One of the best articles on B/W Reversal Processing is:
'Processing Methods for Use With Two New Black-and-White Reversal Films' by C E Ives, J W Zuidema, N A Exeley and CC Wilt of Eastman Kodak. This was published in Jan 1957 in the Journal of the SMPTE Volume 66 Number 1.

It gives lots of advice and processing times and formulae. It also covers processing in a hand tank.

I have a copy of this which I will scan and put on a file sharing website. If anyone wants to download it just drop me an email to mail@brianpritchard.com. Please put 'BW Reversal' as the subject so I can spot it amongst the vast quantity of spam I receive.

Pay close attention to temperature control. I used to do some 8mm B&W reversal processing and had a lot of trouble with reticulation until I got real serious about temp control.
