what is the usual way?

We use an IBI sequencing apparatus with wedge spacers, siliconize both
plates, tape the edges (twice on the bottom edge) and then pour the gel
using a 25 ml pipette.  No expensive apparatus.  Adjust the rate of flow
by the angle that you hold the plates, more veritical faster, more
horizontal, slower.
