Rob and all Thanks for the info. I must say, I find this not acceptable. A good system would allow for neg and mask to be aligned before mask exposure, separated for the development of the mask and realigned for print exposure. And all without tape! There is room for improvement here. Again thanks for the info, but I have a Mivalo for sale now! Regards Ralph W.
