No pictures at the moment, but I currently have a Beseler 23CII XL, an LPL 670 DXL and a Leica Focomat v35. The Focomat will probably get sold in the spring as I don't really have room for it and haven't used it in quite a while.
I have one and a half enlargers. The one I use is a LPL7700 which I have had for eons. I will enlarge a 35mm neg to over 12x16. With 120 film and a 645 or 6x6 neg and a 75mm lens it will enlarge further
The other is an LPL 6700 which is fully functional but a less well specified model, but at present is minus a baseboard, hence the 'half' designation. That will only enlarge to just under 12x16 unless it is fixed onto a wall. Both have Dichroic colour heads
I have D3 with condenser and very old circular cold light light sources, LPL 6700 with color head, Metopta Opemus 3 with condenser head, and Federal Stowaway Jr. I keep two set up, The D3 is always set up, currently I have the Metopta in the dark room. I generally work with 2 negatives at a time, 6X9 and 4X5 on the Omega, 6X6 and 35mm on the other. The Federal is really strange by modern standards, 6X9, diffusion with a clear bulb, fixed 2 element lens, waterhouse stops, I use it for portraits.
A little Durst F30 that I have not used in a couple of decades, a Durst M605 which will probably go back in service in the new darkroom, an old Beseler M45 with front struts, and a Beseler MXT that looks like it will get a drop table and my home build 8x10 head. The Beselers have the option of the really old cold light, a condenser light source or 45s colour head.
Saunders 4550 XL VCCE, Leitz Focomat 1c and a Minox. Can't remember the model of Minox but it is the second to last. I also have a Focomat 1a and a Durst Magico. If anyone wants the Magico let me know. I'll never use it.
Until a month ago I have only ever used a Federal 219 from the late 40s or early 50s. I got it from my Grandfather in the mid 1990s. It would handle negatives up to 6x9cm, but was difficult to properly align for anything larger than an 8x10. Recently replaced with a Beseler 23C II. I modified a Beseler negative carrier to accommodate the Federal’s glass plates and various format masks. Alignment is no longer an issue.
Well, I own this Bogen 35, but it's not exactly one that I am "using". Let's put it this way, it's one that I "hope to be using sometime before I die". Being a sucker for a deal, I got this for a song. However, it's severely vertically challenged because it didn't have a base plate. Which is why it was a deal.
The idea, and I use that word loosely, was to fabricate a mount for it and attach it to a flat piece of wood. But I have so many other things going on, nothing has happened since it was unpacked. Other than it was taken out of its closet for this portrait.
Now I have this other "idea" (see above). Why not celebrate the fact that it's a horizontal enlarger, you know, like Ansel Adams used? If I can get it leveled on something w/ wheels, a roller skate maybe?, then I can just tape the paper to the wall and there you go.
Or I could use the eBike, being as the enlarger is already sorta on there, and the bike does have wheels. But the bike doesn't have a kickstand, which is why I got it so.....oh, never mind.
I was sort of fortunate in that when I got into photography I was in the army and moved from base to base and always searched out the Special Services photo labs to play in. Each had an assortment of enlargers so I was able to try out a bunch and when I got out of the service I decided that the Beseler 23C would serve my purpose and bought one and outfitted it with Schneider lenses. That was in 1976. It's moved with me from place to place but's been in my Montana darkroom for 31 years.
Beseler MCRX but the C is sitting on the sidelines replaced by a LED diffusion head built for split printing Multigrade paper. Did anyone ever use the "R" Resistrol? I turned mine all the way up and left it there.
