Thread: I need advice on 11x14 film holders.

    Re: I need advice on 11x14 film holders.

    Here is a weird issue. I have two Fidelity Elite Wonderful holders. Then I purchased two newish wooden holders touted to fit my Wisner. But they do not!!! The "ledge" on the film holder is about 1/8th of an inch too far up the length to fit into the slot in the Wisner film gate. I compared this to the fidelity and it was confirmed. The Fidelity fits fine.

    Now what? I can remove the wooden part from the newish film holder and then use a router table to remove the width by the needed amount . Put the part back and see if that fixes the issue. It should. I cannot return the 11x14 holder because I bought two on Ebay ( $1,000 CDN for two when all the dollar exchange , shipping and duties were added) No returns allowed by the seller . They were not camera vendors, they sell many items.

    I found a fix but only because I have a wood shop and decades of experience with fabrication. I have bought many hundreds of film holders over my lifetime but never has this issue arise. Until now . But there was a solution. Otherwise the film holder is well made and like new. I guess they were never used due to the defect.

    You should be able to return them since you bought them from eBay. What type of holders are those? Pictures?

    Ha ! When the seller says no return that is enforced. Anyway I can fix it easier than doing all the mess of goung back through customs and dollar exchange I Would not get any satisfaction and the result would have large economic loss.
