I don't know, incidentally, of many continuous tone films still made as
big as 20x24 for any price, but in any event don't knock the Freestyle
lith.....My tests show it's BETTER for continuous tone than
Kodalith, that is, less tendency to scoot up to high densities. If you're
trying to get a dense dot for repro, the "good" lith is better,
denser, quicker, but that's what we don't want.

A couple of my students had good results with paper negs on RC paper
-- exposure time about 20 to 25 minutes. The xerox machines we have
hardly do midtones, though some of the newer better ones probably do.
But if you have access to 20x24 "xerox" you can about cut exposure times
in half by waxing or oiling it. Heat with iron, rub on hunk of
parrafin. Or wipe on castor oil, let dry.
