Default Nottingham Calling

Hello from Nottingham. Brief intro, I've been learning and practicing for the last 12 months printing b+w on a DeVere 504 at a community darkroom (Make It Easy Lab). Just light proofed my spare bedroom and bought an LPL C7700MX. Seems I've fallen down the rabbit hole...

Welcome aboard Dave.

The rabbit hole is deep, and very, very, dark...

Cheers, Bob.

Welcome Dave.

If you are not sure about anything just ask away here.

The LPL is a very capable enlarger and it will give you many happy hours printing over the coming years.

Welcome Dave.

Ask any questions you like Dave.

We are a friendly lot.

The only stupid questions are the ones you never ask.

Wow so many responses! Thanks all. So I need to buy a lens to cover 6x7, enlarging to a maximum of 16x20 but usually just 10x12. Would an 80mm cover the diagonal sufficiently? Or do I need something longer. As well as RZ67 I shoot square with Minolta Autocord, so a lens that works well for both would be ideal. I don't do 6x9.
