    I am looking for Omega D2 carriers, preferably glass, for 6x9 and 645. Any condition considered. Let me know.
    Thanks, Chris

    You can probably get away with one carrier. I always use a 6x6 carrier for 6x4.5 negs. The 6x9 would work just as well.

    And sorry, I don't have one :sad:

    They are easy to construct from mat board. I prefer glassless, easier to keep dust free, never had a neg pop, even up to 4x5.

    Thanks Rick,
    The method is tried and true. I have made glassless carriers from mat board and other materials from phenolic sheet to copper clad pc board stock to Teflon. I just found out that they never made one in 6x9, but have secured a 4x5 glass carrier which will do.

    I appreciate your time and effort,

    chris

    Thanks for your input . I have found that they never made a 6x9. I have secured a 4x5 glass carrier and that should do fine. Masks are easy to add on the back side.
    Regards,
    chris
