    2 1/2 x 3 1/2 is also known as Sixth Plate. Go to my Etsy store and find the Sixth Plate listing and order what you need!

    Is there a run-down somewhere on the various holders to look for?

    Dig back through the first page or two of this thread...I highlighted what to look for.

    Re: Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    Deals do exist. Since Jason introduced his excellent Dry Plates in many sizes, eBay sellers are milking it.

    1/4 Plate cameras and glass plate holders are not as rare as other sizes. Nobody wanted them until recently.

    Last month I found an 8X10 glass plate holder on eBay that was 'damaged'. Looking closely at the pics revealed only one side was 'damaged' the other side perfect. It was listed as $25 OBO. I offered $20 and got it. Somebody had very carefully removed the light trap cover to get a bit of the trap. The top rope side. The 2 tiny nails were still in the wood cover. The bottom spring backed trap was perfect. I glueed some felt rope from JoAnnes Fabrics and bingo 2 side 8X10.

    A few years ago somebody gave me an 11X14 dry plate holder with 10X12 glass plate inserts. 2 sizes in one!

    The holder was severely warped about one inch high in a corner. But everything else was VGC, so I have been slowing unwarping it with hot water towels and opposite twist on a flat table with clamps. It's now close enough to flat to insert 11X14 glass plates, use the darkslides and best in a tight spring back. Ready to use!

    Next Fall I will shoot both 8X10 and 11X14 Jason L Glass Plates as I have othe priorities right now.

    Thanks Jason. I will do that.

    Learn something new everyday. I have been cutting up 5x7 film to feed this camera for several years and never knew it was also known as 6th Plate.

    If you don't believe it, look into an 8x10 viewfinder!

    Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    I never knew either before I started offering them for sale and folks started asking. Now I probably know as much about the old plate sizes as anybody. Getting to learn new stuff is kind of a fringe benefit of this venture.


    They are also the same size as 6.5 x 9. I cut the plates to 63x88 mm and they fit all those.

    Fresh dry plates in a variety of sizes

    Quick heads-up for those of you that feel the need for speed: Orthochromatic ASA 25-32 dry plates will soon be available as a limited run in 4x5 and 8x10. Finishing up the batch tonight.

    If you’re interested, let me know what size (especially if you want them in a size other than 4x5 or 8x10).

    I'm interested in 4x5.
