it's a second hand enlarger that i bought some time ago, but i hadn't time to test it before properly, yes it's new to me.
Before using Lpl, i was a happy condenser type of guy.
I know that you must used more contrasty negs for this sort of enlargers, and i did so, i checked my negs, i did some "home made" densiometry to get more contrast. So i'm quite sure it has to be a problem with this enlarger.
Btw i'll try to change the bulb (i've got some spares that first owner give to me), i just shot some film that i'll develop very heavily and see what happens, i'll let you know.
Thanks for your time, i really appreciate it.
