I took a couple months off from printing in my darkroom because I was just getting too frustrated. Things weren't coming out the way I saw them in my head. I found this thread the night before I finally went back in there and it helped immensely! Especially the grade 5 "blasting" and the outflanking really helped.
It's amazing the difference between a print that you're 95% happy with and one that you're 100% happy with. That's a BIG 5%!
Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your knowledge!
P.S. I'll never give up my foot switch!
