    Was about to ask that question myself. Luis. I also need to find a place to find a spare bulb based upon the discoloring of the existing bulb have. Maybe the folks that sell these bulbs can validate...

    Thanks for the assistance. Will attempt the disassembly to see what bulb I have this evening. I saw the fan with the white plastic blades in the back of the light section. The fan fins did not look...

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

    Thanks a bunch. The previous owner only turned it on when he acquired it over 10 years ago and never used it. That is why I am being so cautious. I will take a run and carefully removing the halogen...

    Thanks Drew and ic-racer. This information is very helpful. The wall power plug that I had an electrician put into my darkroom for this enlarger I believe is 220V which conveys to me that I have a...
