    I have a Made in England Kodak 5X7 Detective Camera

    Like new, it has 2 very strong leaf springs on both sides

    So strong I removed and saved the top leafs

    Still plenty strong

    I bet that camera can force any DDS light tight
    Sold a 90 angulon without checking the shutter, came back almost in pieces, sold it second time to a friend (who had seen the state of it) who wanted to learn how to repair those tiny shutters.

    Everything is expensive here, except for fish, snow and fine Italian wine.

    You're welcome.

    How about this source not too far from you:


    That comes to $296 including VAT and shipping.

    Put a piece of photo paper in each side and test for leaks. They might be fine. The light traps (felt) are robust in those. akeas' idea sounds like something easy to give a go.

    I store my unloaded plastic holders horizontally with the dark slides removed.

    All my 8x10 exhibit bowing due to the tension of the light trap. Maybe your holders exhibiting no bowing have faulty light traps.
