    Peter,
    What dilution did you use with the HC-110?

    I am also curious about what dilution you are using Peter. I'm now using a very strong concentration of Dektol to get enough density with the MI-Dup film. I also like the fact that Dektol is relatively cheap and, as a paper developer, would not oxidize as quickly in the tray? I did use HC-110 with lith film at very low concentration. But HC-110 is known to give little fog with the longer developing times I was using (up to 18 minutes).
    I am curious to the reasoning behind using for the x-ray dupe film?

    sorry everyone..use 1:3 dilution...reasons to use: repeatable and easy results...you also work in with a red safelight and can see what you are doing

    So, that 1:3 from syrup? That's going to get pricey fast! I would go through 1/4 bottle of HC-110 per tray!

    I don't know how it works with the Fuji film but the Kodak GBX comes as a pair and should last about a month. 1qt concentrate : 3 qts water but the bottles are graduated so you can mix a smaller amount in that ratio. Excellent results with x-ray duplicating film. Use a water "stop". Developing time is a matter of taste mine is 2 to 3 minutes depending on desired contrast. Also a red safelight. I have used that combo for many years.

    I don't see how using HC110 is any easier and more repeatable than any other developer-- and the 1:3 dilution is ridiculous. Safelight use has nothing to do with the developer, it's the spectral sensitivity of the film.

    I'm in total agreement.

    Having not heard from Peter as to dilution, I will try dilution B as that is a pretty common one for film and is easy to mix...1:31. I will get back as to how well the HC-110 works for me.
