    A couple years ago I put a pdf of "Photographic Emulsions" by E. J. Wall, 1929, on my web site for download. I have a better copy up there that can be downloaded now at:
    http://www.keyesphoto.com/KDKtech - E. J. Wall - Photographic Emulsions.html
    It's 12.5 Megs in size, but the graphics and text are much better in quality that the previous pdf I had made.

    If you have the previous version I put up there, I highly recommend downloading the new one.

    If you don't have this book, it's one of the classics in the field of emulsion making and well worth reading for a historical perspective.

    Thanks Kirk. I'll have another go at OCR'ing some of the formulae I have, as I now have decent working software.

    Thanks Kirk,

    Looks like the local chemical suppliers are going to get some "stimulus spending" from me... again :wink:
