    When I go my Durst 138 enlarger it came with a Kodak negative carrier. It has one piece of glass at what looks like the bottom and nothing else. I should have a top sheet of glass in a hinged holder of some kind I would think. Does anyone have one of these Kodak negative carriers?

    There are some negative carriers for some enlargers that just have one piece of glass by design. Perhaps yours is one?

    With one sheet of glass is the negative taped down or weighted down or just left there all half curled?
