Different films will require different levels of solvent. I use a "hypo" solution that I add to the developer just as I use it, in a one-shot metheod. I documented what I did here... http://myfilmstuff.blogspot.ca/2011/...l-process.html .
mrred. It seems that D76 is out for me. I've heard of people using Dektol. Nice to see you documenting and sharing your method on your blog. Have you got any samples?

Dektol uses sodium sulfite so I guess should be fine with a permanganate bleach.
