    Time adjustment for Stock to 1+1

    I'm using Xtol to develop 4X5 Delta 100 in rotary Jobo and can't find any *suggested starting point* for Xtol diluted 1+1. Lots of opinions for Stock starting points. Maybe there is a general idea of what amount of time to add when diluting a stock developer?

    Thanks,

    Start with the Kodak Xtol time for 1+1 in rotary for Delta 100 35mm, then adjust from there?

    Otherwise if you have times for 4x5 Delta 100 in rotary vs small tank, look at the % difference?

    Ilford sheets also state start with up to 15% less time than small tank agitation for rotary.

    Looks like it'd be 7 to 9 minutes to me at 20 celsius.

    The ilford development chart doesn't specify differences for 35mm to sheet as far as I can tell.

    10.5 min for maybe inversion tanks, so you may reduce for rotary about 15%, sorry i am not expert and i can't help but i post something to be active than nothing, you can give it a try and see how you will end with, if you are looking for a certain look and accurate then better find another answers, here just for starting point testing.

    I do Delta100 135 and 120 in a rotary tank with Xtol stock, 7mins at 25° celsius. That gives good contrast which print well. I expose as IE 100.
    It took me a bit of experimenting to arrive at this - you'll probably also need to do some testing
