    Francesco,

    Do you ever see evidence of the screens in areas of continuous tone, like skies, etc? I've used vinyl screens for some but have noticed a faint screen pattern on some of my prints. I don't know why this would happen though.

    Matt, never noticed any marks - all negatives come out clean and damage free. Perhaps this is a result of using vinyl screens as opposed to fiberglass ones?

    Could be. I'll get some fiberglass screens & try them out. Thanks.

    That's why I use the fiberglass screen. The base side of the film is not rubbing against anything when I pull it out by grabbing the screen.

    I've never noticed any marks on my negs (8/10, 5/7) w/o the screens although the use of the screen doesn't sound like a bad idea. I never take out the film until completion. If I'm processesing multiple sheets at different dev. times I'll have a small tub to the side with stop bath and plunge the tube in it's entirety into the stop letting it fill and then cap it and continue on with the development of the other tubes in the developer. It has servrd me well. If I'm doing only one sheet I never take it out to put it in stop bath. I simply leave it in the tube. As far as chemistry goes...I have used as little as 200ml of dev. and it seemed to work good but I settled on 250ml and it's more than enough for non-stand dev.
