Has anyone cut down a 4x5 120 film holder? It doesn't look too hard. I need one for a 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 Anniversary Graphic & the only ones I can find on @#$%%Bay are too spendy for me.

It will be less trouble for you to buy 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" film from FreeStyle.

You can also put in a special order to Ilford every June for a September delivery.

I had a cosmetically beautify 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" 1919 RB Graflex, that was not reliable so I returned and bought 4"x5" 1928 Graflex Model D and a 4"x5" Pacemaker Speed Graphic cameras instead. It took me almost a year to sell off the 600 Ilford sheets that I special ordered and bought. In the mean time the price of film rose and there was a stampede for the last three boxes of 50 sheets each.

Get a RFH for a 2x3 body and make an adapter to the 3x4. The 4x5 RFH has a lip that is thicker than the surrounding area between the shell and outer edge. Keeping the frame area centered on the 3x4 while moving the light trap ridges may pose a problem on the cut down and will be easier on adapting up.
