Hi all,

Back to some basics here... I think some of my uneven tone problems
are coming from minerals in our water leaving deposits (we have very
hard water from a mountainside well).  So... I'm now trying distilled
water for washing, but I'm wondering about if I've been drying the
plates long enough, with just a few moments under a warm blow dryer,
then a 200 sec 1000w hardening exposure.  Jon I just went back to your
process notes and see that you're doing 600 sec at 1000, but no
mention of drying time.

comments and suggestions gladly accepted :o)
