Adapter plate to use Beseler 23C neg holders on Beseler 45?

Discussion in 'Darkroom Developing and Printing' started by Stephan Goldstein, Sep 6, 2004.

  1. I have a nice 6x9 Anti-Newton holder that I'd like to continue using now
    that I've switched from a 23C to a 45MXII. I've done some quick checks
    and it _looks_ like I should be able to take the bottom half of almost
    any 83xx holder and, with some machining, make an adapter plate that
    would allow me to use my 23C holders! Has anyone ever tried this?

    TIA.

    I have seen a similar widgets for the Omega enlarger to use Beseler 4x5
    holders on eBay. But I made my own and a second one for a pair of 23 C
    Negatrans's. 4x5 neg holders for most enlargers are pretty cheap, take the
    bottom half and use it as the base for your adapter.
