Hmm... may have to give them a call on Monday. I tried to order it from 
Frugal Photographer and asked David a few questions. While he answered my 
questions, which lead me to think I should go ahead and try it (*), it's 
out of stock from his site and he didn't say when it will be in stock again.

(*) The idea that I would be using a 1953 derived M, shooting (1950s) Tri X 
and Neopan 400, using 1938 developer, with a modern'ish Jobo Rotary 
processor, scanned using a Nikon LS-4000, printing on an Epson 1280 and MIS 
UT-2 ink just brings a smile to my face. Retro modernism instead.
