Would have to agree that it really is pretty easy..did some several years ago, about 15 or so and the slides still look good. I think others here have talked about using a foam cooler (like the cheap ones for beer) fill it with water a given temp (could use one of the aquarium heaters) and your off. Think I used an old Kodak Hobby Pack, but they stopped making them..not sure what is out there now, but try a kit of some kind if you can find it..others here will be in the KNOW better than I am. Get a roll of film that you don't care about and practice rolling it on the reel and you will be ready to go. Good Luck!
Ooops. Didn't mean to overlook your post. Some good ideas and good advice. Thank you.
