    Another question before I take the 8x10 out tomorrow.

    I haven't done any film speed test on the 8x10 TMAX-400.

    I am thinking about rating it at 320 ASA.

    Your advice is requested once again.

    These negatives will be developed in XTOL 1:1 (or I could use TMAX Developer)

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Can you "Pyrocat" in a JOBO?

    Where does one buy "Pyrocat"?

    Is a frog's butt water proof?!@! Heck yeah!


    Where does one buy "Pyrocat"?[/QUOTE]I get mine in a liquid kit from Bostick and Sullivan.

    Are you going to contact print on AZO? If so, I can forward you some times I got from Clay & Sandy, and the times I came up with after a little testing on my end.

    Thanks for the info. I don't have any AZO (yet).

    I have some "original" Zone VI Brilliant Grade #2 (White Box) that I was planning to use to contact print the negatives on.

    Thanks Brian, I would appreciate the times.

    Don't have any AZO, but I would like to go this route with my 8x10 negatives eventually.

    I guess I should just go ahead and get the stuff ordered!
