    I am using exactly the combination you are. I'll be glad to help any way I can, but I'm not sure I know what you mean by 'calibration strips'. I think the manual for the timer describes "customizing" the timer for all kinds of paper, with the settings RH Designs have found. On their web site they have a place for people to enter the values they have found for their particular setup. I feel sure Richard at RH Designs would be happy to send you a manual if you don't have and it isn't on their web site. I am using an Aristo cold with their V54 tube - it is extremely fast and, I believe a bit easier to work with than the older one which requires, I believe, additional yellow filtration. If you go to the Aristo site they have, or had the last time I looked, an article about filtration using the older tube. Take a look.

    If you further questions I can help with please don't hesitate to e-mail me at I have trouble sometimes with the apug pm and don't always look at it anyway. By the way, where are you located?
