We had to invest in the Wing Lynch after it was decided that my time was better spent making the photographs rather than standing in the darkroom watching a clock for too many hours every other day.

    Sorry Ken, didn't mean to ignore your post...

    I have heard the 1 gallon kit, branded "Wind Lynch" is Kodak. I am using it in a Jobo ATL2300 processor and have little experience with either E6 kits or Jobos, so I am pretty much clueless.

    Think I need to purchase a fresh Kodak Kit and dump this kit; it takes too much time and effort to mess it up due to aged chemistry...

    thanks.

    OK, so I got 2 more rolls that are not real important subject-wise (I am sure I can scan and make my family happy with results), so I am going to push it a stop (1st developer from 6 to 9 minutes @ 101.5F) and double the fix time (why not?) to see what happens.

    If it happens to make some good slides, I'll keep the remainder of the kit, otherwise, down the drain...

    Should know in about 30 minutes...

    Increasing 1st developer will lower dmax by making the negative image more foggy. It will increase speed.

    Increasing fix will probably have no effect.

    Inconclusive Results

    Well, its my own fault, but the results are inconclusive.

    I processed 2 more rolls, shot with 2 different point and shoot 35mm cameras we keep around the house to grab shots here and there

    The film is all Kodak Ektachrome 160 but the cameras differ, so ...

    One roll benefited from the 1 stop push (still slightly magenta) , one seems to have suffered (blacks are decidedly Olive).

    I am thinking, dump it and start over with a fresh E6 kit.

    Kino;

    That olive look is typical of incomplete reversal in the reversal bath! I can clearly see it in the scans. Looks like the stannous chloride has gone bad or is too dilute.

    You get part of a positive and part of a negative image in the darker tones.
