TMX in Ilfosol-S? : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I'm considering giving Ilfosol-S (at 1:14) a try with 120 TMX in a CPE-2+, which runs at 75 rpm. It looks like an interesting developer, containing Hydroquinone, Sodium Sulfite, Sodium Carbonate and Sodium Ascorbate. Anyone done this?

I've not used it with a rotary processor, but it's a nice developer for Tmax, IMHO. I use it at the standard dilution of 1+9.

A long overdue update. This combination has become my standard for 120. I'm using a time of 6 min. 15 sec. at 75 degrees for "N" which for me means printing on grade 3. I've recently made a first test run of 4x5 TMX in a Jobo 3006 drum with the same conditions. Results indicate that a bit more development time is necessary, but there hasn't yet been sufficient free personal time to perform further iterations. Different agitation with the larger Jobo processor probably accounts for the variation from 120 densities.
