    I broke the clip that holds the film on, after loading. Does anyone know if it is possible to get just a replacement, or am I going to have to buy a whole new tank?

    Replacements for EACH and EVERY part of the 4x5" Combiplan tanks are available from HP Distribution (or any shop that sells the tanks).
    The clip is perhaps the most common part to ruin and costs-- at most-- a few USD to replace.

    I think you can order the clips through Calumet or B&H or local retailer. The merchant will then order the part from HP.

    B&H has them. Just search for combi_plan and you'll find the clip. They break frequently.

    You can more parts from HP Marketing at 800 735 4373. Bob Salomon maintains an active presence on rec.photo.darkroom and is quick to reply and deal with any issues you may have with your combiplan.

    A year or so ago I commented about problems I was having with my tank in a thread that I didn't start and Bob was quick to reply with the phone number to call. As it turned out the problem I was having was the result of damage caused by one of my cats and they replaced that part along with a part I was missing at no charge. I tried to get them to take money for it but they refused.
