Hi Jon.

My Takach press will be on its way on Monday (you had given me some
advice on roller size etc...)

Are you noticing significant differences in exposure or processing
between various KM plates?

I am frankly curious. I inadvertantly ordered KM43 and KM73 plates from
two different sources.  I noticed belatedly.  In the absence of greater
insight I'm going to stick with KM73 plates...
