    I bought a bottle of TF-4 from Monochrom in Germany. Maybe Silverprint carries it as well?

    I have to admit that I don't support Formulary that much. I wanted to compare TF-4 with my own mix: TF-4 wins barely on speed, my own is a clear winner on smell. And I thought that was bad - I'd have to get a very much better ventilation system for my darkroom if I were to use TF-4 on a regular basis!

    I will share, as soon as I've tested a few prints to destruction. So far it works, it works well, and it's a lot cheaper than TF-4 or any other commercial mix. It ramains to be seen how well it fixes, I need to run a few more tests. I don't want to be blamed if your prints all start rotting

    ann,

    Ah ha, Tim Rudman.
    I've heard a romour that Santa has reserved one of the last copies of the current print run of his photographers master printing guide.
    Been looking for this book for a while.
    I wasn't keen on HCA as it's another big tub of solution, another step and another tray. My darkroom is tiny, only the Nova 12x16inch fiber processor I recently purchased makes a big print possible. Print washing is in the bath in the bathroom.
    Most people seem to stress the importance of HCA, and I guess it should save time overall plus make me feel more confident about the washing.
    So there will now be two 12x16 trays in the bath.
    I take it one tray half full of HCA will clear a number of prints.

    Meanwhile I hope santa really has got that bloomin book for me.
