    Negative Carrier question

    Hey there.
    I am a total beginner to the whole darkroom thing, but so far it is looking pretty damn sweet.
    Anyways, I got myself a Hansa Prisma enlarger along with the typical Craigslist flush of darkroom gear. I am putting stuff together to start using it. The first big problem is that the negative carrier that came with my enlarger is a medium format one and I need a 35mm one. Do any of you suggest a good place to find one?
    I have tried ebay and might have a lead there with one, but i would like to see if maybe one you guys have one. I am willing to buy one by mail and pay through paypal, i am located in Montreal.
    The width of the carrier already on my enlarger is 129mm.
    Thanks in advance

    It's not a very common enlarger, at least not here in the United States, so picking up a negative carrier on eBay might be difficult. You might try cutting one out of mat board.

    Or two pieces of back-of-a-steno-pad grade cardboard.
    Thank you.

    Does this enlarger resemble the enlarger pictured here:

    If so, it may have been sold in the USA with the Bogen name.
