    Glass plates and Beseler 45

    Hi all,

    I have some old glass plates and want to know what type of negative carrier to use so i can enlarge them in my beseler 45. I have a 45 carrier, but what with these plates being glass, the carrier won't fold down flush.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I did some glass plates years ago, get yourself an omega 4x5 carrier , the one that comes apart. worked great.

    it will fit the besler 45

    The simplest method is to fold a piece of shirt board in half, cut out the mask opening, and sandwich the plate inside.

    something witty and profound needs to be inserted here...
