Thank you all!

I spent today dismantling and cleaning the Durst M800 enlarger - there were a few cobwebs and a spider's skin inside the head. I'm going to live with the rust spots since it seems to be working okay. A bit of silicone lubricant has got all the moving parts on the column working much more smoothly and I tested the new 32mm recessed lens panel with a 30mm lens and it works well - ready for the Minox 8x11 negs.

I'm still collecting bits for the darkroom (but I'm not yet sure where to put the enlarger). I have my eye on the "Harry Potter" (what we jokingly call the understairs cupboard in our family) but it will take some negotiating!
