Saunders LPL Negative Carrier Dimensions
Can anyone provide the dimensions as noted on the attached photo?
Please use an accurate metal scale with 1mm increments.
A= Critical Dimension. Measure to nearest 1/2 mm.
(Diameter of opening in the hole in the enlargers base plate.)
B= Non Critical.* Measure to nearest full mm.
C= Non Critical.* Measure to nearest full mm.
D= Non Critical.
What is the maximum practical width possible?
E= Non Critical.
F= Non Critical
I'll try to work this up when I get home. What you got cooking? Something fancy for the LPL 4x5?
Having braved the spiders in the basement to find a metric ruler here's my take:
A - carrier 161mm baseplate 162mm dia.
As for you max width question. I don't see anything that would limit the width.
Carrier used is a LPL 3621-41EX 35mm glassless. Baseplate is from a Saunders/LPL 4550XL.
George, your sacrafice is gratefully received.
Now, after your hands quit shaking (or maybe to steady them) a dram or two is deserved.

Regarding the width, actually, the LPL carriers can be inserted sideways, so there would be a width limitation between the carrier and the column, if you were to maintain full compatibility. OTH, I've only used the feature a few times.
I can measure that later tonight if needed.
Any consideration of making carriers (inserts) for a Durst Femomask?
If anyone thinks LPL carriers are expensive, they are pocket change in comparison.
So, do we need to sign a non disclosure to find out? I own an XLG, so I'm definitely interested.

Don't forget the thickness limitation! I bought an Omega glass carrier for a backup and it was too thick to go into the slot. I am not near my enlarger right now to measure it otherwise I would. Something to look out for though.
Good point! That's a very tight fit with the LPL carriers.
