Jobo make or made one to cover an 8 x 10 inch sheet of paper.
I found it invaluable for learning about exposure changes and colour filter settings when learning to colour print.

It was placed above the paper in the frame, and one quarter left uncovered. An exposure of 5 seconds would give 5 4 3 2 1 second strips.
The exposed corner would be covered, and the next revealed. Different filter settings set and exposed in each corner.
That way on one 8 x10 four filter settings could be tried out and five exposures made in one go for each setting.
A very quick way to get an acceptable result.

I see they are still for sale

It reminds me of the kodak projection print scale.
