hello

ive been reading this thread and become curious...

im doing my own rapid fixer adapting a old agfa formula (maybe 105 0r 108) and i mix this:

h20 750ml 52c
sodium thiosulfate - 200gr
ammonium chloride - 40gr
sodium metabisulfite - 20 gr
borax - 20gr
h2o to 1000ml

it comes out just a bit acidic and almost odorless and i use one liter to fix around 10 films for 5 mins each at 20c running water

for paper its around the same amonunt! when doing important stuff i use the two bath method

always undiluted


i wash the film for 20-30 mins and fb paper 45min-1hour 20 +-2


sometimes for film (mainly at home) i use this alcaline fixer


h20 750ml 52c
sodium thiosulfate - 200gr
ammonium chloride - 40gr
sodium sulfite - 15 gr
borax - 12gr
h2o to 1000ml


it gets just a bit alcaline and has a faint ammonia smell

clearing times are always under 30 seconds even in colder solutions

for safety i always wash for 15-20min running water

am i doing well?
