Thanks to all of you for contributing to this thread!
My results have been very inconsistent. I received a brand new UV printer last summer and it has a built-in vacuum frame. I have kept the humidity at around 60% and my drop count on a sheet of 81/2 X 11 has been 12, 12, 1 ( palladium, ferric oxalate, and NA2) On a sheet of 11 X 14 I have used 24, 24, 2. I am coating with a Richeson brush and my time is about 6 minutes. I have never gotten a dmax greater then 1.30…….maybe a few times it has been a bit higher. My developer is Potassium Oxalate and then I was washing in Citric acid with EDTA added.
In August I worked with Jon Cone's PDZN system.
I have not done any work since August but want to get started again.
I have posted on my Flicker page two items. One has 5 -21 step grayscale linearizations that correspond to 5 of Jon's curves and the other item is the same photo printed with 4 different curves from Jon Cone. Maybe you can tell something from looking at them.
I will appreciate any comments and suggestions.
