Curt, I've had several personal issues over the last couple of months that have gotten in the way of my work and printing. Very difficult times and more to come. I use the Pyrocat-HD for all of my film. 1:1:200 dilution in tanks for the 8x10 x-ray film and I need to build the hangers for the 11x14. I have the materials but have not gotten the time yet. The great thing about x-ray film other than being cheap is that you can use a red safelight during development and judge the contrast need for carbon printing. Hangers are the way to go. I've gotten some nice prints from x-ray film and as I recall I showed several at the workshop along with the negatives. Nice to experiment and not break the bank. The nice thing for me is that I use the 10x12 x-ray film as a tissue support for my 8x10 carbon prints.
