Thanks Polyglot, thats some good advice
I have fixed and washed the negs again, there drying now.
When i finish my next roll i will put your advice into play,
i may post a couple more shots when that roll is developed :)
Hopefully if i can get the dev of the film correct, i will get some time on the enlarger
and not have to mess about this much
This is all in aid of my soon to have a child, daughter, so sometime in the next 3 months i have
to get this right :)
Did the refixed roll get a bit clearer? See in the edges where it was all dark originally; it shouldn't look like that. It should like like the first or third strips do.
You'll still need to stop the enlarger lens down some more and probably get an ND filter for it, because you want to have enlarger exposures of 10s or more on a properly exposed negative. Adjustments in development time will not save you from too-short exposures in the enlarger. Your K100 negs look pretty nicely exposed.
I am not sure the extra fix did make a difference ?
have a look :) (Ignore dust dirty scanner)
Still looks very dark. Maybe the film was fogged (exposed to some light) ? If the edges are dense compared to the other rolls, then there was a problem with it.
Thinking about it,
i developed that roll in a Patterson System 4 and the grey inner ring crumbled
so we did open the bag to add another ring, i thought we still had it sealed as we
kept a tight line in the bag ?
Since then i have been using Patterson "Super" System 4, but the inner lid is sloppy
and doesn't feel locked sometimes.

A small amount of glue re-attached the red ring, and solved the problem.
I will go and check that in a bit,
I have only 1 Super tank and 4 normal system 4.
Trouble is even with a decent grey ring the normal system 4, the tanks leak when doing the agitation
Its not much but a leak nevertheless
I will definalty check the "Super" tank because it is sloppy,
Well again its my novice skills or even lack of them lol
I didn't realise that in the Super System 4, when you turn the inner
lid, it has a lock in it to stop it being sloppy, it go's to the end and then a bit more to click into place.
well it seems i missed it :blink:
You know i am suprised i have even got a print on paper from this very jubious start lol
