    Hi guys,

    I'd like to start making my own B&W developers and was wondering if anyone knew of a supplier around Oslo that can supply the most commonly used chemicals and equipment?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hello Mike

    This thread concerns the same question http://www.apug.org/forums/forum189/50853-hvor-handler-man-kjemikalier-i-norge.html
    but it's in Norwegian.

    In order to buy from the chemical suppliers you need to register a company, they are all whole-sale enterprises.
    Feel free to contact me directly, and we can see if we can do something together. ( I live in Oslo)

    Regards

    Birger A.

    Hei Birger,

    Jeg har også lenge hatt ønske om å blande mine egne kemikalier. Men har følt meg usikker på hva jeg trenger og hva de forskjellige kjemikaliene heter på norsk.
    Hadde vært fint med litt hjelp. Jeg kunne gjerne tenke meg å komme til Oslo for å få "et lite kurs". Jeg bor på Skjærhalden i Østfold og dersom du kunne sette av en time eller to, f.eks en lørdag, så hadde det vært hjelpsomt og helt sikkert morro.
    Kunne du tenke deg å foreslå en lørdag, hadde dette vært kjempefint. Kan stort sett alle lørdager, men lørdag 9. september er jeg i Praha.

    (To Mike;
    I have also wanted to order raw chemicals, but feel I don’t have the knowledge. I' l be happy to come to Oslo and learn from Birger and eventually order chemicals together with others)

    mvh
    Odd Magne.

    :D I can see the raised eyebrows of our neighbours if they find out we're getting together to experiment with chemical mixes :D

    Mixing your own chemicals isn't that hard, I used to do it at school (mostly ID-11). I'd just like to make sure that when Kodak, Ilford et-al decide it's not economical to produce commercial versions, that I have the ability to keep going.

    I have had mail order (dry) chemicals from Retro Photographic in the UK, notably copper sulphate, potassium ferricyanide and potassium bromide. However, they have not had a very good press recently here at APUG. If anyone could tell me where to obtain conc. sulphuric acid here in Norway that would be helpful - it's not something one can get by mail order!

    cheers
    Pete

    Jo. Det är lika svårt att få tag i kemikalierna här i öster. Vi har hittat en väg...vi alternativa i UFS (www.uppsalafotografiska.se) går ibland ihop om beställningar och har haft goda erfarenheter av http://www.nifelheimkemi.se
    Det blir lite dyrt, men man kan köpa det mesta...även det som inte står i listorna. Vi får hoppas att dom fortsätter att leverera till oss privatpersoner.
