Sorry, I do not access to Tim Rudman's book. My local library does not have it and I wont be ordering anything from Amazon anytime soon. Another limitation is I do not have access to pre-mixed lith developer such as Fotospeed or Moerch. So I have to mix up my d-85. I mixed the solution A and solution (seperately of course) last week, but when I tried to use it today's session, nothing happened in an hour with stock 1:3 dilution. I even tried to throw in a piece of fogged paper in UNdiluted stock, nothing happened for an hour. It just turned into a salmon pink? The paper I am using is Kentmere FB Fineprint. I mixed up a new batch of both, the fogged paper only just started to turn black in the stock solution.
What is the starting point to dilut the 4A+1B D-85 solution as a lith print developer? And how long would solution A last? And also, what is the capacity of the stock solution or working solution for that matter? Thank you very much
