    "Films to be developed in this solution should be given twice the exposure usually given when alkali-containing developers are to be used. This developer keeps well."

    "This formula has been found to give excellent results with all makes of film. Grainless enlargements up to 20 diameters are consistently obtained from negatives developed in it and in the hands of a skilled photographer, good enlargements up to 50 diameters are possible."

    "De Fero has reported that in the Kodak DK-20 formula, the substitution of the Kodalk by 1/3 of it's weight of borax greatly improves the fine grain and keeping properties of the solution."

    "If a two-bath formula for divided development is desired, the solution is made up as above but omitting the borax. The film is treated 4 min. in this bath, then, without intermediate washing, it is held 4 - 6 min. in a solution of 5 grams of borax in 1,000cc of water. Divided development of this kind has the advantage that the developer does not become exhausted nearly as rapidly as the single solution types, assuming that the alkaline second bath is renewed frequently."

    Use crystalline boric acid, powdered is NOT suggested.



    "Mixing directions:
    Use a 1 gallon narrow mouthed bottle for mixing the developer. First check the volume of the bottle and mark it to indicate the exact level of 1 gallon of solution. Fill the bottle half full of water at about 90F and dissolve the chemicals in the order given. After adding each chemical, place the stopper in the bottle so that only a small quantity of air is present during agitation. When all the chemicals have been dissolved, add cold water until the solution comes up to the 1 gallon mark. Insert the stopper tightly to exclude as much air as possible. Allow the developer to stand about 2 hours after mixing. Cool to 68F before use. If only a portion of the contents of the bottle is used at one time, it is suggested that the balance be saved by filling a bottle of smaller size which should then be stopped tightly."

    How cool! Would you mind if these are included on the LF page for easier reference?

    Thanks so much. One of the formulas that caught my eye is the Kodak DK-93, which was recommended for those who suffer a skin irritation from metol. Turns out that "Kodelon" was (is) Kodak's trade name for Para-Aminophenol Hydrochloride, which is apparently the developing agent used in Rodinal (see "The Darkroom Cookbook" by Anchell, pg 26). Photographers' Formulary lists it as p-Aminophenol at about the same price as metol.

    Hi there,

    I'm glad everyone likes this, mixing your own is cheaper and actually better. There were more Agfa formulas but the page over-ran.

    Eric, thank you, it's good to find out what 'Kodelon' was.

    Neil, I think this should be moved to an article for easier reference but I don't know how. I'll finish the toners and misc. pages and upload them, then Q.T. and Tom can move them where ever.

    Jorge, maybe 'Burki's Pyro' could work out. It looks quick ,clean and to the point, they did not mention if it stains or not. Does look like it can be used as a 2-bath.

    Have fun people, back to typing.
