I have this enlarger and like it a lot.  I use it for 35mm and 4x5.  It is 
quite precise  (after adjustment) and easy to use.  The bit about it being 
permanently aligned is a bit of a crock in my opinion.  My came from the 
factory unaligned.  After a few phone calls to Saunders I found someone who 
told me how to align it-everyone else said to return it to them.  I use a 
Parallel laser guided alignment tool by Versalab which I highly recommend.  
The whole process takes about 10 minutes and the judicial use of shims.  
After getting it set up I couldn't be happier.
