Buried under the main page heading of FAQ is this accesories page which describes the various roll backs.

If you want to stay within the Graflex family then look for a lever wind roll holder. I say format does matter, why go with 6x6 when you can get 6x7 which will enlarge to 8x10 without cropping? With 6x6 you really end up using 6x4.5. 6x9 is a waste unless you print your self as no common lab will have a neg holder for it and crop it down to 6x7 any way.

The other option is a Calumet C2 ro C2N roll holder. these slide into the camera ike a film holder so you don't have to lose the ground glass and will fit that Crown even if it has a spring back.
