For me, that seems to be the way it goes. some won't drop, others drop like crazy.

Same here. Two caps that were right next to each other, one gave a very nice print, one didn't.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

>The caps are very wet, so
could the mosture be holding the spores from falling..?

This can be the reason. If the moisture in the printing chamber is too high, they sometimes don?t drop spores.

afoaf had HUGE problems with printing but everything else went ok... now he has it down to a art... use a pyrex dish... cut up your pieces of folded foil and bake it with foil covering the dish USE FOIL not syran wrap or something else the foil allows for air exchange and makes the humidity right.... watch the caps, dont just cut them right after the veil breaks, wait until right before they get flay.... and you see some light spores on the stems... some say way until they are heavily dropping spores but if there almost flat and you can see faint spores on teh stem they should be ok... but if your spore chamber thing is too air tight the spores wont drop unless the ambient humidity in your area is very low... here its high so i have to use foil that doesnt seal up the dish air tight... if you follow this you should be able to get them!!!

you could lightly patch it with moist casing... but make srue you do it light... you'll have success if you follow my steps up there about printing... its all about letting the humidity escape from teh moisture in the caps and getting the cap at the right time, if you have any questions you can PM me... afoaf had the same slimy problem first time when he tried using syran wrap over the dish....

also... i recomend cold shocking even though a lot of other people dont... once you do it you will get much more even pinsets... after beginning cold shocking afoaf NEVER has overlay and usually has 1 to 3 aborts per whole flush!
