Sodium Sulfite (anhydrous)...............44.0 grams
Hydroquinone.................................12.0 grams
Sodium Carbonate (anhydrous)..........65.0 grams
Potassium Bromide...........................2.0 grams
Water to make................................1,000ml

It is quite close to D-72 and Dektol in formulation. For use dilute 1+2 for development of times 1 to 2 min at 20 C. If you want a softer look, dilute 1+4 and develop for 3 minutes at 68 F/20 C.
That formula doesn't exactly match what I've seen for Agfa 125. Does anyone know whether the Sodium Carbonate should be anhydrous or monohydrous?

The formulas I've seen run like the following from Tom Hoskinson ....
