    Re: Avoiding purple tones with selenium...

    I actually like the very slight purplish tone change that I get with Multigrade FB Classic. I tone at 1:10 for 6 minutes. If I remember from reading Fred Picker's book, he, too, liked the "cool...

    Having trouble understanding why D23 is economical to use if one discards it after each use. I mix up a liter of it and then reuse it several times, saving it in a brown bottle. If you mix a liter...

    Re: Monorail vs. Folding Camera Weight

    I, too, use a Wista DX. I use a small 210mm f6.8 from Caltar and a 90mm Nikkor 90mm f8. Those two lenses have served me well for many decades.

    Re: the "best" 5x7 Camera

    I have a Linhof Tech III 5x7. Heavy, but it is the smoothest operating LF camera I’ve used. I stripped it down to bare metal and hope one day to have it re-covered in leather.

    Re: Good 210 for 4x5??

    Re: Discolored white borders on prints

    Michael,
    Just so I understand correctly, the wash routine you describe — is that after you’ve toned a print, or before toning?

    Re: Discolored white borders on prints

    Thanks, Doremus. I think the wash between fix 1 and 2 is something I’ll keep up. I appreciate all the advice from you and others on the forum. Hopefully, this issue won’t crop up again.
