L1200 Almost Ready

The L1200 Durst 4x5 should be up and running and printing in the next couple of weeks. I was held back because of lack of a proper negative carrier. I found one on EBay which I bought and it has been shipped along with some anti newton glass. My hope is that I can get this machine printing by September. I have two different heads for it a condenser head of some kind and also a colour head. This added tool will help the printing because the light source is quite a bit brighter which will help with my dense negs.

My friend Jack is also going to give me his lens that I can use in the printing process. You can never have enough free lens to print with, they all have slightly different sharpness and feels.
