    I tested my turret with the laser alignment tool. I have to re-align each lens separately, I was surprised to find out, as my turret is not a precise instrument.
    That is one reason I have 2 chassis. The one without the 3 lens turret is for Minox through 35mm. Each lens cone is shimmed to get correct alignment, with the lens cone for the 25mm lens taking priority.

    The enlarger with the turret has a 75mm, 105mm and 150mm for 4x5in and 6x9cm work and because the enlargement ratios are less, it is less sensitive to turret being slightly off.

    Also note that I have 'flase' baseboards on top of the regular baseboards. Each corner of the 'flase' baseboards has a setscrew adjustment to get a precision alignment of the paper easel.

    Richard,

    Welcome to the LF Forum. That is a beautiful set up you have. You might enjoy the thread called “Darkroom Portraits” over on APUG.org. At this writing they have 863 posts and 182,306 views. Someone must like the thread.

    I’ll have to shoot some of my space. At this moment I only have a pic of the 8x10 enlarger.

    I love this photo of André Kertész in his darkroom in 1927. Not meant in any way to disparage more technologically advanced darkrooms, I find this image inspirational in its simplicity. Kértész is one of my favorite photographers and this helps keep things in perspective for me. That being said, this photo is not a master plan for the darkroom I'm building.

    This image is published by the J. Paul Getty Museum on the back cover of a small book simply entitled André Kertész as part of their In Focus series. (And yes, I am using it here completely without permission.)

    How many of you, like Kertesz, always wear a suit and tie when you print?

    Now there are 69 clicks, just three hours later.

    BTW, if you click it, turn-up your screen, & switch-off the room lights, you can see the equipment a lot better. I think his darkroom image was simply under-exposed.

    Does climbabout's darkroom get any bigger or is it just very small? It doesn't open for me.

    I wonder if it's AM or PM. What do you think? Is he getting ready to go out or coming back in?
