Are coated glass plates still available? Anywhere on the planet? (this planet!) I thought that T-Max was until recently, but probably not in any of the formats I use (WP. 7x11 10x12). Thoughts?

TMX was a catalog item in 4x5 plates, though they were frightfully expensive.

These folks -


- are often mentioned as a possible source of plates for general pictorial use, though the listing on the site is oriented to holographic use.

The Surplus Shed had some glass plates, IIRC.

I have an excellent Folmer Graflex 11X14 double sided wood glass film holder with two sheets of glass in it and they are pristine. I've kept it as a back up in case of a world wide abandonment of film. So far so good but your never know about these things. It could come in handy!!

$39.00 for 10? That's only $3.90 per plate, 9.5" square. There's a lot of black and white film which costs more than that.
