    Who is your supplier?

    Well, it’d be a shame to lose it, but I think a high contrast fine grain Ortho film would be easier to make than a pan film.

    8x10 XRay Dev Hanger by Nokton48, on Flickr

    For use in my 8x10 Sinar Norma, I have some ERA 100, some very old HP5 (not+!) and a fresh box of Ilford Commercial Ortho+ I just got from B&H. $5.16 per 8x10 sheet on the Commercial Ortho+.

    I want to try XRAY film, so I bought 100 sheets of Fuji 8x10 HRU on Ebay. I just cut down this Kodak 8x10 Film Hanger, so now it fits in a Patterson 8x10 tray. Has anybody here ever tried this method?

    I have a gallon of Acufine mixed up (and replenisher) and I be giving this a go soon.
    40 cents for an 8x10, 20 cents for a 5x7, 10 cents for a 4x5 sheet. Now I will be able to play under the safelights.

    I prefer a slick bottomed tray w/o ridges. Never a scratch with these.

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

    I just got some 8x10 Carestream Ektascan that I’m planning to try with Pyrocat HD, water stop and TF-4 fixer. Do I need three flat bottomed trays or just the first one for the developer?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Three. Or use single tray processing.

    Using that holder in the tray is not going to help you at all with scratching. The film will sag and still touch the bottom of the tray and it just adds extra steps (loading and unloading the holder) adding more possibilities for scratching.

    OK Thanks for these responses. I'll get some smooth flat bottomed trays.

    I use hangers in the traditional way and Pyrocat. I very rarely get scratches. That makes me think the scratching comes when the film is wet, not when it is dry.
