    Sorry for creating confusion, Kevin. My typing fingers got out of synch with my brain.

    My sentence should have said: " I rinse the film in water for about 1 minute before going into the FIXING bath."

    I do not use a stop bath. Or, if you like, I use a water rinse as my stop bath.

    I use the H2O as the stop and don't use the stop bath chemicals at all. Just into the water for a minute and then in the fixer. Confusion is a state of mind where I live almost all the time now days.

    Shew, I thought I misread something. Thanks!

    I have one more question and hate to sound like an idiot but here it goes. When you do the rinse to you place the neg in a tray with running water or just put the neg in a tray of water and agitate for a minute?

    Thanks again,

    Kev

    Sounds like a good idea, or we can simply post the recipes as a short article to make it easier to track down.

    More years ago than I like to admit, but like to brag about, Edwal fixer concentrate came with a suggestion that you add fixer concentrate directly to the used developer, using both in one-shot manner. I have found that this also works with TF4. You need enouugh head space, if you using a tank, to hold 1/16 of the amount of developer, so you may have to pour out a little developer. This trick comes in handy sometimes when you're on the road and want to see some results before you leave the scene. You carry a tank, a bottle of developer concentrate, a bottle of fixer concentrate and a graduate.

    Needless to say, you agitate vigorously after adding the fixer to the developer to get thorough and rapid mixing.

    Not much, if anything. It is convenient in terms of number of vessels you carry or maintain, and consistent because of the one-shot use. I have not tried it with true stand developing, so I don't know if it has advantages there, but I would be willing to take Tom Hoskinson's word for it.

    I just developed a roll of Kodak TMY 400 in Pat Gainer's PC-TEA developer (Triethanolamine, L-ascorbic acid, phenidone). I used Pat's one-shot fix procedure (TF-4 concentrate). The agitation was gentle, 10 seconds/minute for 9.5 minutes at 70F. I am attaching the densitometry data and curve that resulted (as a PDF file).

    I have another roll of 120 TMY exposed under identical conditions. I try it stand developed for 13 minutes and post the results.
