    If you are proofing full frame to some specific
    SIZE it can be quick and easier to do if you use,
    what I've termed, the FOCUS ONCE method. Specific
    column hights are established for each format. Column
    height is set for correct print SIZE with sharply focused
    image. The one focus.

    After that, when returning, position the head and SIZE
    the image. No need to focus. Of course the method is
    not limited to proofing.

    BTW, IMO Full Frame proofing has any other method
    of proofing beat hands down. Dan

    I think they are great. The major use of my monster 4-bladed masking easel is to hold down the legs on various Ganz Speed-EZ-EL's* so they don't shift around so.

    Another from the 50's. Essentialy a single size speed easel
    with a spring loaded bed. Activating a front lever depressed
    the bed leaving plenty of room for quick paper insertion. Great
    for mass production.

    For two up printing a speed easel is very convenient. Simply
    rotate the paper 180 degrees then reinsert. An exact sized
    card, WIDE Blade, is positioned over one end of the paper
    for both exposures. The card's down side should be black
    otherwise foged paper will result. Dan
