    True about its being lost - I really surprised myself when I found mine - I haven't seen that thing for *years*.

    I've been giving the "twirly" idea some thought. Certainly a different way to agitate, but it might just be useful - a sort of milder form of agitation - somewhere between inversion and stand development.

    The idea is to get fresh developer to the film periodically without creating bubbles by too vigourous shaking ..."twirling" might not be bad idea.

    ok this may seem crazy, but soak it in coke cola over night. The cola will dissolve a nail in a matter of days, it may be enough to break up that gunk. It also works to leave old flat coke in the toilet as tolet bowl cleaner FYI. The sugar residue is a whole lot easier to clean out than that gunk.

    Cheryl, do you load this film in the darkroom, or in a changing bag?

    Just thinking of light-leak vulnerabilities.....

    are you 100% sure the film is spooling correctly in the camera before you remove the roll?

    I load the film in my darkroom -- no light leaks at all. Yes, the film is completed spooled before I remove the roll -- and I almost always unload it in the darkroom. I'm stumped.

    Are you sure it's not your electric personality shining in the dark? :lol:
