    Using the 184 and CLS 300 head for my 8x10 (and smaller) work and the 205
    glass carrier. My questionis- If using for smaller formats (6x6 and 4x5)
    what type carrier are you usung--the 205 and the 8x10 glass OR the inserts
    from Durst Pro for the appropriate formats. Which is the most cost effective
    solution? I find using the glass (10x10) a pain in the wazoo! Any one doing
    any rigging out there?

    Yeah. I use Carlwen Rapid shift electron microscope carrioers. Fast and easy.

  3. I only have the G139 with it's smaller (13x18) TRINEG glass carrier, but I
    don't think the handling of smaller sizes is a PITA. I looked for tough, thin
    plastic sheets (I use the sheets for transparent copying) and cut a mask for
    4x5, 120 and 135 film. This mask(s) are taped to the lower glass with thin
    scotch tape. Works like a charm.
