    Two suggestions:

    1) Will the thumb screws hold both the 421-109 and the intermediate spacer to the slide in lens mount (without using the black screws? or
    2) Can you use the black screws the other way - i.e. with the heads on the top, and the threads pointing up?

    1. Nope, the threaded holes don't line up. My first thought was to put the 109 right into the flat holder, but can't.
    2. Nope, the holes are recessed on one side for the screw heads, and the holder will only go in flat side up.

    Kind of off topic but not worthy of a new thread ... the newer Saunders and Omega neg carriers are interchangeable right? Since Omega owns saunders now .... on the 4x5 enlargers anyhow.

    And yes the 421-107 is supposed to have two spacers in it. No, it cannot funtion as is. Make a spacer out of matboard until you can find a proper one.

    And if it will fit, I have a 404-867 turret, 421-109 mount and a 4 hole spacer. I took it off a D5XL that I scrapped. Send a PM if interested.

    Well ... it does. I simply got two extra screws and cut them down so they aren't too long any more Seemed like the simple solution to me.

    Glad you found a simple solution. If you use other lenses on it make sure the rear element doesn't stick up higher then the lens board. Scraping the glass will be more painful then hiting the long screws was. I suspect this is the reason for the spacer.

    Well, I don't slide it in with the lens attached ... that's what the mounts with the thumbscrews are for ... I just leave the flat mount in the enlarger then attach lenses as needed with the thumbscrews and appropriate plates, like on many other Omega enlargers.

    I expect Omega expects you to slide the plate out for the purpose of changing lenses - thus the need to ensure that the back of the lens clears the enlarger's frame.
