Just getting started in 12x20 and I've realized I need to work on my chemistry costs a bit. Each sheet of film is equivalent to 6 (!!!) rolls of film. (xray film is double sided). And, I'm mixing 2 gallons at a time for my tray processing.
So, currently I'm using TF-5 but I'm going to burn through that pretty quickly. Anyone got a recommendation for an odorless rapid fixer that I can get in bulk, or a cheap formula for some homebrew. I'm semi-comfortable with mixing my own chemistry, and I have access to a heated magnetic stirrer if that helps.
Or, am I being overly concerned with the costs? Maybe it's cheaper than I thought somehow?
