Default Wanted 5 x 7 film holders

I have just bought a Kodak Specialist No.2 camera, and am badly in need of some 5 x 7 film holders for it. Does anyone have any for sale?

I have four wooden half plate Kodak Professional DDS available. Same outer dimensions, but slightly smaller film size so a sheet of 5x7" would need trimming to 4.75 x 6.5". They are all complete, but need some TLC. 15 +pp (that's what I paid) if you'd like all four of them.

Sandeha,
Thanks for the response. The camera came with a few kodak half plate film holders, double dark slides. I have cut some 5 x 7 film down to fit these, but am really after 5 x 7 holders, for convenience.

Hi Alan, I have some 5x7 holders I don't use as I shoot Half plate, how many do you have? I think I have about 5-6 holders in varying degrees of OK. I would guess they are all light tight but just need some tlc/bookbinders tape.
Fancy a trade?

Gari,
Thanks for the offer, but I think I would prefer to keep the Kodak half plate dd slides that came with the camera -you never know - and buy some 5 x 7 dd slides.

Beware! there are some (presumably chinese) copies which look like fidelity 5x7 darkslides, but are slightly larger inside, so the film pops out! I have six of these and six 'real' ones.

Thanks Andrew. You don't want to sell the real one do you? (only joking!)
