I'm looking to set my BW darkroom back up in the next few months, but I'm trying to avoid setting up for 135 or 120, because I know that if I do, I'll wind up with more delays until I can do 4X5 work. Everything except the enlarger is small stuff, and I try not to sweat the small stuff. Unfortunately, as I'm sure everyone who's ever worked in the dark (and many who have not) knows, LF enlargers (and enlargers in general) tend to be pretty pricey. Shipping of heavy, bulky items to Fairbanks, Alaska, is no joke, either. So, I've been playing with ideas, ranging from skipping 4X5 and going to 8X10 and contact prints (HA!), buying the equipment locally (virtually zero results after asking around and searching classifieds and online), or building my own. The last option seems interesting to me for a number of reasons. So, has anyone every built an enlarger (of any size, but particularly for 4X5)? Using components, or fabricating your own? Condenser, diffusion, pinhole, other? What about parts? Substitutions? Ideas, anyone? I imagine quality work will require decent components as well as precision and attention to detail, but I know both of those pretty well, so I'm sure it's doable. Just looking for any advice based on experience or other ideas. And possibly relevant: at some point, not necessarily in the near future, I fully intend to process and print in color. It's down the road, but a consideration. Or maybe it's just 3:30am and I need to go to bed.
