    The processing temp can not be adjusted on the sidekick (the only think I do not like about it) and is set at 75d.

    Processed for 10-minutes (=14min @ 68d) in Pyrocat-HD 1:1:100

    Jim,

    10 minutes at 75 degrees F with the 1:1:100 dilution of Tmax 400 film should have given you plenty of contrast for silver printing. The high reading of log 0.65 suggests to me that the developer is either bad or was not mixed correctly.

    Thanks Sandy.

    I purchased the Pyrocat-HD kit from Bostick & Sullivan so I assume that the chemicals are O.K.

    I guess I could have mixed it wrong. Wouldn't be the first time I screwed something up 1oz Part A / 1oz Part B / 100oz Water?

    I'll try another batch tonight when I get home from work and see how they turn out.

    Thanks again!

    Jim

    I'm processing my TMX in expert drums in Pyrocat 2:2:100, 1 liter of developer for 10 min at 68 neg shot in sunshine. My rotation speed is "3", whatever that translates to in RPM. I may overexpose by your standards. I rate TMX at 200 and place the shadows on zone IV with my spot meter.
    I'd be very interested to hear your results. I seem to print well on AZO Grade 2. Though I'm about to give up on 8x10 contact printing and go back to my favored 5x7 Tri-x enlarged to 10x13. But that's a story for another day...
    Take care,
    Tom

    Check my post of Delta films in Pyrocat-HD. You might try the Delta 100. My test prints were on Ilford VC paper.
