    Much of the anxiety of my move has been relieved with this post!!!!. I believe with the camera off the column I can get the column over to the new house with one helper. Good news is the new house is only 8 houses away on the same street. I'll be pushing it down the sidewalk on two dollies. I'd rather do that than have "movers" take it out of the basement and put it in their truck to go down the street. I trust them with the couches and tables and chairs, but not with this enlarger.

    I have a picture of the actual room for the proposed darkroom. I suspect that somehow the drain for the sink can get through the wall and meet up with the existing drain to the sink in that bathroom.

    My mistake on the last darkroom was to be limited by the counter tops they had at Home Depot. I used their un-assembled base cabinets but was really limited by the few pre-sized counter top pieces.

    Now, the same style cabinets are not available, so I'll leave them in the old house.

    I like these cabinets and my plan is to put the base cabinet assembly kits exactly where I want them then pay a kitchen installer to make the counter tops for me, rather than use the Home Depot counter tops.
    These cabinet bases are a lot nicer than what I had before:

    Pardon my ignorance, but is there a camera atached to a L1840 enlarger ? Why ?

    Best,

    Just 'technical jargon.' One of the service manuals refers to the part with the bellows as the "camera." Maybe a poor translation, more are probably accustom to knowing it as a "carriage."

    Moving can be almost tragic, especially after a divorce, when you had a whole house dedicated to the darkroom, assembly room, exhibition gallery ... and lost everything.
    It spilled oil, I do not know how, on the boxes containing the LPL columns, and the solution was to wash them.

    Offer on new house did not go through. So...I'm putting the L1840 all back together and giving it a cleaning and inspection. I have it flipped on its side to get to the lamp and reflector.

    Is it off the shelf repurposed?

    Is there a scientific theory for the 'ridges or spirals' instead of a simple parabola.
