Is he trying to sidestep or test the "dry-down" effect?

I seem to recall that he was testing the time for the dry-down so it would not ruin the prints he was doing.

Am I remembering this correctly?

Lee,

My memory coincides with yours. I have always heard that to be a quick way to dry a print to determine dry down percentage. I believe that dry down is a factor no matter how the print is dryed.
