    If you do it in a room or place your wife cares about, just be sure to put down a lot of plastic (not paper) to cover everything. Remember that there is silver on your gloves and anything you touch can cause a stain. Don't leave chemical bottles open unless you are using them. If you do drip some silver on something wet a paper towel down with fixer and carefully wipe it up, then follow up with a damp paper towel. The silver solution is clear so you don't notice it at first. After the light has hit it a few times it turns dark brown. When I mix chemicals I do it using the plastic lid of a large storage box, upside down. This catches any spills and splatters. I also put the cat outside so she doesn't knock any bottles over. You know how cats are. As for workshops, they are useful but I didn't go to one. I just watched videos and got a few tips from forums. The manuals from John Coffer or Mark Osterman are very good and complete. I also think this guy has done a very basic and complete job with his series:

    Hello Louis
    PICTORIOGRAPHICA have very low ISO in my opinion.
    I plan to start with Russian Slavich glass plate. 127x102x1.8mm
    Chamonix only 127mm x 100.5mm.
    Chroma yes, 127x102mm. https://chroma.camera/product/4x5-wet-plate-holder/ Is it second version of ChromaGraphica Double Dry Plate Holder? Is it comfortable? Have it problems with the plastic of the printer?

    I have not found holder manufacturers anymore.

    I think that some vintage lenses were made with a right-angle mirror or prism in front of the lens.

    A few years ago I modified a 70s vintage Spiratone "Circo-mirro-tach" to thread onto a 210mm f/5.6. This was to do some overhead table top imaging. Perhaps something like that would work for your reversed image question. These sometimes come up on The-Bay.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
