A Valloy is an early Leitz enlarger. I think mine is actually a Valloy II.
It's relatively light and small. Plus, it comes apart easily. I don't think
it was ever designed for transportation. I bought it 12-years ago. I needed
an enlarger that I could set up in a bathroom and take down easily. It uses
the same neg carrier as a Focomat 1c. I've seen a few Valloys for sale over
the years, but they always seem to be missing the carrier.

The suitcase enlarger sounds pretty cool!

What's a Leica Valloy? A few years ago I saw a small Russian enlarger
was built in to a very small suitcase. Pretty neat and like an idiot I
didn't buy it.
