    Good freakin' luck. I've got a bakers dozen vintage whole plate film holders, and all of them need some degree or other of overhaul. And I feel extremely lucky to have those.

    They're not that hard to find. I have a bunch of Toyo whole plate holders that are in excellent or better condition.

    Check an eBay seller called tokyophoto and if he doesn't have anything listed send him a message. He will sometimes have Toyo or Rittreck holders.

    You need to be careful about what camera you're trying to fit. There's no ANSI or other industry standard for WP holders. I've not seen any of the Toyo holders in the flesh, but I've owned Rittreck WP holders. The external dimensions are different compared to vintage American holders or to holders currently manufactured by Chamonix, Lotus or Ebony. Even if you don't mind fudging the T-distance and GG register, they're narrower but longer than the other WP holders, and might not physically fit into some camera backs without surgery on the back or the holders.

    Thank you for the heads up. I need Kodak compatible 6½" x 8½" holders.

    I'm picking up a shelf full of plate/film holders sometime in the next weeks, I've already had the metal plate holders over 150. I'll see what's there.

    Good point re: compatibility. I use my Toyo holders in a Toyo back so I can't confirm if they would fit anything else.

    The Kodak Whole plate camera takes standard International sized film/plate holders.
