    Replacement 8x10 darkslides

    Iíve checked the usual places with no luck. Anybody know where one can find replacement darkslides for something like the Lisco Regal or Fidelity 8x10 holders? Iím talking about the ones with the plastic tabs. Or am I relegated to just buying new 8x10 holders? Thanks.

    I’ve seen them on the Bay. It might take some patience.

    Like photog_ed, I have seen them on Ebay but not very often.

    You could buy some cheaper well used holders off Ebay and just take the dark slides from them for your present holders.

    I do not know if they will fit, but new replacement dark slides for Toyo 8x10 holders are 3,000 JPY each, plus shipping. If you can find some junk holders, it may be cheaper to buy them for the slides.

    Also look out for 18x24cm versions of the Fidelity from Europe which can sometimes be obtained for reasonable money - the slides are the same as 8x10 inch version.

    The newer Toyo slides do not fit in the Fidelity holders, just FYI.

    I would think that one could go to a plastics shop and they could measure the thickness and rigidity of an existing dark slide and come up with a suitable material that fits the billing. Cutting the material square I would think would be a cost effective procedure where one could sound the corner with an abrasive tool. The tab could be riveted on. I would be happy to chip in with funding to get this in the done column.

    My Fidelity Elite 8x10 film holder dark slide thickness is 0.030. I am getting an identical reading for my Toyo 8x10 holder dark slide thickness.

    Anyone have a connection with the plastics industry. I would take several dozen 8x10 replacement dark slides and I am sure there are others in the same boat.
