Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Lamp

Needs 2x 120V 300W lightbulbs - these are specialist lightbulbs even though they look similar to normal ones.

Available to buy from: http://www.ag-photographic.co.uk/120v-300w-elh-2050-p.asp

Both lightbulbs need to be installed and working for the enlarger to produce the correct colour for your multigrade paper. To check if both bulbs work:

  1. Set grade to 0, press expose, you should see the image with a blue-ish tint
  2. Set grade to 5, press expose, you should see the image with a strong magenta tint

Instructions for replacing the lightbulbs are in the manual.
