At Tim Rudman's workshops we wiped down the prints with paper towels before blow-drying them front and back (as spijker, although I tend to just hold the print in hand). Works great, dries much flatter than air-dried, and is good for checking dry-down and test prints. That being said, I still let my final prints dry the old-fashioned way.
Yea that's what I have been doing at workshops also. Just wondered if the heat would do any harm but looks like it's fine.
The canvas belts are also kmown as a great place to pick up fixer stains unless you never have anyone else use your equipment. You can proably find a print dryer on e-bay of any sellers know what it is enough to list it as other than a cooking appliance.
