An interesting thought occurred to me: has a standard size been kind of agreed on regarding the actual size of ground glass screen for 4"X5" cameras? If different brands of cameras have different size requirements, I would be quite interested in putting together a list of dimensions for reference purpose, and of course my camera-building endeavours.

No Ground Glass sizes have not been standard over the years, I have over 20 different dimensions on file for the various cameras, I run into lots of different sizes in all types of cameras that we make screens for, but again, there is far from any standard in the different cameras.

I forgot to add, even within the same camera lines we have seen variances, for instance, the linhof line has screens that are 122mm wide, 127 mm wide and I have done two screens for linhof that were 128.5mm wide, so it seems as even the manufactures, don't always stick to the same dimensions at times.
