I am in a position to get a DeVere 5108 enlarger. This is a floor stand model. I have a smallish SUV and would like to avoid renting a moving van, if possible. I know this machine can be broken down in half and would like to know from someone with experience doing so how tall each half is. I will have about 4-5 feet in the back once the seats are removed to lay the pieces down. The enlarger is missing the actual baseboard, though the frame the baseboard attaches to is still there. I have ordered the owner's manual, but there is no guarantee that it will arrive before I pick this up. Any help would be appreciated.
Try moving it without separating the two halves. The Controls for the head are on the drop baseboard frame and the linkage is tricky to reassemble.
