    Hi, I just bought a used Saunders C6600 enlarger and was wondering if anyone could answer a couple of questions for me. Is there an on line manual available somewhere? Where exactly do you place filters for multi-contrast paper? The enlarger seems pretty straight forward but if anyone happens to know of any additional tips for using this enlarger it would be apreciated. Thanks.

    I'm not familiar with this specific enlarger, but as far as filters go, every enlarger I've worked with there has been a box above the bellows that the fron will open up (its on hinges) and you place the filters in there

    The front does open. The condensor fits in first and then there is another piece of plane glass mounted in a frame that slides in just above that. I'm guessing that filters are just placed above this piece of glass. Just wondering if heat might be a problem in that spot.

    You can always get filters that mount under the lens. That is what I have. And I do have a filter drawer.

    If you get gel filters (the thin plasticy ones), heat is not an issue. They are heat resistant. That's what they are made for.
