I blame me too. Wish I hadn't said anything now ... (Much egg on the face)

But it seemed like such a good idea. I made a half-hearted attempt with it myself, but it produced nothing, zero, zilch. So I went back to using the Nicot system with a Cloake Board. First run excellent, 2nd and 3rd runs - hopeless.
But - I finally think I've got a handle on what I'm doing wrong (where have we heard that one before ?).

So I've now returned to my tried-and-tested version of the Miiler Method over a divided Cloake Board - checked this morning - Q/Cells, not even a hint of a problem.

I reckon "stick with what you know works" to produce the goods, and when you have those tucked safely away - only then try your hand at other Q/R methods.
[whoops - I see Saltybee got there before me]

Think I'll try my hand at the Hopkins Method just as soon as I get the next batch of nucs made-up - I've been wanting to try that technique for some years.
Did you try the Hopkins Method LJ?
