    Anyone using this contact frame?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Contact-Printing...QQcmdZViewItem

    These are offered in many sizes and I am considering the 9x18 size. Any comments from first-hand users? Resonable price but are they any good?

    Thanks

    Daniel, do not have one of these..but do have one like it from Dan Pelland (APUG member). Was looking at these on ebay, when Dan joined and I ended up going with his. Others here can give you their thoughts on other makes, but I am very happy with Dan's. Try and PM him to see what he might charge for a 9x18.

    One other thing, the best advice I have been given at these size is to go with a vacuum easel, rather than pressure type.

    Hi Daniel

    Yes I have one of these contact printing frames. I bought an 8x10 to make 8x10 contacts. The quality is vert nice but I do have one complaint. The frame puts a white boarder around the print. At first I liked the white but now I don't. I find it hard (impossible really) to keep the boarder even around the print. I could have solved this by purchasing an 11x14 frame to do my 8x10's in the middle.

    Overall I like the workmanship but don't use the frame much because I find the white boarder annoying.

    Again the quality is great.
