    The 1963 Photo Lab Index says dilute Ansco 125 1:2 for paper, for film, dilute 1:1 and for softer results, 1:3.

    I seem to remember the film developer was diluted more than the paper developer, so it seems this would not be it. I think I remember something more like 1:5, but it's been 35-years.

    My Ansco 130 formula is the same as Mike's GAF 130.

    ... mike - does it give any film dilutions for "gaf" ( ansco ) 125 developer?

    - if it says 1:5 for film ... it might be the same thing that juan and i used.

    - john[/quote]

    It sure does:

    Water 750 ml
    Metol 3.0 grams
    Sulfite 44.0 grams
    Hydroquinone 12.0 grams
    Sodium Carbonate 65.0 grams
    Potassium Bromide 2.0 grams
    Water to 1 liter

    Paper development dilute 1:2 or 1:4 for softer prints
    For Film Dilute 1:1 for 3-5 minutes or 1:3 and develop 3-5 minutes


    This version of the handbook has some other intersting GAF formula, if anyone is interested I would be willing to publish them

    I am now convinced that absolutely everything is for sale on ebay. I did a search there and found one of the darkroom kits I had bought in 1968. I was wrong about the name of the developer - it's actually Vividol.

    Of course, that raises more questions as neither my Agfa book nor my Photo Lab Index list any developer called Vividol - and a google search turns up nothing. Does anyone have anything on this developer?

    Vividol is a proprietry GAF developer, and part of the Vivi series of chemicals, Vividol, Vivistop, and Vivifix.

    According to the description Vividol is a universal developer for roll and sheet film as well as papers.

    Interesting note on storage life:

    Unopened can - indefnite
    Solution in tank with floating lid - 1 month
    Solution in completely filled bottle - 6 months

    The description does not provide dilution details and refers you to the instructions on the can.

    Source Page 426 1978 Version of the PhotoLan index.

    Regards

    i emailed the guy selling the ebay "kit" - the package of vividal says :

    All-Purpose Developer for Papers and Film..... use full strength for paper development and 1 to 3 parts water for film.. Tray use full strength..Tank 1 to 3.

    Seems like different stuff than I had ( Juan too ) ...

    I should have figured this out earlier as with my experience with the keeping properties of Glycin I think this eleiminates ANSCO 130 as another name for Vividol.

    I just tried my old working solution (1:2) of Ansco 130 - it's over 2 months old by now.

    It still works. No discernible difference from new, even with FB papers.

    I tried it with just about the whole range from Bergger, plus Forte Polywarmtone, old Guilleminot, and Ilford MG IV RC.

    My problem is with the raw glycin before it is put into solution. Wthin 4 weeks or so it has turned light brown and nowhere near as potent as fresh.

    My Glycin is also light brown, but I've seen no loss of potency. I bought 100g from Monocrom last October, so I still have 09g or so to se if it changes with time. On a side note, my FX2 film developer was left in an open glass beaker for a week between uses with no ill effects. Given that I stand-developed the last batch for 90 minutes it would probably have worked anyway...
