    Repairing Zone VI Enlarger

    I stupidly damaged the plastic tracks that allow the carriage of my Zone VI enlarger to raise and lower. Does anyone know if there are replacements somewhere for these? Calumet and Zone VI are long, long gone.

    If replacements are nowhere to be found, maybe you could splice in a section from the top or bottom, whichever you use the least.

    They are available. I think I have a reference that I will have to search for. The enlarger will work even if they are buggered. Just go slow.

    This is what I have saved: the product is WM Berg 3CCF-5ft cable chain. The advice is to remove the old product, scrape out the old glue, and cement in the replacement with Loctite 45. Look thru the similar products on the Berg site and make sure you get the correct one. It would be helpful to other Zone VI users (like me :-)) and report back if you repair it. Good luck.

    I have the same problem with mine. The plastic track just wears out at the popular heights. For me, I changed the height of the base board to compensate. Not a great fix, but works for now.
