    We're trying to get our JOBO-machine up and running at our student darkroom. No one has used it before, and the only documentation we have indicates that we need a special kind of fix for developing film. Is this correct? My google foo is weak, I cannot find any info on what type to use. (We're going to run B&W to begin with.)

    P.S.
    DO NOT run any photo-flo thru and/or stabilizer the machine.
    JOBO states not to run it thru the reels either however I do (when off of the machine, in the tank) but I rinse the reels right away so no build up forms.

    Right, as suspected. I also received a PM from another APUG'er to much the same effect.

    Thanks a bunch! And thanks for the photo-flo warning!
