    I would like to share my result for stand development with D76 and Plus X.

    I've been doing some research online about stand development with D76. Most of the pages I read will tell me to use Pyro or Rodinal because D76 is not suitable for it. I've read people using D76 with TMX or TMY with successful result, but not with Tri X. Since I was bored and D76 is all i got on hand, i decided to try the D76 and PX combo. It worked beautifully.

    Info:
    Stand Development
    Plus X 125 (120) Exposed at 125
    D76 1+7 (18oz Fluid)
    Presoak (Well I do what i called Prewash as i do everything else, wash till its almost clear)
    D76 was at about 21C when started. Room temperature was at around 23C.
    Time: 1 hr 5 mins.
    Initial agitation: 10 times

    :w00t: Cheers

    Indeed I do. Scanned it with my Epson 4490, but I think the scanner is now broke 1/3 through the roll. I'm kinda mad but here are 2 of them. One's a higher contrast scene and the other one I was testing the infamous acutance of stand development.
