    Hello everybody. I'm brand new here and brand new to shooting with film. I just acquired a Beseler 23C II Enlarger and a bunch of darkroom equipment, however I don't have the manual for it. Does anybody happen to have it in PDF format that they could send? I've seached for this in the forums but all of the links to downloadable versions are broken.

    Thank you

    Thanks Lori. The manual for the original Beseler 23C helped a little, however if anyone has the manual for the 23C II, that would be great.

    Thank you.

    I'm just in the middle of shopping for this exact enlarger. Do you mind me asking how much you paid for this?
    Thank you.
    Oh, I may have the 23 c II during the week so I can scan and pdf for you.

    Paid $ 20 CDN for the one on the left. The older manual has actually more than the new one. Everything is the same except for the filter drawer.

    Donnie,

    I think I have the manual for mine.... if I do I'll make copies and get it to you. You will also need to make sure your enlarger is aligned properly when you set it up.... lots of info for that here.

    I guess I can't edit post #10 any more. The file moved to here.
