Hi Tony,
I will put the question to Phil at CHS tomorrow as I agree with you on this one. It used to smell of White Spirit but this batch smells different and a little more unpleasent. [Frown] Kev.

GS1200 Xenon with Elmo 1.0...great combo along with a 16-CL Xenon for that super bright white light.

I came across this in the Kodak Photo-amateur Pocketbook for 1965:

Water 20 ounces 500 c.cm.
ChloralHyrdrate 2 ounces 50 grams
Gelatin 1/2 ounce 12-5 grams

Dissolve the chloral hydrate first. Allow the gelatin to swell in the cold, then warm the solution on a water bath and stir until all the gelatin is dissolved.
Do not warm beyond 140 F. (60 C.).

This solution is applied to the film at room temperature, and allowed to dry. It coats the surface with a thin layer of gelatin, which in effect fills in the scratches and makes them invisible.

It is a treatment for negatives, but would be suitable for movie film. The only problem is that it would take forever to dry.

Getting the chloral hydrate might be difficult in these safety-conscious times.
