  I have also used the "slide plate" method and would make the
following additions:
   Tape the side spacers to the bottom plate with very small pieces
of double-sided stick scotch tape (drug store or craft store).
   Put the bottom plate on four petri plates.  Put an old plate next
to it , four petri plates, and then the top plate.  This places the
top plate at exactly the right height for sliding.
