    Re: Rail lubricant?

    Vaseline will attract dirt, you'd be better of with any silicon based lubricant. Spray it onto a clean rag and rub into the rail.

    Re: Favorite Current 8x10 B&W Film?

    Adox CHS II 100 is a very fine film indeed. Nearly as good as FP4+, and at half the cost in the EU. I prefer classic emulsions as well.
