Thanks for the response.

It has been a while since I did any wet enlarging work.

I am thinking of contact printing some (hopefully) digital contact

>From some quick research, it would seem that AZO in Amidol might
be a good combo. Any comments? Any preferred vendor for the AZO or

one I should probably start with.

Thanks for the help!!!
