    ...get the negative carrier to perfectly line up in the same place every time you insert it? The carrier just rotates, as I'm sure it's designed to do, but...

    I've been working with this enlarger for years and have always wondered about this...

    The older D series machines had alignment pins that the two slots on the carrier mated to. Later on the company realized it better to be able to rotate the carrier for convenience of easel palcement on the pittifully small base.
