    B&H says the Tetenal 1-liter kit is discontinued, so the only option now is the Arista kit.

    The tetenal kits may still be available in europe. I don't know if that's just some remaining stock or what. But that's not going to help here in the US.
    Actually cambridge camera still has them on their web site.
    I ordered one just to see what would happen.
    Checked with them today and they said they were waiting to hear from their importer.
    I don't think there is much hope.

    Guess I should have paid more attention to your name and picture. Obviously a cine person. I never did my own reversal 8mm because of lack of a good tank and reel. Out of curiosity do you have a tank/reel that takes 25 or 100 feet?

    Citrazinic acid: I am continue to use my 1# supply purchased way back when, when Kodak Organics was still in business. I suspect it is available as reagent somewhere, but expect it to be expensive and require a commercial license to purchase.

    HQ monosulfate isn't available anywhere that I could find it, but PE contributed to a thread recently on making it in solution. Crystalizing from solution is evidently not practical. I have used with some success alternative formulations for E-6 based on MPQ (metol-phenidone-hydroquinone) that can be made to work quite well, but will not duplicate the official processing.

    The Fuji 5L kit is excellent and still available.

    IC I have a 50 foot reel tank. Wish I had 100 ft though ;-)

    Thanks MTS. Great at least if I find some citrizinic it should have a good shelf life.
    Do you remember PE's thread on converting the hydroquinone? My searches have found anything yet.

    Polyglot who distributes the fuji kits in the USA?

    thanks guys

    You'll probably have to get it shipped from Europe, but it's still much cheaper ($120+shipping for 50 rolls capacity) than buying bulk professional chemistry and having most of it go off.
