I've been thinking about giving it a try for awhile, so I'm about to order the developing tank, chemicals, and everything else I need from B&H.There's a local camera store that normally stocks this stuff, but they're in the process of moving. They have been keeping their inventory low for about the past month so that will be less stuff to move to the new location. So I'll get it from B&H. Don't plan on printing, just developing negs. Then "scan" them with a DSLR and macro setup.

Kewl.  Keep us up to date on your progress.

 

And let us know how you feel when you pull it out of the tank!

I ordered the hardware I needed from B&H-tank thermometer, beakers, and 3 rolls of Ilford FP4. Next week on pay day I'll order the chemicals and 4 or 5 more rolls of film.
