What should be in my arsenal?
This is an amateur question fur sure, but, if I was going to order a bunch of stuff, what should I include in my shopping list. (as far as emulsion chemicals, Developing Chemicals, and equipment)
I want to make PE's SRAD emulsion so I already have on my list:
Gold Cl, Sodium Thiosulphate, ammonia and Gelatin
KI KBr, and AG NO3, Sodium Metabisulfite, Kodak D-76 and Fixer are already in the cabinet.
Now, I have 1L through 40Ml. beakers, two 250 Ml erlenmeyers, a bunch of pipettes, a scale, a stirring hotplate, a ghetto solution delivery system to meter the silver into the PTTN, some cheese cloth, a bunch of developing trays,
and a thermometer
what am I missing?
And where are some good sources?
Photoformulary would be a given, any comments on Ebay chemicals?
For gold chloride and other precious metal salts used for photography, try mostlymetals.com. He often has a good price. E-mail to get the current rates.
Artcraftchemicals.com is also a good source.
