    If it is too thin to print selenium tone an expendable test negative and see if that prints more easily

    You can use selenium to intensify thin negs too.

    There are other intensifiers that give more intensification but selenium toner is quick and easy and should be tried first.

    Selenium or sepia tone the negatives. After that try split grade printing starting with the G5 "hard" exposure first. Some additional G00 "soft" exposure is used as need after. This also allows easier control over increasing local contrast, as you can dodge areas during the soft exposure to increase local contrast.

    With really thin negatives I go straight for the grade 5 filter.

    Thanks to all, as it turns out - details are there but effort to get them is inevitable. Thank you all, again!
