    Just picked up a "Patersons Colour Darkroom" kit at a car boot
    sale. The price was (very!) right - a fiver, although
    the kit is missing its dev. tank.

    I found a magnifying glass in a plastic mount in the box.
    Is this the collimating lens for the Enlarger?

    The manual says the enlarger is a "Colour 35" and that
    there is a separate manual. Sadly this is now missing.

    Does anyone have a manual for this, or know where
    I might get one?

    Finally, does anyone kno when this kit/enlarger was made?

  2. Might be very hard to tell, Paterson is still in business and still selling
    a similar kit. You should be able to find them with a google search.

    Anyone who sells darkroom equipment should have Paterson tanks. They are
    IMHO the best, though that thread could take weeks :)
