I wonder if it would be possible then for them to be able to interchange some of the pieces on the machines to also make 4x5..

I would guess that once the negative and receiver sheets were in-hand, and that the reagent was present, then tooling for 4x5 might be a practical next step. I'd be glad to help.
The components such as the sleeve, receiver, and insert for 8x10 are not that different than the 4x5 materials other than in format dimension, and there are a lot of hungry 545 backs. I'm sure TIP knows this.
20 X 24 now apparently has rolls of B&W receiver, and negatives, and reagent. That might be another reformatting opportunity. I hope both of these groups are quite successful and encouraged to move toward 4x5.
