    Re: Question about Intrepid enlarger kit

    You have the Graflok sliders - the two long black pieces above and below the groundglass, each with two diagonal slots in them. I've never touched this type of Toyo back, but I think those sliders are actually holding the groundglass frame in place. You need to slide them diagonally away from the groundglass frame, and then it should be removable. Then you would install the enlarger attachment and use the sliders to hold it in place.

    Edit: Here's a picture to show what I mean

    Ah! Shoot. Thanks for the correction. I had looked up the manual for the 45A (original) and it said to move those sliders to remove the groundglass back, but I didn't realize they meant the whole back would come off. The pictures in the scanned manuals are small. I now see that the ruler in the first set of pics shows the width is larger than the width of Graflok sliders.

    I do not know the answer about whether that interchanges with the later models of Toyo Field 45 backs. It is different from the way that earlier Toyo Field / View backs attach, and (most/all?) of those earlier backs aren't international backs anyway.

    Thanks for this I do but the problem is that the accessory has the size of the glass and not the entire block that comes off.
