The problem I have not solved is how to accomplish flashing (as you do with a pen flashlight) when my paper is not shielded by the blades of the easel.

I have the easel blades set about 1/4 inch all around. My enlarged image area is slightly inside. The black border from my filed negative carriers outline my images, it is like the ragged 35mm style black border. The easel doesn't usually mask any edges (but sometimes just an accidental touch).

So if I used a pen flashlight, the black would "bleed" outside my printed black border.

You've solved this problem?
