NO. NO. NO. And the Pressman back is slightly different in size from the Graphic, so grafting a 2x3 Graflok back on is a big job. Its been done, a 2x3 Pressman with Graflok was sold on eBay not too long ago.

Consider getting an Adapt-A-Roll 620. Yes, there are no new ones, you'll have to find a used one. They fit (slip in) just fine. Should be even better on a Pressman than on a Graphic. Based on the 2x3 Pressman I just sold on eBay, the things' backs have somewhat stronger springs than Graphics.

Cheers,

Dan

At this time (right now!) there's a 2x3 Pressman with Adapt-A-Roll on offer on eBay. I don't own it and as far as I know I don't know the owner.

Adapt-A-Rolls show up from time to time on eBay, you should look in there once or twice a week. They also show up a camera flea markets, aka shows. If its convenient, you might visit some of them. Just remember, it takes a bit of waiting to find a slightly uncommon piece of used equipment.

Cheers,

Dan

I use an Adapt-A-Roll with my mini speed graphic and I find it a great roll back though you will want to find extra 620 film spools as the 620 is the only spool that will work as a take up spool.

So the camera won't just "sit" waiting for an Adapt-A-Roll to show up, consider using sheet film. There is still a small selection of 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 sheet film available. Using it now might change your mind about roll film adapters, and might even help keep some of the sheet film on the market. Who knows, you might find the sheet film benefits from superior flatness (compared to roll holder use) and you really like the results from your "Baby Busch".
