    ID-78 is remarkably similar but you would have to mix it yourself.
    You could also try the new Harman Warmtone developer from Ilford - both of these seem to have been recommended highly by those who have used them. The Ilford comes only in 1 litre packagings however.

    Hope this helps,

    Lachlan

    I've been pretty happy with Edwal Platinum II... especially with Forte PWT. It also worked well with Ilford WT. I didn't get that greenish cast as I was getting with Ethol LPD and the Ilford. I've also been told that Zonal-Pro Warmtone is good, and I'd like to try it as well as I can't always find the Edwal.

    ZonalPro Warmtone also goes well with Forte Fortezo and Kentmere Kentona.

    Thanks for the replys. I've used the Zonal Pro but wasn't happy with it. One thing about Nutol was that it would last for days...not that I always need that but it was good it did. I'll try the Ilford to see what its like. I prefer liquid for warm tone dev. since I don't use it all the time. I use the Zone VI paper dev. mostly.

    Thanks again

    Since you liked the results you were getting with Neutol WA,

    I strongly second Lachlan's recommendation for Ilford - ID 78

    Its easy and inexpensive to mix it yourself, it works great, and it has a long working life.

    How about Ilford's new Warm Tone developer?

    One of the best W/T developers is the old Ansco 130 formula which is Glycin based. Bit expensive to mix though with the cost of Glycin these days. Ilfords new Warm Tone sounds good, can't wait to try some.

    I use Fotospeed WT10 (although I don't know if it's available outside the UK). The warmth varies with dilution - the more dilute, the warmer it gets. I can still get full blacks on Ilford WTFB and Fotospeed Legacy) at 1+29, but after that it gets a bit 'soft'.
