    I can't find any Selectol Soft developer in Ireland so could any members suggest an online supplier in the UK?

    Try Silverprint

    But I think you'll have to make something similar up yourself from raw chemicals, as I think it's discontinued. Siverprint can supply the chemicals.

    Ilford ID-3

    Metol . . . . 6g
    Sodium Sulphite (anh) . . . . . 25g
    Sodium Carbonate (anh) . . . 37.5g
    Potassium Bromide . . . . 1g
    Water to . . . . 1 litre

    Use 1+3 20°C 2 mins

    Les McLean recommends a very similar formula

    I tried silverprint but it wasn't listed on their site but I'm just waiting for a reply to my email.

    This is actually for next weekends workshop in Dublin so I think Les may have to bring some with him if possible.

    I'm sure that Fotoimpex (in Germany) list it in their last catalogue. The other source that I have found is Calumet US. I use the Formulary version.
