At the present time become unneeded enlargers: not only because of the high cost and scarcity of photographic materials, but also wide distribution of “phocomelic” and laboratories for developing and printing.

For this purpose, suitable enlargers as the friction load of the projector and the suspension of the oscillating rods. Both of these options provide a smooth, effortless moving the projector up and down. Instead, using a clamp to be secured a drill.
