Minox B

"I have just started using black and white with a Minox B. Not wishing to invest too much money initially, I bought an 18mm Pentax lens from a 110 SLR. It was fairly easy to mount using the plastic keeper supplied with the lens. This performs very well even though it always works at its full aperture of f2.8. I have made some quite good 9x7 inch prints this way from Minopan 100 film developed in Ilford Ilfosol S at 1:9 dilution. At the moment, I have to use a glass negative carrier and you can imagine the problems with dust and Newton's rings. I plan to make an insert for the 35mm negative carrier on my Durst M601 enlarger - any tips?."
