    Here are my numbers.

    For 250 ml of Developer, start with about 175ml water, add
    A = 16ml, B = 2.66ml, C = 3.64ml, starter = 2.5ml
    top up graduate to 250ml

    Bleach and fix I mixed up 1 liter each per box instructions that I keep around and replenish per the numbers on the box as I run rolls through.

    Stabilizer I only mix what I need for the day using the box replenishment number to make 250ml.
    Mark, why 250 ml??? That is not enough to process a roll of film. My handheld tank uses 550ml for a single roll of 120 or 35mm

    Barry,

    It is the ratio that is important here, you need to create the right strength of solution, it is not not 250ml specifically. I actually did the math originally to get the numbers for a full liter but in my Nikor tanks, 250ml covers one roll, 500-2, 750-3, so I just use/kept those numbers.

    The place where 250ml is important is that it is the smallest amount of the normal working solution needed to develop a 36 exposure roll of 135 or 1 roll of 120.

    Much depends on your tank but your number sounds too high. The tank does not need to be full. In fact I purposefully leave at least one reel out and only fill the tank enough to cover the reels. This leaves a significant air space at the top which I think helps the replenished bleach work better, it needs aeration. Given that the developer is typically mixed moments before use and then immediately discarded, maybe 15-minutes total exposure, the air doesn't have time to affect it.

    To find your real numbers throw a reel in your tank and then fill until the reel is just covered/submerged, dump this into a graduate, remember that number; that is the minimum amount of chemicals I would use.

    Thanks Mark, I am going to try my hand soon. I need to finish up one more reel of color film.

    This sounds like a separate bleach and fix solution (not "blix") is that correct?

    I've been looking for something along these lines.

    And what was the total cost of everything for one batch including shipping charges?

    Hi...I haven't ordered mine as yet but it will be about $120 for one kit and starter coming from Liberty Photo in Minneapolis being shipped to my Oregon West Coast address. And yes, it is a separate bleach and fix not a blix and that's one of the reasons I'm going with Trebla. The other is just because I can't find anywhere where I can easily buy everything Kodak C-41 I need in reasonable quantities (for my volume of film) without jumping through ungodly hoops.
