    David,

    I would start somewhere around 10 or 11 minutes at 68 degrees, rating the film around EI80. This has worked ok for me in the past. I am developing my 4x5 film in a slosher.

    thanks brian.

    1+1 is 9:30
    1+3 is 14

    So 1+2 is probably 11:45

    That's what I will try.

    Right, but this is based on maufacturers times, which are always high. I would start with 10:30 at EI 80. That should be a good starting time.

    In my Jobo CPP-2 I use XTOL 1+1 for about 7'30'' with a 5' pre-wash for ACROS shot at IE 64, never tried 1:2 since this wouldn't allow me to use the minimum recommended stock solution per film (about 100 ml for 135 or 120).

    I've used it 1+2 at 13 minutes, EI 100. Very sharp and highlights seemed about right. I use invesrsion though - you may want to adjust this for tray or rotary to account for the different agitation.
