1. Five minute presoak

3. 30 second stop bath at 1/4 of normal dilution (acetic acid)
4. Four minute fix
5. twenty minute wash consisting of 5 dumps and refills.

I use BTZS type tubes...the same ones that Francesco uses...I believe... since I built them for him.

My times for Grade two Azo (1.65 density range) are as follows:

SBR 7 ---26 minutes
SBR 6 ---38 minutes
SBR 5 ---50 minutes

My times for enlarging on VC materials (condensor enlarger 1.15 DR) are as follows:
SBR 7 ---16 minutes
SBR 6 ---28 minutes
SBR 5 ---38 minutes

Hope that this helps. Good luck

Don, Francesco, Sandy, et al,

How did you work out your development times? Hopefully not a whole bunch of trial and error. I will be doing this soon, but without the aid of densitometer.
