life. We have deliberately used this on an intermittent basis over
the past few years (eg: used, then bottled and used three months
later, then perhaps the next week, then another gap of a couple
of months ... and so on over these five years to cover the equivalent
of an "occasional" amateur! Users have reported having
to leave unused for five years - then "trying it out"
on a test film and being delighted that it still worked perfectly).
the Developer (One litre) is used repeatedly, being replenished
after each use with 20ml Replenisher per full 35mm/120 film - or
pro-rata, eg: 5ml per 5"x4" sheet film. Part "B"
is diluted for use, used once and discarded. The kit contains 1
litre each of Developer Part "A", Part "B" and
"Replenisher". As a guide, you can process at least 52
x 35mm/120 films per kit BUT this can be extended (apparently indefinitely
from our useage!) by purchasing extra parts "B" and "Replenisher"
when required. Thus, very economic in use! We finally succumbed
after using for over 7 years and made up a new kit from scratch
at that time after using our ORIGINAL "test kit", we were
on our 21st bottle of Replenisher ie: over 1,100 varying films through
since first made up and used in October 1991! However, the original
kit was still working well - but due more dyes in recent films,
was beginning to look a bit murky, so decided on a change for cosmetic

formulated for the fine-print worker seeking maximum controls over
image quality and colour. For example, Formula One can even help
produce blue-black tones on a chloro-bromide emulsion.
Add to normal
print developers to improve quality of image and reduce fog (useful
also for outdated materials to improve results). Generally add only
5ml per litre working strength print developer, making this very
economic in use. 20ml per litre will produce neutral to blue-black
tones on chloro-bromide emulsions, depending on developer used and
length of development time. Enables lengthy development times, for
special effects, without staining or fogging.

them very economical. Kit sizes shown mean supply of the same size
of stock for all three parts in each kit. As a guide, the bleach
is made up in ratio of 1:9 and can be reused until exhausted! Parts
"A" and "B", normal mix, is one part of each
plus eight parts water. (NOTE: You can use just the Bleach to first
bleach the print, followed by a couple of washes and then redevopment
using any B&W print developer, to change the print colour without
toning, as an alternative!)

for Negatives and Prints! Briefly, the image is treated in the toner

then washed and redeveloped in new or used PRINT developer [developer
not supplied in kit - use any good print developer - yes, even for
negatives!] to restore the image with increased densities. Can be
startling on prints! Normal working solution made by mixing one
part each of "A" and "B" with eight parts water.
Kits contain same quantities stock for both parts, with "A"

WEIGHTS AND COSTS FOR MAILING KITS
item is shown a "Postal Weight". To calculate how much
to add for postage, add up the relevant postal weights shown per
kit to find a weight total. Then, you could get an information leaflet
from a Post Office branch outlet or a search using the Internet.
Otherwise, please enquire by e-mail and we will check ourselves
to suit the potential order weight. If
you want to order one or more kits - please enquire via e-mail,
stating what you want to order and your location. We will then check
the combined postal costs and will advise you of the total and how
to pay that via PayPal.
If you are
uncertain about anything, please do e-mail for advice and we will
respond as quickly as possible after checking the appropriate cost
to your location at the local Post Office. We have had to remove
the - even updated - postal cost guide due too many frequent changes
so decided it was better to actually advise according to any specific
order's weight "at the time". Many thanks for your understanding
as we obviously have no control over such matters. To help, if you
can check yourself, we have indicated the postal weights as shown
above as a guide.
