    8x10---Horizontal to Vertical unique method

    I had never seen this before, but the e-bay ad below shows a DeVere 8x10 with a well built special stand to flip the whole column horizontally. (rather than rotate the head like a Durst).

    Old Elwoods do that.

    The Beseler 45MX does something like that. The head tilts but not the whole column.

    I always found it easier just to rotate the easel.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Omega has another variant: place a mirror just under the lens. I have that attachment for my enlarger.

    Uh, could you please explain that? Like, how do you get the image onto the wall easel when the head is pointing down?

    Brian,
    Have you used it? How does that work out for you? Any issues w/mirror scratches or defects? I've seen a mirror for what I think was the D series Omega on eBay a while back but I don't think it would have fit my F1. If I could find the correct mirror I'd jump on it - seems like an inexpensive means to horizontal enlarging.

    Any front surface mirror should work. Maybe one from an old TLR?

    - Hmm. And I've got a couple old Mamiya TLR's stashed somewhere. I suppose a perfect 45 degree orientation is critical to avoid stretching the image though a pivoting mount would let you adjust the image til it looked right. Sounds like another project.
