    Well I have two - three if you count the little Bogen X-35 35mm model back at my parent's house in Tennessee, but I only have one set up in the darkroom. The other D2 is more for spare parts as it would need some work and cleaning up. Not a lot however - it could be done. I don't have the original lamphouse which I will put back on for printing color with CP filters but an LED one on it now for black and white.

    If I had my dream darkroom I'd have a couple of 4x5s (or 5x7) one with a color head and one with a VC head, and at least one 8x10. But that isn't happening any time soon. I don't have room for them anyway, especially an 8x10 monster.

    For my entire life I had only an ancient D2. Last year I built a horizontal 8x10 enlarger, but the D2 has been retired and is no longer in the darkroom. So I guess I only have one.

    Just one DeVere 504 with a ZoneVI VC head, 50,80, and 150mm lenses, and carriers for 35, 120, and 4x5. I guess since I only print B&W, and have never tried "Uelsmann-like" multiples, one enlarger at a time has done the trick. Color goes into the scanner and digital workflow.

    Just finished setting up my darkroom. I'll have to set up more stable table for the enlarger.

    Mohammed, Very Nice!! Man, That sure is a Beautiful processor, I have a CPP2 and love it, I keep telling my wife when I retire I'm going to buy one of these. NOBODY makes a better piece of equipment than Jobo. I shoot film for a lot of reasons, one is I love working in my darkroom. That processor will still be running strong 30 years from now. Post more pictures as you go.
    Best Regards, Mike.

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    Just took down my walls. My darkroom is no more and I am looking for a new space.
    Beseler 23c and 45MX - super low ceilings so a drop table and the insulation cut out above the enlargers for more head room.
    Nova print processing tanks
    The sink is a dry sink with washing done at the basement utility sink.

    I moved 3 years ago. Took me 6 months to get up the courage to rebuild. I got lucky new place had a utility room with no windows. Now I'm back better than before. I've got 4x5 Beseler enlargers too. One is the Blue paint I bought new in 1973. Rebuild!
    Best regards Mike

    Thank you Mike and Randy.

    I played with some cyanotype yesterday, but so far no location in sight.

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    This time of year I always want to wander to new places. Sell my home and use a Cargo van as camper. I cannot do both. But then I would lose my first and last darkroom. I wonder if Wet Plate is the solution. I have done the year long road trip 3 times. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. Miss you Janis!
