DIY Film Coating Machine

An ex-Kodak chemist having managed to hand develop Kodachrome, decides to go one step further and make his own kodachrome film. Hand-application is not consistant enough so he sets about building a machine to take the variability out of the final product.
Initial problems (uneven coating caused by gearbox and bearing chatter) have been solved, and the machine now works to the builder's exacting requirements, and now the builder is spending his time manufacturing reaction chambers and other emulsion manufacturing hardware.
