    Oh, Bob! Have we not adopted the one beer between filter change regime?

    Ilford makes a filter set with filter holder that fits under the lens. Easy to swap filters for split grade printing. It can clamp onto the lens with 3 thumb screws or can hang from the lens board.

    I use the #10 slot with Ilford filters that I cut to size. I don't love it, but it works just fine for me.

    Hey, gang, just an update! I did end up just cutting the filters to fit in the drawer I have. It works plenty and doesn't affect image at all. I made little paper holders for them that work sufficiently. Thanks for the input!

    Although I have a set of the rigid resin (?) Ilford filters for UTL (Under The Lens) filtration -- both my MXII and CB7 have the swinging filter holder -- I try to use the BTC (Between The Condensers) filter slot for the reasons mentioned.

    The MXII has a filter holder/cradle for the BTC filters -- 6" filters -- which are easy to get.

    The CB7, however, does not have a filter holder/cradle for the BTC filters -- and takes 7" filters. The next largest size of Ilford filters I could find was 12" -- I guess they are for 8x10 enlargers. I got a "good enough" price on a set after searching forever, but they work just fine. Maybe when I find some time, I'll make a filter holder/cradle for the CB7, like the MXII model. Who knows why Beseler never made one for the CB7.

    However, I am going to stick with the UTL (Under The Lens) filters when I use my Point Light Source since it "melts" anything in its path in no time at all -- even when using heat absorbing glass!!!
