    A couple prints, using Oriental Select Warm-Tone FB paper, have two vertical strips the length of the paper, about 1.5"
    wide, that are slightly uneven. Since these strips are very straight, I'm guessing the paper is from a bad batch.

    Anything else that could cause this? Paper was developed for 2 minutes in Ilford Multigrade, with gentle agitation.

    Negative printed fine using a different paper.

    I figured out the problem: although I used agitation, it wasn't _constant_ as I let it sit for 20-30 seconds. The
    strips were actually uneven development due to the print sticking to the bottom of the tray.
