All of this comes up on the auction site frequently. The neg carrier shouldn't cost over $20 and if you are patient: $10. In the meantime, use cardboard. Wait for a Time-o-Light or something like an Omega CT 10 timer. Cheap, but effective. Even a Gralab 300 will work, and you can use it to time film development too. They are plentiful - don't pay over $20.

Easels are inexplicably expensive. However, they seem to be coming down a bit. Look for a 4 blade 11x14. I've seen them go for less than $50 lately, which is better than the $100 they used to bring. Good luck.
