    OP, What didn't you like about Thornton's Two Bath? I recently tried it and like it very much. I can now do two or more emulsions at the same time with time, temp and agitation not being that critical. I like the way my highlights don't blow out in contrasty light and the mix is easy and cheap as I have had all the chemicals for many years.

    DK-50 is a old common formula that was for deep tank and "press" use so it times are very short for 1:0 and even 1:1, but it has a nice 'brilliance' and a very nice and pronounced grain effect. Works much better than the common wisdom would have you think. Lasts a Long time, is easy to make and cheap, especially if you have the Sodium Metaborate around.

    That sounds really nice. Pronounced grain, lasts a long time. Yes please. I have a bottle of undiluted rodinal I'm working through very slowly, any idea how long that is supposed to last?
    Ever used DK-50 as a paper developer?

    Robert, I may not have used it for the right situation. And I probably didn't know what I was looking for anyways. Would you tell me some more about your experience with it? I guess it might be worth trying again, I'm still a novice at judging exposure and development factors.
