    I was recently able to acquire a good condition Omega D5XL Pro Lab with condenser. I think I paid $40 for it because it was missing the variable condenser lens. Y'know the thing that goes in the lamphouse, you change the slot it's on when you change lenses from 35mm to 4x5.

    I'm not in a great hurry because I have a very old Beseler 45M condenser that I use when my excellent medium format diffusion enlarger doesn't fit the bill. Willing to trade some kind of gear of equal value - have a great array of stuff - lmk what accessories you might be looking for.

    If you don't have one any ideas where to source one from?

    Would like to get other accessories for the Omega D5. I know of a photo lab that has 20+ of these enlargers but they're unwilling to part with one (for now at least).

    Is it the same as the one for the D-3 variable condenser lamphouse? If so, I have a spare I picked up for $50 at a swap meet. And I recently picked up a used D5 so I use the D3 less than I used to. I'm really trying to downsize but would could consider a swap.

    I have an extra variable condenser(I actually have a full set of condensers) for your D-5. What do you have to swap for it(or them)?

    Wow, you guys got back to me quick! Apologies for being slow, I seem to have missed notifications.

    @darkroommike I'm not sure if it's the same. Probably? http://www.khbphotografix.com/omega/Enlargers/D5.htm shows:
    472-105 Variable Condenser Lens.
    It is a lens mounted in a square metal tray.
    You likely have the DV lamphouse http://www.khbphotografix.com/omega/Condenser/DV.htm
    This page lists the same part number:
    472-105 Single Condenser 4 11/16" dia., mounted for DV lamphouse
    http://www.khbphotografix.com/omega/Enlargers/D3.htm also lists:
    472-105 Single Condenser 411/16" dia., mounted for DV lamphouse


    @Rick A you have a full set? Great!

    I'd be willing to trade ... about anything of roughly equal value. I have photo gear in all formats. In darkroom, I have some extra enlarging lenses, large tray of odds / ends, a vast supply of (mostly tested) paper - ra4 and b/w, fresh chemicals. I guess PM me any area of interest and I'll try and match something up.
