    Photographers Formulary

    Has anyone tried the chemicals that the Photographers Formula carries and sells. Several sound interesting to me, and it is my kind of unique store. They even have a fixer that sounds really interesting. Thanks, Don

    I have used them to formulate all of my emulsions, developers and fixers. We have used them at the George Eastman House for our workshops on emulsion making.

    I must admit that I am not an impartial customers as they sell several of my "products", but I have had no problem with the chemistry from them.

    I've been buying chemicals from The Formulary for years. Just placed an order for bulk chemicals this morning. They're great!

    PF is a good source of certain chemicals not sold by others. They are a source for Glycin. I have bought paminophenol HCl from them. Other companies that I buy from are www.chemistrystore.com and www.techcheminc.com. The Chemistry Store sells inorganic chemicals such as sodium sulfite, sodium thiosulfate, sodium carbonate, etc. They do not sell developing agents. I buy these from Tech Chem Inc.

    I buy my premixed pyro developers(PMK and P-cat-HD) from them as well as TF-4 fixer. None better.

    been buying ansco / formulary 130 from them for about 13 years
    also have been buying other stock chemistry from them. they are
    very nice AND helpful ...

    but being in montana you would think they would have a special
    section on their website for high end cubic zirconia encrusted tweezers
    and whatnot, but unfortunately, they don't.
    ask me how ..

    I'm sure all these companies are good; I tend to buy from Artcraft Chemicals, for what it's worth.

    I buy PF products but usually not directly from the company. Adorama and B&H carries some of more common raw ingredients. Shipping is much cheaper this way.

    I just want you to know someone understood that.

    The Formulary are well-established and quite reputable; they come up a lot here and I don't remember hearing of anyone ever having a problem with them.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    They are great. I use there 130 and liquidol. Great products. Also many great phone conversations with them.
