    This is a breath of fresh air! Though the pedant in me is compelled to point out that the Agfa formula for Rodinal is not the original formula for Rodinal.

    I'd love to hear something about U.S. distribution.

    well just to add to the mix:

    http://www.integrawest.com

    the above deal with a&o minilab chemicals and whilst at first you might think that's not relevant here, minilab chemicals include agfa fx-univesal fixer which is for use in the colour process. This fixer is very mildly alkaline and works perfectly well with black and white processes and is very cheap and is suitable for use with staning developers.

    In the UK Tudor photographic are the wholesale company for a&o selling this stuff. Their phone number is 01926 816900

    AGFA Chemistry!

    MACO PHOTO PRODUCTS under www.mahn.net, at the end of January 2007, will publish a new price list, which will then cover all new from A&O manufactured AGFA chemicals. The prospective customers, should understand the fact, that a production in comaratively smaller quantities, are considerd with a German middle size manufacturer, have othe conditions than with the mass production in a large company, and also with the fact, considers that in the former times so much attractive AGFA chemistry prices contribute, also was part to the fall of the company. The new proction takes place in a new design, while maintaining the proven AGFA company quality.

    In the transitional phase SALES OF EXISTING SUPPLIES and INTRODUCTION ON HE MARKET of the NEW PRODUCTS, are substantial nmbers of items available, comparatively inexpensive AGFA articles, which was transferred to the important part by MONOCHROM in Germany (also in the shop in Berlin), and in the dispatch with FOTO-RIEGLER in Austria.

    NOTE: Thus, it should itself worth to ask there for favorable AGFA company
    chemistry.

    Also, from what I understand, A&O Rodinal is the same as the more modern Rodinal...but no one can be sure until they get some to test. I'm still working on my old bottle of Agfa stuff.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    The A&O Rodinal is Agfa Rodinal :-) Yes it's the real thing ! Exactly the same. Unlike the stuff masqerading as Rodinal RO-9 which is just re-badged Calbe RO-9 and a pre WW11 Agfa version of Rodinal

    I'm sitting on a couple thousand 8x10 sheets of MCC 111 but I am running out of 16x20. Does anyone know where/how to place orders with MACO for delivery in the United States?
