    WTB: Negative carriers for LPL/Saunders 4x5 enlarger

    I am looking for negative carriers for an LPL/Saunders 4x5 enlarger. Specifically I have the 4550XLG but I understand that a number of Omega, LPL and Saunders use the same system. My priority is the large format 4x5 carrier but also looking for medium format 6x4.5 and 6x9 carriers. Thanks!

    I've a few Omega bits, but they're in Tasmania, which is about as far from Whitehorse as it's possible to be. PM me if you don't have luck elsewhere.

    The XLG is a real joy to work with, isn't it?

    If you can find the 4x5 glass carrier, it's worth the bucks. I use mine with black masks for almost everything I print.

    You can DIY a carrier
    : have a piece of single strength glass cut to the full size of your negative stage. Then have a thin piece of plexy cut to the same size. Tape one edge of the two pieces together to make a hinged sandwich. Finally, cut a piece of black construction paper to the same size as the glass/plexy sandwich and cut an opening in the construction paper to the appropriate size for your negative. You now have a negative carrier and it's cheap. It has the advantage of keeping the negative very flat--no popping. Just make sure you keep all surfaces clean.

    Looks like I have everything I need lined up. As usual APUG delivers, thanks everyone!

    Thanks for the tip Keith on DIY I may do that for interim 4x5 printing until my carriers arrive in the mail.

    Tony,
