    Best 2 Blade Money Can Buy?

    I could use a Top Quality 2 Blade.
    Does such an easel exist? My
    current is a Bogen. Dan

    Airquipt made a nice one, also Saunders, though the Saunders 4 blades are more common.
    Both are leaps and bounds beyond the Bogen.

    I have Saunders in both two and four blade 11"x14" , both excellent quality. I also have a Hansa two blade whih is decent, almost as good as the Saunders. I prefer the four blade
    , even though harder to set up, it doesnt hang off the base of my enlarger with 8x10 and smaller.

    I've never used one, but Photon Beard supposedly made some outstanding 2 blade easels. I used to own one of their 4 blade models and it was awesome.
