    I was first trained (in my very lame highschool darkroom) using Dektol for both film and paper developing. A 1:9 mix for film was our standard, though our teacher usually tried to talk us into stretching our chemicals out even further than that.

    To be honest when I finally started off on my own and did some reading I was rather surprised that there actually WERE separate film developers out there. What a crazy world! My prints have never been the same - typically for the better, though I still enjoy the high-contrast look of my highschool prints.

    I'll see if I can dig up the negs later...

    i used to do the same thing, techpan was the closest thing to
    kodalith film, after kodalith became hard to get.
    i seem to remember the instructions said to shoot at 250
    and process in dektol ( 1:2 ) for about 3 or 4 minutes ..
    but it was a while ago ...
    im empty, good luck
