    Replacing glass in DeVere 5108 film carrier

    One of the sheets of glass in my DeVere negative carrier has developed a crack on one side, and is chipped on one corner. Although the solution is obviously to replace the sheet of glass; has anyone come across issues concerning type of glass etc?

    I have the same enlarger and use it without any glass, and have no problems. Perhaps you could just use glass in the lower part of the carrier.

    How do you keep the film flat?

    It seems to stay flat naturally, never had a problem.

    Tom, I bought some new glass for my 5x4 from Oddyssey last year.

    Thet seem to have a good supply of serviceable items.
