    Michael&#39;s amidol is unique to him...it&#39;s Gennert&#39;s amidol which was bottled almost 100 years ago. It&#39;s no more available to us than is Super XX. I&#39;ve never had a single flake of recently manufactured amidol not go into solution. I would imagine that our modern day stuff is far more pure than Michael&#39;s.

    The last amidol that I purchased from Formulary is difficult to dissolve. In fact sometimes not all of it does dissolve. It is quite dark in color and has been sealed from the time that I received it from them. Seems to work O.K. though.

    David,
    Was the Amidol that you purchased locally any less expensive then Formulary? I believe that I paid &#036;210.00 per lb.

    Donald,

    &#036;155 a pound is what I (would have) paid. Although I bought 100 grams.

    Donald,

    About the Amidol not dissolving, I noticed that Michael Smith had that happen at his recent workshop, although the stuff worked just fine. He noted that it never really dissolves for him but it doesn&#39;t affect anything.

    Mine dissolves just fine. I have no idea what the difference is, although as I mentioned at the very top of this thread my stuff has a VERY different consistency than Michael&#39;s or Formulary&#39;s. I bought some from Formulary just to see if it would be different, and it looks completely different and dissolves differently, but the prints are exactly the same.

    David,

    That is interesting. If you would please, email me offpost the name of your supplier of the non-formulary amidol. BTW did you get my emails about the 8X20 camera?

    Regards,
    Donald Miller

    David,
    As I recall, you had indicated an interest in the 8X20 format. There is a camera for sale and I emailed you to make you aware of it.
