Just bumping this up. It's a MF 6x6 enlarger in good condition. Just looking for a reasonable price for it and want it to get some use. Sadly I don't have space for 2 enlargers in my darkroom.

Indeed it is - but it seems the effects of fogging take around a year to appear. I read this elsewhere and it does match what I'm seeing too. SO i could import 6 months supply at a time.

I suspect it is a supply / demand situation. Even the film that Silverprint stock is 17 EUR on European websites, ie. there is a 60% markup in the UK.

I think a restrainer won't work, since the fog is not even, it's typical x-ray fog with wavy patterns.

I saw this, but actually not too concerned about the expiry. Litho film tends to work fine years past its expiry.

I've not thought to add a restrainer, will take a look at this. I tried pulling...

Ortho Litho film

Hi All

I occasionally produce masks (for contrast manipulation) for darkroom printing. About 18months ago I imported 4 boxes of Arista Ortho Litho 4x5 film from the US. I've produced masks with it...

Yes this is what I got, at a good price from Bristol cameras. Mostly I need to wash 4-5 identical prints at a time after fix, selenium and then toning.

I'm wondering how well it will work for me...

Kaiser V6005 with Condenser and Diffuser Heads

Nice clean enlarger than hasn't seen much use. I upsized to a Devere 504 about a year after getting the Kaiser so haven't needed to use it that much.

Have both the condenser head and the colour...
