    I've been experimenting with slower rotation (F instead of P) for prints and I think it's giving me better results.

    Anybody else tried this?

    Help or hurt?

    I got my CPP2 in 1988 and found through experimentation that I get better prints at the slowest rotation.

    This also gives good prints at the lowest volume of chemicals possible, provided that the water level is adjusted so that a bubble level on top of the drum reads truly level.

    Generally I start with fast rotation for 30 sec and then slow for reminder of time.
