I had a darkroom mishap today. The negative holder on the DeVere 504 slipped and fell and one of the pieces of glass in the holder broke. The really bad news is that this is not my enlarger so getting a replacement part is now a top priority.
This negative holder accommodates 4x5 negatives, in a hinge type arrangment between two pieces of what I assume must be Newton glass. Each piece of glass clips in and can be removed for cleaning. The exact size of the glass is 6 1/8 inches by 4 15/ inches. It has beveled edges so it can be retained by the metal clips.
Google informed me that Odyssey Sales in Brighton England is a distributor for DeVere and I have already emailed them and hope for a response.
Can anyone tell me if they have acquired this replacement part and if so from where. In case Odyssey doesn’t stock it are there other sources for this glass. Is there anyone who can cut a piece if necessary?
Thanks for you help.
