This morning when I started to prepare this month's column I realized that I am now starting my seventh year writing the Plating Clinic. I find it hard to believe that six years have gone by since I took over for Larry Durney. It has been extremely interesting fielding the many different questions asked by you, the reader. As one e-mailer suggested recently, the mix of questions varies "from the unusual to the downright obvious."

A number of e-mailers have taken me to task for seemingly answering the same question more than once. There is a reason for this: The question has been asked more than once. I have found that most participants in this industry usually do not have problems with complex processes but instead have issues with what are really the routine day-to-day processes.

Some readers have e-mailed me with suggestions and comments about some of my responses. I am very appreciative for these comments. First, it is always great to know that the column is being read. Second, it allows me to learn new things!

Now let's tackle some recent questions!
