    I know TF-4 is the recommended fixer for PMK and TMX-100. How about Kodak
    Rapid Fix without Part B (the hardener). Can this also work or will problems
    result? Thx.

    TF-4 recommended? I recall plain unadulterated sodium
    thiosulfate being recommended when using a staining
    developer. I don't use staining developers but from
    the reading I've done of them a sulfite free non-
    acidic fix is recommended.
    Sodium thiosulfate makes an odorless, near neutral,
    and as far as I know, truly universal fixer which can be used
    on any material. For long tray life some sulfite should be
    added. It lasts for ever dry in the jar. Spoon up a fresh
    fix of just it for film processing; 2/3 ounce - 20 grams
    should be plenty. Ten to twelve minutes. Dan
