Hi Chuck - that's GREAT news!!!

How long were you contact printing your 4x5 negatives? I remember how jazzed I got when seeing mine BIG for the first time

Sounds like you've got everything under control in the dry down and toning department - I'm guessing you did a wee bit of reading while you saved up for the enlarger? Keep us posted of your antics, and fire away with any questions that come up, OK?
