Hi all, My name is Tony, I just build a darkroom with some friend. We have no experience and heaps of question! We bought a Durst AC800 enlarger and it came dismantled. the counterweight spring at the back of the column was as well apart. I put everything back together but can t figure out how to put the counterweight spring. As a result i cant simply use the grip to move the head up and down. I can t find anything on internet about it.

Thanks!

Search this string: Durst AC800 schematic

First few hits have links to two different instruction manuals for the enlarger.

The user s manual is but not the service manual. they do explain how to change the counterweight spring but it s different on the AC 800.

This is also a fun read for whenever you get that Durst working...

My first enlarger was a Durst and they are pretty nice so I hope you can install the spring and start using it.
