    Thanks all for your interest. I was out of twon for a few days, I'm back at my studio, after checking the conditions of the camera, as suggested, I'll expose the two holders giving special atention to fit the holders properly and carefully. I must say that I posted the negatives not prints, and proces the four negs together in a Jobo procesor. Because I didn't know about the leakings, didn't take note of the order for each holder so I can't precise wich is side a and wich b on each one.

    I'll post the results.

    I just finished developing the plates I made with the holders in question. I follow all the advice you gave me, and there is no leaks. Working carefully I found out that I'm the culprit, in my first take, when I turn the holder to make the second exposure, I realize that, even that it seemed that it was properly fitted, the holder wasn't fully seated on the inner rib, that needed an extra 1/16" to the end, leaving a small space that could produce the leaks.

    I've learned a lesson here, I have to work with more attention on what I'm doing, don't take anything for granted.

    Thanks folks.

    " I have to work with more attention on what I'm doing, don't take anything for granted."

    That's the benefit of using large format.
