    Are the amounts published in the Chemistry Recipes section to be used with Staining Developers such as Pyro, Pyrocat, etc.?

    Yes, just use the standard "fix for 2X the clearing time" rule.

    Is Ole's formula for quick-fix to be used undiluted or diluted? If diluted, what ratio?

    Ole responded to that question in one of the Apug threads. The answer is: Undiluted.

    Undiluted, or sometimes diluted 1+1. I do that when processing lots of paper - fixing takes longer, but capacity is higher. I rarely worry about capacity unless I need to do a lot of prints in one go.
