Subject: Valoy enlargers

Dear All

I am using a Leitz enlarger called a Voturn, basically a Valoy  I but for some reason it has a 
different nameplate (anyone know why?)  

Some time ago it was rewired and instead of wiring up the socket at the head of the chrome 
pole the wire just runs down to the switch in the side of the baseboard.  I would like to rewire 
it correctly but cannot work out how to release the socket from the top of the pole.  Anyone 
any suggestions?

Also wondering about fitting a longer pole as mine only runs up high enough for 10x8 - did 
Leitz ever make a longer one?
