    Re: Durst 138s laborator light bulb

    I ended up passing on it..the space I will be using isn't too big and that enlarger was well...the opposite of "not too big"
    For now, I'm going to find a nice 35mm dedicated enlarger and then just get a bigger one when I get a bigger space, and bigger camera .. though, it certainly was not as complicated of an enlarger that people made it out to be..but at the same time I do appreciate people not wanting me to become discouraged in the darkroom due to an enlarger that is not "plug in and go". If anyone is missing any pieces on a Durst 138s, let me know and I can put you in touch with the guy, it had everything, and was pretty mint.

Here is a link to the bulb i'm referring to: - will this work? Or does it have to look like one of those G40 bulbs I've seen people write about?
    I just don't want to buy an enlarger and not be able to find a light for it... Anyone know if this light would work?

    Also, anyone ever try this light for the Durst? It's sold/marketed as a replacement -

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the expertise.
    You can get a G 40 bulb at Home Depot. Plenty bright for my needs.
