    Sheet film holders and Busch Pressman 4X5 D

    I'm getting back to large format after a number of minor interruptions (buying a house, remodeling, etc ) and I have an offer of a Busch 4X5 D. I'm wanting to be sure that my large stock of standard Fidelity film holders will work properly with the spring back on the Busch? From the searches I've been doing, it looks like they will, but I'm being a bit paranoid this year and want to be sure.

    There is no reason it shouldn't work with ordinary filmholders.

    I have one and no problem with holders. Lens boards are my issue. They are a bear to find.

    Thank you both.

    I have a small machine shop capability, and I was planning to look into producing a board or two to see what's involved in making them.
