        If you aren't in a rush 8x10 contact frames go cheap on Ebay. Mine was $10 or
so. It's a Kodak Canada frame. At least that's what I remember. Often called
"old picture frames" by Ebay sellers. I've bought three different sizes on
Ebay. 4x5,5x7 and 8x10. Two were labeled picture frames. The worse one needed
a little wood glue. The other two didn't even need dusting. None cost me more
then $10 plus shipping.

        Smaller contact frames often go no bid. 2x3" or so.
