Focomat IIC negative and filter holder? : LUSENET : Darkroom Technique : One Thread

I just inherited a Leitz Focomat IIC which is in excellent condition ecxept that it lacks a proper 35mm negative carrier and has no filter holder in the lamp housing. Can anyone suggest where I can get these things, and/or how best to retofit so I can use polycontrast filters?

Just call E. Leitz in Rockleigh, N.J. (201-767-8303) and ask for "Leica Parts." They're great about scrounging up old and esoteric parts. I have a vintage and mint 1C and replaced a missing filter holder in this manner. Meanwhile, feel confident, you now own the best enlarger ever made--period.
