R: [Rollei] Omag enlarger.

Hi Jose.
As far as I know, Leica Geosystems never made enlargers: in fact, this is
the name of the company resulting from the merger of the former
Wild-Heerbrugg, Kern-Swiss and Leica (at least that branch of Leica which
made surveying equipment, like thodolites, transits, levels and similar

Leica enlargers were made by another branch of Leica (the guys who also make
cameras), but I don't know an enlarger called Omag; I heard of Focomat and
Valoy enlargers, but no Omag.
