    I plan to use Ilforf Rapid Fix to fix my wet plates and am wondering what dilution others have used and/or would recommend for wet plate. I'm not interested in using KCN and would appreciate advice from others who share this approach. Bill Barber

    I mix my fixer 1:1 or sometime 1:2 if it's in a warmer place for wet plate. I use Ilford Hypam fixer.
