  I hadn't heard of hansa until I bought one:)All I know about the model you have is that it looks almost exactally like a vivitar enlarger.
as far as what to do with it? well use it to make photographs from negatives, because, well, its fun and that is what it is designed for. or heck, ship it to me if you dont want it. I am always looking for more equipment.
Anywho, Have fun whatever you do,

All kidding aside. I saw one for sale on the net for $300 USD. Not sure it's worth that because of the lack of people developing their own. Google "Hansa enlarger" and you'll see what I mean

Are you shooting film--I'm guessing so or the enlarger won't be of any use to you.

Were you asking how to process film and how to use for that process? Sorry for asking a basic question, but your original one wasn't clear.

If that is the question, I can recommend a couple of good books as a place to start and you'll need a few more bits and pieces.
