Thanks, i'm glad that its helped someone out, I am aware that you can wax the paper instead of oil it, I thought I would just try oiling it as it was to hand, I like the process because you can make cheap prints and with the modern technology of printers its now easy as you don't need an enlarger or inter negative to get a large image.

I am going to hand coat some more paper tomorrow I think, I still have loads left, hopefully it hasn't gone off!

I might also look into using some sort of filter as some of the exposure times on negatives that aren't as dense are getting quite quick, I am tempted to get a photographic timer which will turn off the UV much more predictably.
