    If your big concern is the cost of fixer, I have a solution for you. Kodak's Flexicolor Fixer and Replenisher works perfectly well on B&W materials, both film and paper. I use it all the time, and it works great. $10 US buys enough fixer concentrate to make up to 5 gallons of working strength solution in New York. Because I can source it locally, I don't pay shipping. The fixer itself is very fast, and seems to last forever. I've found that using it at half strength (1+9) from concentrate works as well as the standard dilution for B&W work for even better value.

    Thanks Frank. That's the second endorsement for Kodak's Flexicolor Fixer. I'll have a look see what I can source locally.

    I too have eliminated the stop, film and prints. Develop -
    Fix, both being very dilute and one-shot. All works in
    very nicely when ONE tray processing. Dan
