    Great custom glass cutting service from FPoint on ebay

    After the purchase of my Devere 507 enlarger I needed to find some glass for my what I thought was a 5x7 film holder (but actually turned out to be 1/2 plate) and I decided to get a piece of AN glass for the 4x5 holder too (I already had 2 pieces of plain 4x5 fitting glass). I initially contacted Odyessy Sales but after an initial contact I heard nothing from them again for a few weeks (even after further emails and a telephone call) I decided to look elsewhere for my needs.

    I was looking through an ebay search for Devere items and I came across an auction for a 4x5 AN Glass, in the add it also stated that they could do custom sizes. I contacted Mike (FPoint) and requested a pair of AN Glasses and a pair of plain glasses (1 spare of each) to fit the Devere 1/2 plate holder I had.

    The glass arrived earlier this week and a very good job had been done on them. The Bezels were perfect as was the size and I now have a fully functional 1/2 plate (which I shall be using for 5x7) carrier with AN glass on top and plain glass on the bottom.

    So if you are in need of some custom cut glass for a negative holder then I can recommend Mike (FPoint) for his great service, and good work.

    At their website I do not find anything film related, let alone something about custom cut AN glass.

    I've ordered via their web-shop at http://ehub36.webhostinghub.com/~fpo...tore/agora.cgi
    If you need something not listed, e-mail Mike and he'll add it for you.

    Perhaps you visited the wrong website. Isn't Enlarger Glass film related?

    I've purchased from Focal Point twice - in each case I wanted a large piece of glass cut to specified size with edges beveled for safe handling in contact printing sheet film negatives. The product and service were entirely satisfactory both times.

    I too have bought from Focal Point. I seem to remember stock sizes are much cheaper than custom. Their service is great, and shipping to UK no problem.

    They've been doing custom stuff for years, including AN glass. Very nice people to work with and reasonably priced.
