I have the M707 version of this enlarger. I don't think such a bracket has ever been made. To overcome this problem I unbolted the column from the base board and refixed it in reverse. I was then able stand the enlarger on a table, with weights on the baseboard, and project down to floor level. Not an ideal long term solution, but solved my problem of producing 60 x 40 inch prints fro 35mm. Alternatively maybe you could twist the head through 90 degrees and project onto a wall. Apart from that I can only say good luck and remember to find some large dishes, or in my case, drum.
