I recall experimenting with reversal of b & w negative film. The recommended film was an Adox product, but
panatomic-x was handier and did work too, but apparently not quite as well. Also worked with kodalith to make
pc board masks from magazine article project boards. There were many more electronics stores for supplies in
those days. Lately I haven't even been checking out electronics magazines; are any still around? Ok, I'll stop
since this OT thread may be getting too long for some.
