      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.
