X-pan negative carrier for a customer
I just finished making a neg carrier for a customers Durst 1200 enlarger. He did not want the springs in it like the original and I have not got my anodizing tank set up yet so it is bare aluminum. That inside chamfer on the side opposite the neg stage was a bear.

Xpan Solution for Beseler 23C
As I'm planning on getting an Xpan camera soon, I needed an Xpan negative carrier for my Beseler 23C enlarger. But Beseler doesn't make one.
No problem, I bought a standard 35mm negative carrier off of ebay (8053) for $10 and sent it to SK Grimes. For $65 they machined it out to 24mm x 65mm. They did a super job!
This is cheap considering that the Beseler 4x5 Xpan carrier is $170 from B&H!
Any enlarger that can do 6x7 and that has a 35mm negative carrier can be modified in this way to handle Xpan negatives.
