I have used ATTO Corp.[Tokio Japan] semi-dry blotters with very good
results. Have metal electrodes and are well designed [consistent with the
design of their mini-slab systems, the best I've tried].

 Semi-dry is not quantitative. 
I've always wondered if standard blotting really is.

 Is stacking the gel sandwiches on top of one another to do multiple blots
at once a problem?

In my experience generally is not a problem but occassionally I got
"blurred" westerns after stacking.
