Scanning odd sized curled film

I had the need to scan some old Kodak safety film that was both an odd size (65mm x 110mm) that did not fit into any of my Epson film holders and had a massive amount of curl. And not a curl that is easily tamed more like the curl a 10 year old puts on their plastic floor hockey stick. The solution that I came up with was to use the glass film holder for my enlarger. I realize that not everyone has a 4×5 enlarger and by extension a 4×5 film holder but if you do it is one way to handle a situation like this. Handily it also turns out to hold the film at the right height off of the scanner glass for focusing the same as other film holders.
