    Saunders LPL 4500 contrast control settings / grade equivalents?

    Hello-
    Been looking for a chart listing the grade equivalents for b/w contrast control on a Saunders LPL 4500.... that is, of course, what magenta / yellow settings are comparable to a particular contrast filter/grade...

    Specific settings are different for every brand/model of enlarger, right? Haven't been able to find one particular to the Saunders.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    The contrast settings should be on the instruction insert in your box of paper. IIRC Saunders/LPL use the Kodak CC numbers on their filter settings.

    Here is what I have taped to the front of my 4500. It's derived from Ilford's data sheet.

    You can make your own, like this. But really, unless you have an oddball enlarger or an oddball paper, you should not have to go to the trouble.
