    Tundra, Neither Ilford Rapid Fix or Hypam (essentially the same and same operating pH) should have any adverse effects with respect to pyro or catechol staining developers.

    Developers (in order preferred): Pyrocat-HD, PMK, HC-110, D-76, DK-50. On deck: D-23 and SLIMT processing with prior developers

    I "stop" in running water bath

    Fixer is currently PF TF4, but I may switch to Hypam since I don't see much advantage to the TF-4 and it is costly. I just have to make sure Hypam will work well with staining developers.

    No hypo clear. Just 25min in a Gravity Works film washer.

    Final rinse in PhotoFlo 200 with 30ml 91% Isolpropyl alcohol/liter of water for spot free drying.

    Papers: Anything decent I can get my hands on other than MGFB Classic which I don't much like but will use if that's all that's around. This includes Ultrafine Silver Eagle FB, Arista.Edu VCFB, Fomabrom 111 Variant III VC FB

    Developer: Dektol 1:2

    Stop: 6oz 28% Acetic Acid/gal water

    Fix: Ilford Hypam

    Hypo Clearing: PermaWash 3oz/gal water

    Toning: Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner 1:20-1:40 depending on paper

    Can you talk a little bit about your experience with SLIMT and how it is separate from- or complements a compensating developer like D-23?

    Why? I've never had a moment's problem with PF 200.

    Oh yes-- and Photo Flo. I use a disposable 2 cc pipette to drip into the final rise tray.
