    For really random agitation; put a wide heavy rubber band around the tank to hold the lid on and roll it down the basement stairs every 30 seconds. Also good exercise and gives you something to do between agitation cycles.

    I just surround my developing tank with a number of LeRoy Neiman paintings, it gets pretty well agitated that way.

    Well i invert 6 times every 30 and my prints are better than Ansel Adams.
    Obviously, the extra inversion is for modesty.

    Indeed, most work claimed to be better than AA actually looks as though it has been kicked to the curb.

    I do the "Shake-A-Puddin'" dance when I develop my film:

    That makes sense. I only invert mine four times and my prints are worse than those of Ansel Adams!

    The only "trick" I know is to be consistant with time, temp, and agitation.

    Does it work with elevators? Or do I need to adjust time and dilution?

    Just a thought, rolling the tank down the up escalator.
