There are tables for doing the same thing with color heads. The trouble is finding (or making your own) table to match your enlarger with the paper you're using. I've got the tables printed with my enlarger's manual taped to my wall next to the enlarger, in a nice big font so I can read it easily. One of the two tables works with most papers. (Ilford and Foma papers use one table, most others use a table intended for Kodak papers.)
