yellow and use the white light lever to actuate yellow filtration. Use the supplementary filter (with a magenta filter in place instead of the standard one) as the maximum magenta filtration independatly actuated with the supplementary filter lever.

As I now have time between semesters, I thought of trying to source a dichroic magenta filter the same size as the supplementary filter. I sent out several emails so far. What I've learned:

1) Edmond Optics does not custom cut dichroic filters (unless the order is for 50 pieces minimum)
2) The three filters in the CLS 2000 head measure 87 x 77 x 2mm. This is slightly smaller than the supplemtary filter at 87 x 83 x 2mm. This is important because one solution is to use the magenta filter of the CLS 2000 in the supplementary filter drawer.

As you say Bob, I can dial in the filtration. I can also make a filter holder for under the lens filters. This is what happens to me when I have time on my hands! I work hard to make my work easier
