Are replacement lamps available for Minox enlargers? If yes, where? TIA Ron Rueb OKC/OK

Ron, I believe so, but it may not be a stocked item. I have a thread about Dr. Fischer bulb in which I provided several places from which you can enquired about it

The Fischer bulb is not cheap. Some one paid more than $60 on eBay for one bulb.(eBay price is sometimes crazy, but it reflected how urgent when some one really needed it

Does your enlarger really need it ? If your enlarger does not have a collimator, you may not need it.

On the other hand, if your enlarger need this bulb, then buy one more extra for backup.

The "Dr. Fischer Bulb" thread and "Minox enlarger illumination system" thread contains the most complete information about Fischer bulb which you cannot find any where else on the web, or in any book. It covers, why the bulb is needed, how it looks, where to buy it, and what part of enlarger is crucial for use of the bulb, then it provied several URL address from which you can buy the Fischer bulb; it also covers what to do if you cannot find the specific bulb, what kind of substitute bulb is available and where to buy.

If you search for "Fischer bulb" with Yahoo, it cannot find anything; you get one answer with AltaVista--- you guess where it leads to ?.

Provide hard to find information, that is what Minox Photography Forum is all about.

The Dr Fischer bulbs for the Minox enlargers are available from the Minox Processing Lab although they are not listed on their website or in their printed pricelist. Give them a phone call (800-645-8172). In Aug 1999 I paid $37.50 for one--much cheaper than $60 on eBay.
