  1. Re: Durst L1840 Enlarger 8x10 10x10--Everything you wanted to know...

    If you read the fine print, it says that the illuminated barrels are in FL 135,150,180 & 210. I guess the 240, 300 & 360 were in plain barrels. Since mine is in shutter, it's a mute point. Would...
  2. Re: Durst L1840 Enlarger 8x10 10x10--Everything you wanted to know...

    This is the only 240 Componon-S I own. I bought it for the Compur 3 shutter. Since it had an extra set of threads, I had a Lapla mounted on on the back end so I can use it on my enlarger. Not used...

    Re: 210mm or 240mm for Portraits?

    You should be able to find a 210 Geronar in a modern Copal 1 shutter easily and cheaply. You can also look for a Caltar E which is a Tessar design, again in a modern Copal 1. Don't pay over 2 bills...

    Re: 210mm or 240mm for Portraits?

    You should be able to find either in a Copal 1.

    You don't even need film, you can use enlarging paper in the holders and make paper negatives which will show you the coverage. L

    Re: Intrepid 8x10 experiences?

    No! That will only drive up the price of used Deardorff! Just keep using your Intrepids and complaining.

    Re: Intrepid 8x10 experiences?

    I've got several 30 year plus Deardorffs that are still light tight. Matter of fact, I've never heard of a Deardorff that's been reasonably taken care of leaking. That is just unacceptable. L
  9. Re: Durst 138S - asking for detailed instructions

    I've used white lithium grease. Also I would not re-tension the spring except as a last resort. L

  11. Re: Durst 138S - asking for detailed instructions

    IC, the OP said she got it from England, so the bulb should be 220V, right? Will the wiring work for 120v or will she need to re-wire it?

  12. Re: Durst 138S - asking for detailed instructions

    I downloaded these, most I already had. One of the manuals is for the older L-138, not the L-138S. You can tell the difference because the "S" has a squarish bellows without much taper and a...
  13. Re: Durst 138S - asking for detailed instructions

    My SM-183 uses the same head, but a different base, so I'm not that familiar with the L-138S base. Sorry I can't be of more help. The problem with the spring is if you try to open the spring...

    I hardly ever use a 150 lens, my standard is a 210 mm. When I need a shorter lens, it's usually a 120 mm or shorter and then I use a bag bellows. You already have a 75mm for wide shots. For...

    Yes, plus the camera is off. Just the two round rails, the top spring housing and the camera carrier.

    I store mine horizontal. No issues with the springs.
  24. Re: Choosing a film camera for the future... (35mm vs 4x5!)

    If you can swing it, I'd get both if the price is right. That way, you can try both for an extended period of time and either keep both, or get rid of the one you don't like.

    Good Luck!

    Not a very convenient enlarger for 6x6. What bulb does it have?

    Looks like it's shot. Usually happens from trying to raise or lower above the stop, or forcing it. These gears have a single hole for a through pin; may be necessary to drill a second hole in it. ...

    I'd get a long Artar as a second lens. Either a 19" or 24" depending on coverage. Don't know of many 10" lenses that will cover 11x14 with movements. L
