    Yes, all 2X is delicate, yet I have processed ULF 2X by hand unscratched up to 14X36"

    With bigger sheets I will do one at a time in the Cesco trays. Still while being washed they can easily scratch

    Another possibility for me is deep tanks, I have 3F 8x10 3.5 gals but have not set them up yet

    I bought SS rods from McMaster Carr and the dental clips will probably work good, I have put one together. But right now I am using the trays

    the few big sheets I did with 2 clips one on each end using a big Cesco with 2" of PQ under safelight

    See-saw dipping, reusing the middle center water stop tray for wash also

    12 minutes to done

    They were enlarged positives, which I put in a window box with backlight, so viewable only at night

    Now I want to make a simple Pano camera using 2 sheets

    I have been purchasing Carestream x-ray film from Z&Z Medical for the past 10 years but they no longer carry it. Can anyone recommend an alternative source for Carestream X-ray films in 8x10?

    All Traditional wet process X-Ray medical film is going away fast

    Some Industrial film may remain

    Ektascan is gone

    2X aka double sided is still sold at ZZ Like this

    I would try this next

    some out of date films may be on eBay

    It may be time to put a padlock on my film freezer.

    My 14X17 Ektascan does not fit!

    The 8X10 does

    It's all fine for the duration

    Re: Use of X-ray film: technical discussion with example images

    I am just getting started with x-ray film and would like very much if someone could give me some basic starting out information. I fully realize that there is everything I could every wish to know somewhere in these 500+ pages but I will be damned If I can find it. The search tool seem useless to me, or maybe I'M just stupid.
    I have some D23 developer coming, and some fixer but I don't have a baseline from which to start in the darkroom. I have read a bunch of pages and there are as many ways of going at it. I just need somewhere to start. I'm happy to experiment from there. Is anyone willing to do that please? I don't even know what I have left out of this post to make it understandable. Thank you in advance for any shred of help.

    Thank you very much. How much would I dilute the developer to start with so that I would have time to watch it work and soften contrast a little?
