    WTB: 4x5 Wet Plate Holder(s)

    Hello all,
    My wife purchased a Toyo 4x5 camera from here a while back and wants to start trying wet plate with it. I've looked and looked and I cannot find 4x5 Wet Plate Holders for her (nor can she). I think a company called MMP or MPP makes them as well as Linhof, but they're apparently kind of rare. If anyone has one or two that they're willing to part with, please send me a PM or email (matthewjmorse@gmail.com). I guess they have to fit in her Toyo so keep that in mind, please.

    Thanks in advance,
    Matthew

    Jody Ake is manufacturing some new very nice looking 4x5 wet plate holders. His holder site is at http://incameraindustries.com/ although it doesn't list the new holders yet.

    Just found this as well. I've always been intrigued by DIY stuff.

    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I use a holder made by Lund Photographics and have found it to be very satisfactory, as has dealing with Niles Lund. Bill Barber
