Thanks for posting this. Harry had sent me something previously, but
mentioned you would be finishing up a more precise description. Bit
surprised about A&V's contribution. Does this work well for text? or
are you mainly concentrating on images?
Is the Laser Buddy a crucial step? or would a secondary chemical bath
help improve the opacity? I remember that Xante recommended a second
bath to improve the opacity with their bath unit.
