Is there someplace online where I can learn how to process black and white super 8 reversal film
(Tri-X/Plus-X). Also, is there an easy way to get a hold of all of the chemicals one would need, or do you have to go out of your way to find them. I hear they come in a kit, but I can't find where to purchase them. Please help.

Here are the technical data for the films:

And the processing details:

Kodak sells chemical kits, primarily intended for labs running continuous processing machines, so the quantities may be too much for what you are looking for:

If you want to use a One roll at a time method, check out http://www.geocities.com/gselinsky/ for some good information. If you want to do it commercialy or other wise have a real movie film processor then use the data that John has pointed out.
