    Durst L1840 Parts Needed

    Hi all,

    I am looking for a few parts missing from my recently acquired Durst L1840/CLS1840. They are

    1. Front door and light trap for the Laraneg

    2. Handle for turning neutral density wheel

    3. Plastic transfer gears (2) for filter wheel

    If anyone has spares they can part with please let me know. Cash/trade/barter, whatever.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hi Mike
    Sadly I don't have your spare parts but since I have the same enlarger head, I was curious where you got the blow-up diagrams from?

    Thanks

    These came from Durst-Pro's free manuals page. The first image is from the Laraneg brochure and the other from the spare parts catalog.

    I may have a locking knob for the floor/track wheels.

    Did you see the Miter Gears on the McMaster site: http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-gears/=h1ec10

    Also, I have seen automotive shift knobs that look similar to the large control knobs on the head:

    Those knobs look nice, though I still have the originals, fortunately. I could use a caster lock knob as I have only two. As for the miter gears, they must have the same dimensions as the original, because the shafts are locked in position and an variance in dimensions will cause them to bind or not mesh properly.

    OK, guys, I just got the bad news: Durst Pro cannot provide any Laraneg parts. So, now I must add to my original SOS: If anyone has a complete Laraneg assembly for sale please contact me.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    It appears that Jay Overmoen has the Laraneg and can sell it to me. Earlier I received the other small parts I needed from Gary Mulder when I dropped in on him at his home in the Netherlands. So it looks like I'm set.
