    looking for a half- frame option for my LPL 4500, and keep seeing Omega C760 carriers on eBay but none of the descriptions list dimensions of the carrier itself. Wondering if anyone could measure a C760 carrier for me? I’m looking for the outer dimensions and the dimensions of the circular ring on the bottom that would fit into the gate of the negative stage. Also curious if that bottom ring is attached with screws?

    Appreciate the help!

    They are 4 1/2 in. wide and 6 3/32 in. long at their longest point. The opening is centered 2 1/2 in. down from the curved edge and 2 1/4 in. from either side. Mine doesn’t have any circular rings on the bottom that fit the gate. It’s flat on both sides. If I where guessing, I’d say the curvature of the back curved edge is about 4 1/2 in. in diameter, but I don’t have a handy way to measure that right now. The curve seems to intersect the straight edges on the sides at 4 3/4 in. from the bottom.
