    Try B&H, they to have some in stock, look for "Polygrade Warm Plus - same stuff I believe - if you click on "more info", Polywarmtone is described as the product, or as the old version of the same . I'm not absolutely sure, so check it out and judge for yourself.

    May make a lot of sense but not so much more than
    other methods as posts this thread will verify. Ansel
    did use a 'Plain fixer" made alkaline with sodium
    sulfite prior to toning with KRST in a solution
    of Kodak HCA.

    Of course there is always the question of what is the
    sensible thing to do and what are the priorities.
    Sensible being an observance of the priorities.

    I'd say the usual top priority is convenience.
    Repeatedly pouring fixer in and out of a bottle and
    tracking the square inches processed is convenient
    for some. It ignores though the actual condition of the
    used fixer. The condition of the fixer should be the top
    priority. Counting square inches is a one-size fits all
    papers approach which can lead to wide margins
    for error and good chemistry down the drain.

    With the condition of the fixer as the top priority
    it's proof of doing well is the print it self. My method
    establishes a chemistry minimum for each paper. What
    ever the dilution happens to be using a standardized
    processing technique I'm assured of a thoroughly
    fixed print with little margin of chemistry
    going down the drain. Dan
