    DiaXactol??

    Has anyone been using DiaXactol with sheet film?? Tried the Photographers Formulary version and didn't have a good result. Though it worked fine with 120 film.

    Thanks

    Dixactol Ultra - dilution of working solutions?

    Hello, I┤m planning to mix also my homebrew Dixactol Ultra type developer, as published by Ian Grant. I would like to use it as two bath. The only but the most important thing I didn┤t find up to now is, what should be the dilution for bath A and B. Would you please help me? Thank you very much. Libor

    In all honesty I think you'd be better using Pyrocat as a two bath developer instead. There's plenty written about the developer.

    Thank you Ian for reply. But anyway, would it be please possible to post the dilution for two bath? I would like just to try it as I had good experience with two bath formulas. And more, now, I have even glycin, that is why I would like to try two bath glycin / pyro ...

    Many thanks!

    I looked once again the formula reciep. Is it really normal, that both stock solutions A and B are made up to 100 ml only? Should┤n there be 1000 ml as usual?

    You can make up a Litre if you want just multiply the quantities by 10x.

    It's a highly dilute developer in use so 100ml makes 10 litres of working solution.
