Here are two versions of the user manual for the Ahel 1245 enlarger in French, which is capable of enlarging 35mm up to 4" x 5".

The larger file (3.9MB) refuses to upload from my computer or from the URL of the site, so here's the link to the pdf on the website.

I live in France for part of the year and I have twice encountered Ahel enlargers in commercial darkrooms. They are quirky in design, much like French cars of the fifties, but work well in a cramped darkroom because the one device can cope with whatever format comes in the door. But one user, sadly now closed down, complained of the finnicky height adjustments -- coarse and fine.

From an engineering point of view the Ahel is an interesting application of (then novel) aluminium extrusion technology.
