    WTB: 645 Negative Carrier for Beseler 45MXT

    Looking for a metal, OEM negative carrier for my Beseler 45 MXT; for 6X4.5cm negatives (I have a bunch from years past). I have home made ones for all the other formats and a OEM one for 4X5 but if someone happens to have a spare they aren't using please send me a PM or email with your asking price. Thanks!

    After looking up the cost of one of these carriers (Mfg # 8335) the cheapest I could find one is $118, BHPhoto wants $139. Kinda crazy pricing IMHO for two pieces of metal. There isn't even any anti-newton glass in the carrier. If anyone has the ability to cut a matte board to be a carrier for me I would be glad to pay for that too. I have several made like this that the previous owner of my Beseler enlarger gave me, but not one for 6X4.5cm....my luck. Anyway any help in this area is appreciated but I just cant pay over $100 for one of these, an alternative is my only alternative

    Beseler carriers go way cheaper than that on the big auction site. You may have to stalk for a while before a 645 one shows up, but they do from time to time.

    That site has become full of "stores" - people who list stuff at too-high prices on a permanent buy-it-now basis rather than auction format, in the hopes of snagging someone who thinks "let me see if I can find it on that site" and then they just go ahead and buy it when they find it. No, you need to keep checking, or even put in a "saved search" to have it email you when it finds one. Eventually one will come up for sale in a real auction format, and you can probably snag it for a more reasonable price.

    Until I get one I could do that Rick, I do have a 6X6 one made out of matte board that would work fine. Still want the real thing too though, I have a pretty big lot of 645 negs. Thanks for the idea.
