    I soaked my cell in acetone - took about a week for it to dissolve and easily come apart. After cleaning the elements up, rather than balsam I used a drop of canola oil. I suspect that it is not as...

    Re: Discontinuing an e-Bay Sale . . .How?

    Just bought a 2020 Subaru Forester - the darn engine stalled at a red light on the way home - turns out that is a "feature". At 62 I honestly don't need any more "features" in my life.

    Re: Developer Question

    I agree - read Ken Lee's website for mixing my own. I was very frustrated with how Rodinal treated my Ilford films - the grain was horrible. D-23 seems to have taken care of that.
