    Re: Beseler 45M

    I'm a 2 1/4 guy just getting into 4x5. I have a Beseler 45 enlarger, looking for a used Ilford 500 Multigrade head - anybody got one or know where I might find one? Nothing on eBay today. Thanks - and this is my very first post as well!

    Do yourself a favor, and get the Beseler 45V-XL instead. Much easier to align, and hold alignment. They can be had on eBay inexpensively, although for more money that the 45MXT, etc.

    I've owned 2 MXT's, and got rid of them for a 45V-XL, and NEVER looked back.

    Paid $5 for mine, locally, 3 years ago. Came with 50-100-150 Schneider lenses mounted on the funny boards that light up the aperture settings. Check Freecycle, Craigslist, etc; people are often willing to donate these if they're going to someone who will put them to good use, rather than just selling them on the 'bay.

    Agreed re: 45-VXL. Much better enlarger.

    Saw a 45m discarded on the street last year from a school that was closing its darkroom. (Black one, not blue one). Took head and condensors, couldn't help myself.
    This is why I have no closet space.

    Re: Beseler 45M

    I need some help with my Beseler 45M. The scale on my enlarger for adjusting the height of the condenser for different negative sizes is missing. If you still have the scale on your Beseler could you tell me the distance between neg stage and condense for the following formats: 35mm, 6x6 and 4x5. I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks,

    from the lower screw that hold the marker
    1" = 4x5
    3 3/16" = 2 1/4 x 3 1/4
    4 3/16" = 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
    5 3/4" = 35mm
