Default Kodak Selectol-Soft

Does anyone know if Kodak D-165 formula is the same as their Selectol-Soft?

I have a note of D-165 formula in my old note book but can't find where I got it from and I can't find any reference to it on the web?

Hi Trevor

There is a post on APUG by Kieth Tapscott who I have seen on FADU which mentions Selectol-Soft being a modified version of D165, so maybe Kieth can give you an answer on this one, but in the meantime here is a link to the post 3rd posting down the page

The formula that I've used for years is as follows:

Metol 6.0gr
Sodium Sulphite 25.0gr
Sodium Carbonate 37.0gr
Pot Brom 10% sol'n 5ml per litre working dev

The volume of Pot Brom solution can be varied depending on the degree of warmth you wish in the final print.

I'm fairly certain that it is the same as D165

That is more or less what I have as D-165, the only difference is I've got down 1g KBr/L stock solution. But as you rightly say this is flexible depending on warmth required.
