    I used a enlarger for a short time that didn't have a filter holder above the neg. So I carefully placed the filter on the neg carrier above the neg. I never had a problem, the filter didn't touch the neg, I did check for that. It also never got hot.

    If you're using the D2V with the movable condenser The filters go in the same drawer as the variable condenser. If the older D2 (not V) you need to fabricate something. Putting the filters directly on top the neg carrier is asking for scratches. Putting them above the condenser is asking for rapid fading or possibly melting.
    Use the smaller filters beneath the lens if you don't have th V model

    Hence the reason I said get new ones if they are damaged.

    It says D2, but I do have the variable condenser head.

    Thanks.

    I put multigrade filters under the lens and they work just fine. In theory putting anything between the lens and the photographic paper should degrade the image but I checked.

    The easiest check was to focus the negative with a grain focuser, filter in and filter out, and compare the view. In both cases I saw sharp, clear grain and if every grain in the negative is imaged onto the enlarging paper then that's as sharp as you can get.

    Checking for flare was done by enlarging a good grade #2 negative without a filter and then with a #2 filter. Fine white lines on a dark background and fine dark lines on a light background were compared in both cases. I could not see a convincing difference.

    Smudged, scratched, or dusty filters would probably cause a difference but the position of the filter in the bright enlarger beam immediately under the lens makes these defects glaringly visible. Cleaning or replacing a bad filter is no chore compared to the alternative.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.
