    Source for Negative Carrier Glass

    I need to buy some glass for a Durst nega138 negative carrier. I'd like to buy suitable glass but not go crazy $ wise. Possible?

    I made my glass inserts for my Durst enlarger from some outdated FP4 glass plates I bought in 1976 or 7. They are still perfect 30+ years later.

    Extremely eay

    I agree with Jon , these are great people to deal with . All my glass is purchased from them, in fact there is a dealer of glass 30km from me but I prefer to use these people.

    Thanks for the positive reinforcement. I've never used a glass carrier before.

    What are the benefits of Anti-Newton glass and should I buy 2 sheets of AN or 1 AN and 1 'non AN' and which should be on top?

    Most emulsions will not create Newton rings
    against plain glass. (Tech Pan did and there
    may be others, but it's not an issue with the
    Foma and Tri-X films I use.) But the film
    base surely will. So, you can probably make
    do with one sheet of plain glass, and one of
    ANG, depending on your film of choice.

    Hi, the AN glass would go on the top only. Plain glass below.
