    Gad! I just wish I had the space to leave one of my two enlargers up permanently. 10! Gadzooks!

    Oh, and given the choice, it would be the Beseler. It Mo' Bigger.
    Thank you.

    If I had additional carriers for each size, I would semi-permanently (i.e. tape) standard negatives in one of each size, and use them with an enlarging meter to help set up my test print times for each negative I printed.

    Also, if I had different types of carriers in the same size (glassless, with glass and the roll carriers) I would keep at least one of each.

    If you have more than four carriers of a particular size (one with a standard neg, plus one each for the enlargers) the extras can be dispensed with.

    One carrier for each enlarger but masks as follows

    Laborator 1200 - 35mm, 6x4.5,6x6,6x9

    Modular 70 - 35mm, 6x4.5,6x6

    Mind you its a pain using 35mm and 6x6 with the Laborator

    Because the printing times tend to get very long?

    I print 35 and MF with the Laborator 1200 all the time. Not a problem at all if you have the right lenses and swap them out.

    One glass carrier that is the maximum size for your enlarger is all you need to cover all formats. The question is how many do you want?

    Well, I don't have ten (10) enlargers, just the three I set up, plus the two from my original darkroom:

    Beseler 23CII and Bogen x-35A (up to 8x10 print size) actually great for contact printing rolls in sleeves.

    Still have another D2 and just gave away a D3 a month ago.

    In leu of measurements and counts, here's a quick digi snap of my quantity

    Unless you plan on taking all that equipment with you when you kick, keep everything. The next owners will be much appreciative to have full setups. Your carriers may not be rare now...but 10,30,65 years down the road they may very well be.
    My Durst M600 isn't all that old, ask me how easy it is to find replacements...
