Kill joy!I started making one, but gave up on it at this point. I need to rethink the plans.
In the mean time, the simplest thing that I have seen is two pieces of glass and some binder clips. Sandwich the negative and paper between the glass, and use a couple of these:
Mine is A3 in size. I made it from Aluminium profiles for window frames linked in corners by their special corner pieces. It is quite solide. i've used some thicker glass for it and a hard plywood sheet on which I glued a sheet of cork. i wanted to use it as a paper press, too, and therefore the pressure is obtained by some large screws and it is even and substantial. I had to make some inner pieces (wood) introduced and glued into the Al profiles of the frame in order to support the female screws on the correct position.
I use it for my alternative processes and the higher pressure makes a big difference in sharpness compared to my older, classical frame.
