Hi Resurgance,

I have the same enlarger although with the colour head and I'm looking into a similar modification. Did you try to focus the LED light? My plan is to put a short tube with an inner diameter of approx. 25mm of a highly reflective metal between the LED module and the dichroic filter section so that practically all light from the LED module would be "guided" into the mixing chamber. Would something like that be possible with the VCCE head. Do you stil have your LPL enlarger with the LED module to try it out?
