    Re: Plaubel Peco

    I used Permatex Black Silicone Adhesive Sealant by Loctite, it came in a 3 oz tube, their item number 79340-81158. Out of the tube the adhesive was a thick paste, easy to use (not runny or stiff)....

    Re: Plaubel Peco

    Daniel Unkefer on this forum may be your best bet for reliable information. I used a black silicone adhesive that worked well for me, for re-attaching a bellows that had come loose from it's frame -...
  3. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Chauncey, I had an inkling that some others who have chimed in on this thread concur with you. I took away from seadiver5's comment on the autofocus' utility in a production environment, that it...

    Kevin, the photos of the E-5 gears. Gear OD 1.149", hub OD 0.739", shaft OD 0.311". 12 teeth.

  5. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I've seen 'jimmied' glass carriers: two plates of glass masked with tape to make the non-negative area opaque. The user who mentioned them (over on the former APUG forum) claimed long and untroubled...
  6. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Chauncey - or anyone else who has an enlarger using autofocus rails compatible with an E-5 - I have one rail unmarked for focal length, and unmatched to a lens. If you have one of a 161mm, 180mm, or...
  7. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Kevin, I am one of those folks. Why use a glass negative carrier? For negative flatness?
  8. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I'll check this out Kevin - pretty interesting approach. Thanks.
  9. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Kevin, I sent you a PM.
  10. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Kevin, excuse me for not responding earlier to this post. Thank you for the insight on the D2s and ebay. I think that your base at $50 is an excellent deal, and rather than monitoring the auction...
  11. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Eli, greetings. I didn't find a power supply with the enlarger, but I did find one easily enough online. I chose a compact electronic rapid-start ballast appropriate to a 32 watt FC12T10/9 circline...
  12. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Yah - thanks for mentioning that, I hadn't got that far in my thinking.

    Like you said, following the new mat path is reversible, which I like.
  13. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Kevin, I see that I'm in the company of a dauntless craftsman. You and Daniel seem not to hesitate to take anything on. In my trepidation, I've been looking at a pourable foam rubber replacement for...
  14. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Daniel, those carriers look a lot like the E-5 carriers (photo attached). The E-5 carriers measure 7 15/32" x 11 23/32" .... same as the E-3 carriers?
  15. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I just got the Omegalite head casing back from the sandblaster ... he got almost all the old interior finish off. Something I hadn't noticed before: if you picture the bottom half of the head, there...
  16. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Kevin, the enlarger base is 5.5" in diameter. and the flange is about .320" thick. I believe the D-2 baseplate is compatible with the E series, I get that from the KHB website...
  17. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    .... same here Daniel. I take a table outside in the sun when the days are over 40F and the wind is modest. Muddy though.
  18. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Seadiver5, greetings. I'm mid-restoration on this enlarger, and haven't decided yet that I will incorporate it into my darkroom or pass it on. If the latter, I'll bear your interest in mind. At this...
  19. Re: Does anyone know a source for Omega D5 parts?

    Did you ever find a gear? I'm also in the market for one for an E-5. From the KHB site, I gather that the D-2 through -6, B-7 through -10, E-5,6 and Chromega E Dichroic 5x7 use the same gear. ...

    xkaes, the link didn't work for me. The subclub site has been unavailable (to my browsers) for quite a while now. You can connect with this URL?
  21. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Thank you Steve.

    I located a negative carrier for 4x5 at KHB - it's very expensive, following the law of supply and demand, I suppose. But if I spring for it, I can run it through my rube...
  22. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I took possession of the enlarger today, with some confidence that I will be able to find or fabricate needed parts.

    The enlarger had 2 rails, one labeled to match the accompanying 101mm...
  23. Re: LegacyPro EcoPro BW Film Developer - Have you used it? - Your thoughts

    Ig, one unopened package okay after 10-11 months, and I've had a stock solution work fine after 5 months, stored in a full, airtight brown bottle. Both kept indoors at room temperature in a dark...
  24. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Chauncey: Interesting in Tin Can's link that they are making LED Circlines. They seem to be on the cold side so would have to check on the actinic values. Since you didn't mention having the separate...
  25. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Thank you, Chauncey. I posted the same thread in the current APUG forum, and there it was suggested that a lamphouse conversion to LED sources might be a better option than replacing the current...
  26. Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I've come across an incomplete Simmon Bros (Omega) Automega E-5 5x7 autofocus enlarger. There are also a very few loose parts (lens and lensboard, lens mounting cylinder,cable, 2 magnetic clamps) ,...
  27. Re: LegacyPro EcoPro BW Film Developer - Have you used it? - Your thoughts

    ... I could add that I just mixed and used a batch of Eco Pro that I bought 10-11 months ago, stored at room temperature, with no problem.
  28. Re: LegacyPro EcoPro BW Film Developer - Have you used it? - Your thoughts

    Ig, Eco Pro's reduced toxicity attracted me about 18 months ago. Since then I've used Eco Pro interchangeably with Kodak Xtol, without noting any systematic differences in negatives.

    By pulling the dark slide all the way out before loading the film, chances seem good that you will notice an improperly loaded sheet when you reinsert the dark slide. Removing the dark slide also...
