    wager123,
    I fabricated one from masonite(1/8") and put it between the head and neg stage. I use an old gel holder from a Norman light to hold the VC filters.

    Basically it's three layers of hardboard with the center one being sandwiched between the top & bottom which are cut out using a fly cutter.
    Rotozip or router would also work

    Just a question. Why did you replace the head with a cold-light?
