    I'm guessing there is a filter drawer between your condenser lenses that holds 3 1/2 inch filters. If so, this should do the trick: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ILFORD-MULTI...item19e15997c3

    It doesn't matter if they are a little dirty or abused.

    Make sure that you get the newer editions 1995 or later as the original books were greatly expanded and now cover much more material.

    Get a new set of filters from Freestyle or someplace, they don't last forever and you don't need any problems from faded or burned out filters. It's worth it.

    Actually, I do--I normally use the 6" sheets now, so the 3.5" filter set I have doesn't get much use. I think I paid $15 for the set a few years ago, so I'd be willing to part with them for cheap. Send me a pm.

    Ok, thanks so much to everybody that posted here. I dig out my enlarger today, and put both filters I had in the drawer. I then exposed at f8 for 16 seconds, developed for 2 minutes, fixed for 2 minutes, then washed for 3 minutes. Not perfect, but miles better than what I had:

    Getting deeper blacks

    Surprise, it works for 8x10s too! Just double plus 2/10 and you're good to go...

    Nice!

    Another tip on a good book to read: Way Beyond Monochrome (isbn-13: 978-0240816258)

    I've read The Negative/The Print but I find WBM to be more concise, more coherent and easier to read. Not all parts of the book is relevant but there is a wealth of relevant knowledge to be found, especially on printing and creating a good negative.

    Make sure you get the second edition. A superb textbook for your library.
