Funny, I'm at lunch looking at M600 operating instructions. I recently bought a M601 which is a quality portable enlarger. The M600 is at the top of a short list of even smaller, quality, MF enlargers.
I doubt there could be alignment issues given the 600 design. A grain focus device checking the corners would confirm alignment.
This is one of the most portable enlargers for enlarging MF 6x6 negs to 8x10 or smaller. If you routinely make bigger enlargements a M601 with taller column and larger baseboard is a better choice.
Nothing will be as smooth as the Leitz 1c but it can't enlarge 6x6 negs.
