    I am new to photography and I recently received a saunders enlarger. Sorry but I do not remember the model number of the saunders because it is in my darkroom which is in another location.

    Anyhow there is something I am uncertain about when it comes to printing a photo on this enlarger. The link below leads to a picture of a VCCE module on the saunders model that I have.

    My friend advises me that when I use the saunders I should switch the lever to print when I am about to make a final photo. Naturally I will need a test strip in order to determine the amount of exposure time. So I was wondering when making a test strip for a photo(with the intention of setting the lever to print instead of focus for the final photo)should I make the test strip while keeping the lever on print?
