    Hi all,

    Anybody know where I can pick up a 6x7 carrier for a Rollei RDE enlarger?

    I have heard somewhere that another make fits but cant seem to find them either!!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Probably ebay would be your best bet. Some of the Rollei's are actually made by LPL in Japan, but there may be different variants of negative carriers, depending on the age.

    Re: ebay, just type LPL in the search box and then narrow it down by selecting the darkroom equipment category.

    I have a Rollei/Nikor/LPL and searched eBay for months till some eventually turned up They are out there, and turn up now and then. I ended up buying the three (6x4.5,6x6,6x7) carriers. Maybe LPL in Japan will have carriers if your search turns up nothing.
    I pulled out the styrofoam diffuser in the dichro head that was meant for 35mm and lined the area with thin styrofoam needed for the bigger neg. Very easy and the light was perfectly even on the print.

    Just saw the picture of the Rollei RDE. Exactly the same enlarger as my Nikor-Rollei.
