    You could get a 5x8 carrier frame similar to the 6x17 carrier insert made by DeVere.

    I use 3 different types of film stretchers, no glass allowed

    Some say no no! I find they work well

    http://www.glennview.com/ can make almost anything and has his own design glassless

    4X5 Beseler Neg-A-Flat

    5X7 and 8X10 Saltzman

    The slickest is Calumet 8X10 Glassless

    They require very careful handling and exacting procedure. I have 2, they are worthless if damaged even slightly

    I hear incoming...

    Glassless Neg Holders

    I do think location matters, as I live in humidity not desert sandstorms

    glassless has only 2 film surfaces to keep dustless and clean

    Glass adds 4 more = 6

    Tin Can, thanks for the Glennview reminder. I didn’t know he was still around.

    I am going to buy a De vere 5108 enlarger.
    If you are selling an enlarger please contact me.

    Re: New De Vere 5108 Owner

    I am getting lots of PMs asking me how much my enlarger is, maybe I posted in the wrong section. The enlarger is most definitely not for sale! I haven't even used it yet!!

    Thanks Luis for the dims, much appreciated!

    The idea is that the top and bottom attach with rare earth magnets. Top piece has AN Glass, bottom piece takes 8x10 film plus 8x10 plain glass, or a speed plate. I am designing inserts which go in this hole for most of the J Lane plates, as well as common sheet film sizes. These inserts are 8x10 with smaller holes cut for different film sizes. The whole lot will be cnc cut on Dibond rather than solid aluminium (4mm top 4mm bottom, 4mm rebated inserts)
