Does anyone know if there is a cover available for the Saunders LPL 4550? In the past I used the same cover for the green egg ceramic cooker on my old Omega enlarger. Before I experiment around, has anyone used a cover for their Saunders?

All I have ever used is plastic trash bags.

They don't list enlarger covers, but https://www.digitaldeckcovers.com/ could probably make one to your spec for a very reasonable price, especially if it's a relatively simple shape. Send them dimensions. Everything is made to order, and shipping is pretty quick (1-2 weeks). Just bought a cover for the Epson 750M (for which they do have dimensions) - very happy with it.

I don't have a cover on my LPL 4500II as it's in fairly steady use and fortunately I don't have major dust problems with it.

The Beseler 23CII that's sitting on cinderblocks just outside my darkroom is covered by a trash bag. Many years ago when I got my first enlarger, an Omega C700, I figured I'd be a good boy and I ordered the dust cover listed in Omega's catalog. Turned out to be more or less a heavy-duty trash bag with a logo. At least we didn't pay very much.

I went for the fancy Blue Bag version complete with draw string!
