Anyone know the exact difference in the film plane of standard 4x5 holders vs. Graflex slotted holders?

I am making an adapter so I can use standard holders. I measured it at about 1.5 mm but I only have a roll-film holder to compare against and I figured the their would be a difference in film thickness.
