    I am also very impressed with Simon's efforts and Harman's response to this. Certain other companies (who shall remain nameless) could learn a lot from Harman, I think...

    I am sure there is a certain element of 'mutual suppor't at work here which might help make the idea a success. I'm sure that whilst it is an 'ordinary' stock item many photographers will think 'I'd like to try it one day' - but not get around to it, leaving Harman with unsold bottles.

    Knowing the company has made a special effort to do a limited one off batch and I bet many of us will be in the queue to buy a bottle not only because it has now become a bit exotic (having been resurrected from the dead), but as a show of solidarity. I predict the first 'special order' batch (if they choose to do it) would sell like crazy

    There are a whole bunch of economies inherent in this approach, not the least of which the fact that neither the distributors nor the dealers have to buy any of the product unless and until they have a guaranteed customer for it.

    My hunch is an additive wouldn't work, from my printing experiments a while back. I've tried the Cooltone and would include it in my printing if available.

    I'd take 3 or 4 bottles minimum. A really wonderful developer on MG Warmtone, and on the Seagull Warmtone VC paper.

    Thank you Simon, thank you

    I am down to my last few bottles of original CT and was wondering what I could use as a replacement

    A bit off topic, but until/unless Ilford becomes available again, does anyone have any experience with this stuff from Freestyle?

    Looks to be Clayton Ultra Cold Tone

    Noting that their MSDSs are identical, and considering the MSDS for Freestyle's version says Clayton right on top, I'd say it's Clayton Ultra Cold Tone in Freestyle labeling.

    I have no experience with it, but, based on this post by Brian Steinberger

    http://www.apug.org/forums/viewpost.php?p=1148237,

    decided to pass on the opportunity. Instead, I tried and am exceedingly pleased with Moersch SE6 developer. It's expensive, but, unless/until Ilford Cooltone developer is brought back, seems to be the best commercially available liquid developer for neutralizing MGWT FB, my current favorite paper. See what I wrote about that here:
