Therefore I don't think you can reuse much between E6 and b&w reversal except, maybe, the FD. You could, of course, also use the E6 CD as b&w redeveloper, but there should be cheaper alternatives.
So theoretically, if I had some leftover E-6 and no more rolls to process I could run B&W rolls through it and get B&W slides?

I have some E6 in the basement and no chrome left to use it on so I would love to know.
