PE. Thank-you. I haven't seen the Formulary's site before although I've heard of it.

Of course there's nothing saying that these TMAX reversal kits wont work and here's two conflicting reports that i found.
Ken Paul Rosenthal: 'The TMAX kit was designed for Plus-X and Tri-X black and white reversal stocks' . However Ken does not detail or show his B&W results, so I'm not going to take it as gospel.
aca91: 'I developed a super 8 roll of Tri-X with a Tmax Reversal Kit and got nothing from it'
of course, it's only one anecdote, and he could have just got something wrong.
It's interesting as, although I probably wont be able to get the Formulary kit in the UK, I might be able to get the Kodak one. So if it was known to work, it might be worth investigating.
