    accessories for de vere enlargers

    i just bought a de vere 504 dichromat on the auction site, but it doesn't have any negative carriers or lens boards. the only source i've found is odyssey, which has some stuff that comes with the enlargers, but nothing on its own. their prices are also rather high.

    all i need are two negative carriers and two lens boards for 4x5 and 6x9. where am i going to get them?

    Are you in the UK? If so (aside from Odyssey) try:

    There's usually plenty on Ebay. Ive bought lens boards quite cheaply.

    Yes, eBay often had a good turnover of Devere bits and pieces whenever I was looking for them. Unsurprisingly the bits are mostly in the UK, although I found an unused neg carrier in Canada a few years ago.

    As others have said, there's a reasonable turnover of De Vere stuff on ebay. I agree that Odyssey are nearly always more expensive, but they have always had the items that I wanted, when I wanted them, not when someone else decided they wanted rid of them

    As a guide, in Nov '09 I bought the following from Odyssey:
    Recessed lens panel for 40mm (and wider) lenses - £35
    35mm neg mask - £25.

    Just as an aside, I found out when talking to John(??) at Odyssey that there are two recessed lens panels - the 'slightly recessed' one, which seems to be for lenses >=50mm.
    The other one is the sunken lens panel, for lenses <40mm.

    Hope this helps!
    Cheers,

    Jim.

    wow, thanks for all the links. i'm in the us, but second hand darkroom looks like a treasure trove of goodies.

    i'll also keep an eye on ebay.co.uk. is this the right negative carrier?

    I picked up a 6x4.5 neg carrier from Second Hand Darkroom, a lens mounted on a lens board at a Sydney auction, seek and you may find.

    The UK is probably the happiest hunting ground, but De Vere seem to have been fairly common in a number of ex UK Colonies (that is the ones which didn't have a tea party)

    Good luck - Ross

    Raizans, I'm not sure whether that neg carrier you have linked to is correct. It's NOT the right one for my 504 (Dichromat IV head). See attached images of the neg carrier for mine.

    The attached images are very, very low res, but hopefully they'll give you some idea for comparison.

    Hope this helps.
