The 9x12 film holders are made of strong mechanical plastic, which also has the property of repelling dust. The frame for film with rails is made of parts of three such holders. Rails allow the frame to slide over the macro bellows for focus. The glowing monitor screen is used to illuminate negatives and slides in the frame. Of course, you need to set the color profile of the monitor and also adjust its brightness and contrast. In my case NEC LCD 2490wuxi2.

Better to make only a frame of two holders. The sliding part can be made from a different type of plastic. I have not shown that the frame has a removable part for copying 9x12 slides. One quarter of this slide is copied through a 6x6 window, then the other three quarters are copied and they are stitched on the computer. The removable panel for the 24x36 format is not shown yet. Thus, three holders were needed for me.
The problem of mandatory clamping of the film in the frame window is solved with two clothespins.
