    Howdy,

    My new enlarger necessitates 6" VC filters to fit between the condenser glasses. I've currently got a set of Ilford 3.5" filters and I'd love to find someone who happens to have 6" but needs 3.5".

    I know, I know, that's like meeting your future wife in a bar... but hey!... it could happen.

    :laugh:

    I also have a Kodak Polycontrast set, same size, that I'd throw in, incase you needed to cut up a set for another use, or something. I have lots of random stuff that I'd be glad to trade for, just let me know what you're looking for.

    Alternatively, I'd buy a set for less than $25 (cheapest set on eBay).

    Thanks

    Let me check at the lab tonight when i go into class, I am sure i have a set i can sell for the school as almost all enlargers these days have dial in filters.

    However, we don't need the smaller size as we must have at least a half dozen of those. They seem to multiply like "trebles"

    Ann, that sounds great. I'd really appreciate it. Buying is fine, I can always sell the ones I have.

    Let me know what you find, cheers!

    Got a set of Ilford 6" that I never use - Don't need 3.5" (got a set of those too). However, I would be interested in a trade for say a set of Marshall's Photo Oils with maybe a cash adjustment.

    I've got a set of under the lens Ilford filters if that helps you. Also have the filter holder that attaches to the lens. PM if interested- I will let them go for postage.
