    does anyone know how to remove the bellows from the L184 ? screws on bottom are easy, but I cannot see the head of the ones on top. looks like these are a bit hidden below the negative carrier stage. thanks

    Yep, ouch! You might have to remove everything above, and even the carrier stage itself. But that's not such a bad thing to have to do, because at the same time, you can check the squareness, tightness, and lube of the hidden masking blades. Just part of a basic overhaul.

    No worse than having to pull the engine of certain BMW's to change the spark plugs. Psychopaths apparently have as much a right to an Engineering degree as anyone else.

    Yea, Durst does throughout their enlargers and their line... (NOT SERVICE FRIENDLY, even to get at common stuff...)

    One thing to be careful of while servicing (esp their "sheet metal" enlargers) that there are hidden screws in strange places not easily accessible, and of different critical lengths that need to be replaced EXACTLY as you removed them, so work out a system when you start... And different panels may not fit when you try to reinstall, so expect difficulties!!!

    Indeed. Diagram and number every little thing with removable tape or separate plastic bags when disassembling, so it can be replaced in exactly the same position afterwards. But overall, having done several major Durst reconditioning projects, none of them have been particularly difficult.

    Every time I have to get at a problem part in a professional Durst, it makes me appreciate the easy to adjust, service etc, unfussy yet high precision engineering of De Vere's 504/507/5108/515...
