    I have had a number of different frames over the years; older frames from Eastman, etc. made from hardwoods are good if not damaged. Many frames I've gotten off Ebay have been made of soft wood, not hardwood. Soft wood is a challenge because they shed wood fibers and collect dust, which also gets onto the negative. I currently use ancient Eastman contact frames for 8x10, 5x7 and 4x6 and a new 11x15 from Bostick & Sullivan, which appears to be designed to survive the zombie holocaust.

    I've got used ones. MJS is right, if you have a softwood one and it does not have metal to receive the spring clip, it will shed wood onto the negative when the clip abrades the frame. It takes patience to get good used ones on Ebay or a forum.
