I am thinking of building an 8x10" head for one of my enlargers. Does anyone know where I could find information or plans for building the head? I will probably use it on my Beseler 45V-XL. I would like to build a cold light head but a tungsten light source is not out of the question - I could use cooling fans to draw out heat and it would be a diffusion head - NOT a condenser head. Balancing light temperature to get me in the middle VC contrast range would be no problem.
8x10 heads are SO expensive and, being a very handy person, I think I will build the head myself.
Anyway, if anyone can point me to plans or information that would help me with this project, I would greatly appreciate it.
