Most of my 645 MF enlargements are full frame on 8x10. Occasionally I print 9x12 inches for a wall mount.
When not using a speed easel I use one of two four blade easels. With a 33 inch/85cm column I expect the base of the column will obstruct the smaller Saunders 11x17 easel when printing 9x12 in a portrait orientation.
Ian's classic solution is not possible in the space I have. The ability to mask the negative in the carrier could allow the projection of clean negative borders onto a 11x14 speed easel.
Anyone use a speed easel as described with the M601?
What is the most convenient 4 blade easel to use for my size enlargements with a M601?
Does a M601 heat up with a 75W bulb?
My Saunders 670 XL head runs cool unlike an Omega B-22 which will pop negs.
