    It's set up for 6.5x9cm, but you're right - it's still not close enough.

    I've also used the rack from a Yankee tank, but in larger deep tanks. If you try this, be sure the sheets are pushed all the way into the rack, so they don't fall out.
    I'd love to have a deep tank line. It just seems like sheet films and deep tanks go together like...peas and carrots. Which tanks do you have David? I'd like to get the stainless steel tanks but, they do not seem to come up for sale often....are there others that you can recommend. If I had 'em, I'd use them for 4x5 (mostly) and 5x7 as well.

    I think the Combi-Plan (Kombi-Plan) T tank will take 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 sheet film. The rack is adjustable up to 4x5. And it will work for glass plates or film, by reversing the end pieces.

    I have mostly 5x7" 5-quart hard rubber tanks, and then I've got some Kodak 4-quart hard rubber tanks, one plastic one of recent vintage--Cesco or some such from B&H--and one 1 liter 4x5" stainless steel tank that I use mostly for monobath processing.

    The old hard rubber tanks are usually cheap, but heavy, so it's best to find ones that don't have to be shipped too far. They usually need to be cleaned fairly thoroughly, and some may have cracks. They're plentiful enough that you're better off just buying more of them, rather than fixing them, and using the cracked ones for washing film or as dry tanks for holding hangers as you load them and for storing extra hangers.

    Kodak (and others) I'm sure made stainless steel film hangers for 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 size cut film, which should work fine in the hard rubber tanks.

    They certainly did, but they're hard to come by. Mine are some generic brand. The only marking on them is "Stainless," and they're of different design than my Kodak hangers for 5x7" and 4x5".

    2x3" hangers and filmholders are likely to be either exorbitantly priced or free from someone who has lots and is giving them away, because they don't shoot the format.

    You may be able to modify the 4x5 to work like they did. Finding a used one is probably impossible. I also use the Nikkor sheet film tank. It's nice because I can also do 9x12cm in it.

    I saw one of these Nikkor sheet film tanks at the Keeble and Shuchat museum. I talked one of the clerks into letting me fondle it for a few minutes. It is a thing of beauty but, alas, they are hard to come by and too expensive these days.

    Funny thing about the Keeble and Shuchat museum... looks like all the stuff I still use.

    P.S. Those guys in the Darkroom department are very knowledgable.
