    The mask can offer as much flattening help as any open holder can give. I have never had a newton ring problem with any of the glass negative holders I have used, and they are good for lots of sizes. keep an eye out- they do show up sometimes as part of larger darkroom clean outs. I have picked up lots of what I use by being willing to take more than I need. I then pass it on to others who can use it.

    Good point. I have done that, but no 4x5 glass carrier yet.

    Problem is the orphan enlargers you end up with. I now have 2 enlargers in my darkroom (there's really only room for one) plus 3 in the attic over my garage. I even tried giving one (a B22) away, no takers. If you scrap them, you end up in analog hell after you die, so you can't do that either.

    If I rescue yet another one, I may have to save the key parts (like heads, carriers, etc) and scrap the frame and baseboard. But that just seems to be such a waste. But perhaps it keeps an entire enlarger out of the trash.
