    ..send film in or not, I could care less. I don't make 100% of my living processing film.
    It's beyond my comprehension why some who post here turn a suggestion into a boner.

    Process the film your-self as a positive, it's still the best result for the film today.
    ..is that the answer you wanted to hear... Bill..?
    If you were meaning to send in film and never did, perhaps now you lost that opportunity..

    regards.

    I would too if that's how I made my living
    I still have yet to send you guys some film. Been meaning to do it for years.

    Here's how I've been doing it.
    25asa (sheet film)
    2 minutes presoak
    68 degrees
    rodinal 1:100 in jobo expert drum speed 3 for 5-6 minutes depending on the contrast range
    I print with chromega heads on vc paper. The results blow my mind every time.

    Did I not post helpful information that actually answers the op's question rather than suggesting something else which benefits my own business?
    Are you making a lot of prints from slides in your darkroom?
    I was joking that's why there's a smiley at the end. Yes, I actually have been meaning to send film in. I'll make sure to recommend dr5 to anyone who can figure out what planet your website is from.

    At the risk of going off topic, I use PMK-pyro for Tech Pan with a bleach presoak to make the TP a continuous tone film.

    Expose TP for an ISO of 40

    bleach (stock solution)
    5g Potassium Ferricyanide
    3g Potassium Bromide
    1 Liter water

    for use 5ml of bleach stock in 1 liter of water Pre-soak 5:00
    PMK-Pyro Diluted 1:1:100 Develop 8:30
    rinse :30
    Rapid fix 5:00
    Hypo Clear :30
    Wash tbd

    Givers really nice printing negs with good seperation
