    I recently bought an Agfa Varioscop 60 enlarger. At present, I'm still alligning it and getting rid of dust. What I noticed and wanted to ask about was the negative carrier. It looks well made but after taking it out and putting it in a few times it looks like it would "pinch" film between it and the enlarger body. Anybody have any problems with it damaging any negs(and I mean the frames poking out of the carrier on the side) or am I just being paranoid? Is there a specific way to load the carrier to avoid damage, if this is actually an issue. Any advice or info concerning this odd enlarger would be greatly apreciated.
