    I've used:
    1) Self made Kodak d-19 plus hypo as the first developer
    2) Kodak T-Max dev as the second developer

    I've followed Ilford instructions to the letter. The emulsion didn't peel off the base, even with permanganate bleach.

    I'm mostly concerned about the micro-contrast: these scans were performed on a cheap Epson 3490 flatbed scanner, slightly unsharp-masked in Photoshop.
    Projecting they yield a rather brown cast, midway from a cold tone and a sepia tone.
