    after first steps with Fomabrom FB papers and previous formula of Maco Superlith developer, I'm trying to find budget option for developer and paper. Fomabrom and Fomatone MG papers are reletively cheap in my country, as I know they are very good for lith process. After Tim Rudman's book readind I'm bold to have more experience in lith. I've started "new deal" with FOMATONE MG Clasic, FOMABROM N 111 Ansco 70 formula but with any lith results. 1+1+9, 1+1+19 at 20-28C were giving normal prints, with standard continous appearance of image after 60 seconds. 1+1+38 I found dead for printing even after 30 minutes of waiting and temperature 28C.

    Does anybody know about some working lith combo Foma FB paper and homebrew formulas from unblinking eye site??? I've found some information about D-85, D-9, Ansco 70, Ansco 81 but only in relation to discontinuated or different than Foma papers.
