    Re: I need FIX Hardner: ALUM?

    i use sprint speedfixer it doesn't smell at all.
    i've tried tf5(or 4) it reeked so badly of ammonia ( or something else ) i put in
    my waste haul bucket and had it hauled away .. never even used it.
    haven't ever used anything but the sprint stuff .. except for random
    times i have used hypo ... the stuff is so cheap at adorama i couldn't help myself !

    I don't wish to discourage anybody from learning about hardener, but for what it's worth: I've been working with my own dry plates for more than a year now and have never had a problem with frilling, etc. I started with Kodak Professional Fixer, which I believe hardens, but have been using TF-4 with the last several batches with no issues. FWIW.

    Update sorta, about hardner.

    I have not given up looking into all sorts of things including this topic.

    Seems many are not very forthcoming with existing knowledge. So be it. I had the same problem with Gas Burst tech. Now I know and use Gas Burst. My info on that is available.

    I'll keep my secrets now too.

    Don't call me a bad sport, perhaps it's really about liability.

    I suspect that copyright infringement has crossed the minds of most folks, thus the unwillingness to post a verbatim formula from the Cookbook.
    Currently, it appears that Heico still makes an Aluminum chloride hardner (NH-5), available from Freestyle.
    Also, Kodak Hardner for Rapid Fix is available as well.
