enlarger light source-happy ending

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I recently posted a question asking for advice about a replacement light source for a cold cathode head for an old Lines and Jones enlarger that I had ordered but had been broken in transit. The shop couldn't find a replacement as it's about 40 years old. They refunded my money and told me to keep it as they didn't want it back. Several people suggested an Aristo replacement and they had one almost the same dimensions but it was going to be about $300.00 all in. Pete Andrews suggested a Mustek transparency adaptor, tracked one down and reserved it for me. It arrived today cost, 50.00 and after a couple of minutes with a hacksaw fits perfectly well for my needs. The light source is even and bright, so LF b/w printing is alive and hopefully well in Yorkshire. Thanks Pete. Oh and it's going to cost me a beer as well.
