Oh, well why not give platinum and/or palladium printing a try with your thin neg(s). The tone differentiation might suit your negs better than silver. Yep, silver is a b*tch with thin negs.... doable but not pleasant. Some people just automatically throw in the towel and hit it with selenium as best they can and/or go hybrid or get an LVT made. But try Pt/Pd, it may amaze you.
