    I would like to second the suggestion of

    Fototechnik Suvatlar
    Simrockstr.178a
    D-22589 Hamburg

    Tel.040 / 39 57 09 und 040 / 39 79 31
    Fax: 040 / 39 19 08 66
    Mobil: 0173 / 60 11 77 2

    E-Mail: fotosuvatlar@live.de

    Last year I bought various chemicals that I needed to make up my two-bath developer.

    I sent them an e-mail asking if they had the particular chemicals in stock and in the sizes I require.

    Two days later they all arrived in the post with an invoice.

    Definitely worth contacting them and supporting a lifeline for analogue workers.

    Best,

    David

    No idea - ask them.

    However, from other posts on this site there seems to be problems with people shipping from US to Europe and vice versa.

    Also, there appears to be pretty good provision with the US.

    Quality is quite good. It is chinese amidol and leave some dust in solution that don't create problems to the prints. If don't like to work with a dirty solution it can be easily filtred, but I don't care and prints are clean and without stains.

    Oh. If it's Chinese, then maybe the price isn't so great. I paid about $65/lb. for it in the original deal.

    For what it's worth, Mike Johnson at Artcraft Chemicals here in the states gets his Amidol from the UK. I don't know where, but he lists it as "English" and sells it for $105/ half pound. It works without the mess associated with the Chinese amidol.

    Good luck,

    Good luck,
    Mike Jacobson is the owner and founder or Artcraft Chemicals. And his amidol is much nicer to work with than the Chinese stuff. I'd recommend starting with it if you've never used amidol before, as the mess and inconvenience of the Chinese stuff might turn you off to the whole process.
