    I am looking for a good clean 35mm mixing box / chamber for my LPL 4550 XLG, the one with the condenser lens.

    If you have one to part with drop me a PM.

    PKM - have you tried it with the 4x5 mixing box? I never had a problem with excessively long exposure times with 35mm using the 4x5 mixing box - although it obviously depends how big the enlargement is. I guess if you're enlarging 35mm to bigger than say 11x14 you might benefit from the 35mm mixing box. Just posting my two cents here in case it can save you a few $$.

    It works fine with prints up to 11x14, but I use my enlarger to make prints up to 20x24 and need to be able to for all formats, 2.5 stops is a *lot* of light at 20x24. So many people say that darkroom stuff is being given away which is true to a degree. But not the really good stuff, it is getting harder to find every day...

    I am getting so frustrated by this. The 35mm and even the 6x7 mixing chambers were a lot easier to get this time last year and now they have totally vanished....it makes me want to get rid of the effing enlarger!
