    DeVere 5108 negative carrier

    So I was able to figure out that I can, in fact, get this enlarger home. I knew before I bought it that it does not include a negative carrier and I will need to get or make one. I have a few months before I can actually use this thing, so I am not in any hurry, but is anyone able to take a few pictures of theirs and post it here so I know what it is supposed to look like? A google search pulls up nothing. If so, could you put up a picture of the top, the bottom, and with it laid open? Thanks to everyone that helped me figure out how to get this beast home!

    For those of you with this enlarger, I am about to start making my own negative carrier since I cannot find one to purchase. Can someone tell me if the factory one has a ridge on the bottom to create a light trap in the enlarger? Or is it smooth bottomed? Thanks for any help.

    Greg, I use two pieces of glass, window glass on the bottom and non glare framing glass on the top with a tape hinge and a little loop of tape to pull it in and out of the enlarger. It works perfectly. I have them for 8x10 negs and for 5x7 negs. I have placed a piece of masking tape on the bottom glass to locate the sheet..Evan Clarke

    Thanks, Dale. I have seen pictures of the top and the inside, but not the bottom. I am not going to use original DeVere glass in my own carrier simply because it does not allow for printing the film edge if I so desire. That is not something I do very often, but I don't want to be restricted if the mood strikes.

    Just glass on the bottom and cutouts from black plastic and some from cardboard on top works for me

    That's the nice thing about the glass sandwich, you can do almost anything you want...EC

    Dale, did you ever find those pictures? I still need to see the bottom side.
