Although they're all available as kits, I find it far less expensive to just keep a supply of the raw chemicals and mix them ad hoc.

I don't mix my own because it gives me any particular advantage. It's just that they're not available premixed or are prohibitively expensive premixed. When I develop negatives I intend to enlarge I usually use Defender 777, which is only available as a kit of pre-measured powders (when it's available, which it doesn't seem to be at present).
hi jim

i spoke with someone at bluegrass packaging just last week about 777
and she said they are waiting or looking for 1 component chemical ...
i mentioned a few places she might or might not have known about,
where she might or might not be able to procure whatever it is she may or may not
be looking for. ( secret formula )
