"Lantern Slides" can sometimes be found for next to nil at garage sales etc., - the glass is easily stripped clean. Lucky for me, the set I've got fit my 1920's Kodak folder. After much practice, I can pour an even layer on a slide without covering myself and the floor
It is not difficult to make a slow, color-blind emulsion, however a more 'modern' emulsion ( repeatable, good keeping properties, latitude, pan sensitive, etc.,) is not a trivial matter.
Warning: emulsion-making is very addictive! It has eliminated my social life, which is actually good, as I can now spend all my money on silver, chemicals, lab gear and paper instead.
