February 22, 2010, from Lloyd Erlick,
six minutes in each bath, so a total of twelve minutes, at normal processing temperature (for me, 21C).
same for film and FB paper. (Not the same batch of fix, though ...)
I don't test prints or fixer, I'm afraid. I never let my fixer come close to exhaustion, I never keep it around more than a few days after mixing it, and for important work I make up fresh fix and change it often. Excuses, excuses.

How long are you fixing for in your 2 bath plain fix Lloyd? I didn't notice that in your post. Are you testing your prints for residual silver?
