Ethol T.E.C. (which stands for thin emulsion compensating)
Difficult to find. Last year I called Calumet looking for some. They didn't know if they had any or if not, when they could get more. Not in any mood to go out of their way to sell me a case. So I let it slide.
You reminded me I should maybe try again. Someone must want my money...
Strange! A search of their cambridge site shows they sell it and can be ordered onlined.

Ethol T.E.C. is available from Brandess Kalt Aetna (www.bkaphoto.com) and also from B&H Photo, though for some reason they won't ship it. You have to go to their store.
Google shows a few mentions of Ethol Blue, but nobody offering to sell it.
John--there's a store in my town, that has a few bottles of TEC on the shelf...most of that stuff hasn't moved very well. I'm one of the few customers they have who actually seems to be buying the darkroom stuff still. LPD was similar in some ways. I had to order it by the case, and it wasn't until maybe 5 yrs ago, that they started to stock it on the shelves. They still have an odd assortment though--TEC, TST developer, FG7, TG7, accufine, diafine etc. this store stocks sprint, nacco, kodak, ilford, agfa and the BKA products though--just not in huge quantities.
Thank you kindly for the link to Freestyle for T.E.C. I have bookmarked it.
Since moving to the East Coast from Hollywood thirty years ago, I forget about the old suppliers out there. Having renewed my relationship with Freestyle a few months ago (for Kentmere paper) I was very impressed with their customer service and their packing department. Should have checked for chemistry as well.
As Sergeant Preston of the RCMP used to say on the radio, "Thanks to you, King, the case is closed".
