    Thought I might put the question out there to us APUGers here in Oz if they have a set of filters they do not need, or know of someone that has before I go and purchase off that auction site, or B&H.

    Having just recently aquired a large Durst I now need variable contrast filters for it. Or a colour head...

    Hey can I drop buy with a slab or something to swap for them. The Durst very happy in its new home, did not need to cut too much to fit it in, just had to move 1 ceiling light.

    Andy, how big do you need them? I have a spare set you can have but they are about 6 inch square I think.

    If Marc's got Andy sorted, is there any chance you might still have these filters for sale? I had a set given to me but they floated off the under lens holder thingy I had so I bought a smaller set with frames around them. Having been given that first set, I thought it only right to, in turn, pass them on to someone in need. Since then I've acquired an enlarger with a proper filter drawer... and no 6x6 filters. :blink:

    Molli, I'll throw them in the post for you. I'll head to PMs later today to confirm (and I'll reply to some other messages!:blink:).

    They aren't the cleanest things around but they do the job. I haven't noticed any problems.
    P.S I haven't heard from Andrew so I s'pose he's sorted.

    An old set

    I have a set in Quinninup that has not been used for a long time, a very long time

    They're pretty much the same as the ones I bought to replace the sheets. I needed the extra weight of the frame to allow me to just sit them on the under-the-lens red filter (removed) since my enlarger was made before variable contrast paper came about (i.e. no contingency made for any filter use at all).

    Yours, however, look much funkier than mine :smile:

    New ones by post from USA

    Hello,

    Here is a sensible answer, after my offer of early 1960s Multigrade filters - Yesterday the Photo Warehouse catalogue arrived from Ultrafine Online (eBay seller ultrafineonline 12729)

    In this are offered three sizes of multigrade filters fairly cheaply, 'though the original manufacturer is of course not stated - I have now made two purchases from this company and both have been good - Unfortunately I put the catalogue on my office desk, so there is no chance of finding it again

    PS, Catalogue details

    The Varigrade filters seller's URL is www.ultrafineonline.com - email orders are orders@ultrafineonline.com

    The cataloge arrived with the Quinninup Kids Club LomoKino camera and includes a few good things as well as lots of silly toys, unfortunately tempting silly toys - On which subject the 1960s filters are still on offer

    Just thought I would add my 2 cents worth as well. I have a spare set of the smaller ilford filters which are good if anyone needs them. Will pop them in the post if required.
