    Re: Replacement bulbs for Zone VI 5x7 Type II VC enlarger

    Having similar problem. The green tube quit working on my Zone VI VC head on my Beseler 4x5 enlarger. I've searched for a replacement tube but haven't had any luck. So, I'm looking for a replacement head, namely an Aristo VCL4500.. Anyone have any ideas.. The Heiland LED head sounds like a nice solution.

    When the bulbs die, you should get about 10000 hours of use I would put in LEDs.
    I have a Zone VI VC head for Beseler 4x5, and 5x7 and 8x10 Zone IV type II enlargers. I use a Metrolux II timer. I got this stuff from someone that bought it and never used it. Amazing equipment. I plan on using this equipment for many years to come. Nothing better. The 5x7 is on standby right now as I use the Beseler for 4x5 on down and the 8x10 for 8x10 and 6x17. The negative carrier in the 8x10 is better than anything else I have every seen for 8x10 negatives. I hate glass carriers. Best Regards, Mike

    I had a new Aristo1414 tube custom made for about $500 a few years ago.
