Hello everyone,

I really need the operator's manual for the Durst M601 enlarger. I'd like
to get a photocopy of the contents and would reimburse anyone for the cost
of photocoping and postage. It would really help me out. The lenses and
other stuff are giving me trouble.

Thanks ahead of time. Oh, and please respond by email. cih...@cda.mrs.umn.edu

Very appreciative,

Look through Shutterbug mag for an ad from John S. Craig. He has
copies of manuals for just about anything.

I've had an M601 for the last 20 years. I'll look for the manual if you still
need one. Since you said your problem was lenses I'll sned my two cents.

My guess is that the condenser assembly is giving you fits. If it is...

You should have three condeser lenses.

2 of the lenses are the same, they are for 6 x 6 negatives. The third one has a
smaller piece of glass. The third one is the 35 mm condenser.

My guess is that you've already figured out how to open the condeser/light
assembly & know about the sliding l shaped bar that holds the condenser in place
(slot on the top and bottom).

If you doing 35 mm use the smaller lens. Put it in the tray so that the tabs on
the lens assembly align front to back. then slide the locking bar into place.

For the 6 x 6 condenser put the curved surfaces of the two parts toward each other
in the middle like so |)(|. Align the tabs on both units front to back and then
slide the locking assenbly in place.

Your durst should also have two lense boards. One for 35 & the other for the
75/80 mm lense. I think the deeper of the two is for the 35 mm, but I'll need to
check my unit to be sure.

Send me an address if you want me to dig for my book. Good luck.
