    I use rodinal almost exclusively for APX 25, APX 100 and Pan F+. Anything faster and I use xtol but I don't normally shoot anything fast.

    I just found a source for sodium sulfite for $2 per pound . The borax is laundry powder borax and too cheap to cost. I have tons of Hydroquinone given to me. Metol is $.75 if you get 100 gr at a time. Keep it im plastic bags inside the bottle it comes in so you keep air away from it.

    Mix time is 1/2 hr. Works as good as the package mix if not better.
    Please tell us your source for chems!

    I have a full bottle, unopened. I plan to start using it when I start ysing my hoard of APX100 in "odd" sheet sizes - 6.5x9cm and 13x18cm. Later this year?

    JIm, I've been using Neofin lately, with EFKE 25 and MACO IR 820c/400. Wonderful stuff - even the ISO400 IR film was smooooooth!

    I've used Rodinal regularly during the last year for MF but have converted to the God of Sodium Sulphite. For the occasions I do LF, I still use Rodinal (forever).
    Yes Ole, the Neofin developer is great too!

    I use it infrequently. My regular developers are ABC Pyro, Acufine, and occasionally PMK or D-76. I'm increasingly likeing RAF Pyro-Metol.

    I also use it infrequently. My regular developers are Pyrocat-HD, Agfa 8 and a Metol/Ascorbic Acid/TEA combination. I mix all of them from scratch.

    I used Rodial for 35mm and 120 films some twenty years ago. I have moved on to Aqulux 2 and T-Max & RS. I found rodinal a great developer for contrast control through dilution for the smaller format b&w films. I keep a unopened bottle of Rodinal in store, just in case the urge returns...

    I don't known how much sodium sulfite you use but The Chemistry Store http://www.chemistrystore.com/ has the following prices.

    2# $1.88/lb, 10# $1.46/lb, 25# $1.24/lb, 50# $1.05/lb

    They also stock several other chemicals of photographic interest such as hypo, sodium carbonate, propylene glycol, TEA, etc at very attractive prices.
