    Randy, that sounds like a good idea using mat board. That way I can custom make my own for whatever I want to print, including 110 film or whatnot.

    Thanks for the tip!

    No problem. It makes filing out a carrier much less troublesome and certainly less expensive too.

    Variable contrast paper is made by at least six vendors, worldwide, but Kodak stopped b/w paper manufacturing, so it would stand to reason it has discontinued its filter sets.

    All variable contrast filter sets work with all variable contrast paper, regardless of brand, but not all brands of filters will give exactly the same contrast with all papers. This is of no consequence in reality.

    I started cleaning up my basement tonight (an epic undertaking) and got an eyeball on my enlarger. It is in fact a condenser head enlarger and the quality looks really nice. So I'm definitely going to give it a go. And the above post was also correct in that it has a filter tray, so I could use gels up above the condenser lens, which would be easier for me to keep from damaging.
