    That's looks like a solid setup. At least, I can't think of anything really missing, but it's been a while for me. Congrats on the win!

    It looked pretty complete if I remember correctly. I was thinking of adding a tiered tray (Leedal) set up to save space. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with them?

    it's very complete, yes. the only thing you may want to upgrade at some point is the enlarger lens for each format; they are middle of the road lenses.


    as far as the trays, i haven't used them. i use a running water stop, so i can't utilize them.

    enjoy....

    you want to look for 6 element lenses. you have 3 and 4 element lenses. your prints will look fine, so no worries, BUT you will notice a marked difference with a 6 element lens.

    if you stick with Schneider, look for the componon series. they are 6 element lenses.

    again, don't lose much sleep over it, but the difference will be apparent.

    Looks like a thorough setup. I just hope they don't hit you too bad with the shipping costs.
