I would like to use my 6.5x9 Trona some day and the only way that will happen is with a spring back for 2x3 sheet film holders.

    6.5x9cm is very easy to process, in JOBO 2509 reels.

    Much to the annoyance of those of us who wish to use it for 2.25x3.25 and 3.25x4.25... I tried modifying a 2509 for my amurican sizes... trashed it.

    So I process 2x3 and 3x4 in PVC tubes in a Patterson System tank. The 2x3 pieces of film are just a bit small and like to retain their anti-halation backing, meaning longer wash times...

    The Nikor stainless steel tank, if you can find one, can adjust to any sheet film size from 2x3" up to 4x5".

    Alright, courtesy of Joe Harrigan just down the road, I now have some 2.25x3.25 holders to try. They are very cute.

    While we're on this subject - does anyone know of a Polaroid back to fit a 6.5x9 camera? I have a Voigtlander Avus.

    I was on a similar quest for a polaroid back for my horseman VH, which is 6x9cm, and I eventually concluded that putting on a 4x5 enlarging back with ground glass is a very good way to go. Then you can use any old 4x5 polaroid holder.

    It would also be possible to adapt a 3.25" polaroid back from something like an rb67 for your purposes; that would involve a little engineering. But at least those backs are inexpensive.

    Tim,

    yes - I would take photoes of my work, posting the whole set as a separate thread, if you want to see the result? It's very simple to do, and the result is very good.

    That would be great... when you have the time.

    I know about time... it's fleeting.
