Hi Sandy

For making my own Potassium oxalate I first add 130 gm of acid oxalic to 500
ml of water then I add 110gm of potassium carbonate I well mix . at this
point there is still some powder in the solution. I then I add about 15gm
more of potassium cabonate and the solution get clear. I check with a pH
paper and add water to make 1 liter.

You don't have to worry about the dilution. A more dilute developer work as
well as a concentrate one, you just have to change the developing time. For
example I develop 2 minutes @ 70F with the concentrated developer and 5
min. @ 70F with a half strentgh developer.

best regards
