    For RC I use 2 minutes. 1 minute in each bath. It's likely excessive. For test prints I'm lucky if they get a total of 45 seconds in the first bath and they've lasted.

    Best thing would be to test I guess. TF-2 is just an old fashion hypo fixer. Does Kodak make any non rapid fixers? If so the same times should be okay.
