    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

    Thanks
    Reinhold

    Hey Reinhold,

    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.
    B 179mm
    C 218mm
    D 178mm
    E 61mm
    F 61mm

    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

    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.
    just curious.

    I hope it's not an adjustable pin registration/masking carrier with Schneider MRC-coated glass. I already built that

    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.
