    Thread Size For El-Nikkor 5.6/210mm Enlarger Lens?

    Does anyone know the thread size for the El-Nikkor F5.6 210mm enlarger lens? I plan to mount it on my 45V-XL enlarger.

    Thanks

    Tim

    Here are specs for all El Nikor. http://www.savazzi.net/download/manu...g_lenses_2.pdf

    Here is the El Nikor 240 on a custom lens board to fit the XL

    If I remember correctly, the Nikkon 210 F5.6 enlarger lens won't mount on the 45V-XL enlarger without modifying the standard lens mounting board. The diameter of the lens is just a little bit too big for the existing hole that is drilled from the factory. It is possible to modify this, but it will probably take a real machine shop to do that work without making a mess of it.

    Hope that helps.

    Is this a continuation of this thread below? Are you still getting this sorted or have you been able to use the enlarger?

    I print 8x10 negatives with my 210mm lens but only to 8x10 paper, though. Never tried it any bigger with that lens.

    I also did this mural of four 16x20s with that 210mm lens, but I was only enlarging a slice of the 8x10 negative at a time.
