  I don't do any gum yet, but I wonder if humidified paper would lead to easier coating? And, how much would humidity effect DMax (maybe not so much?), Tonal Range, eveness, etc working with Dichromates? According to Sandy King, it sure does have an affect on Carbon, and Carbon uses dichromates.... hmmmmmmmmmmm

    At the time that I reported my failure with the roller, I tried to post
    a jpeg to the Bostick & Sullivan forum, but the upload didn't work, so I
    gave up on it. But while working on my website this morning, I came
    across the jpeg, and now that I know how to FTP things to my ISP's
    server, I thought I may as well put it up for you all to look at.
