Here's a glider-to-spider converter with a bounding box of 10083 x 9478 and repeat time 2619 (the repeat time of the current 261 glider synthesis).

Here's a reasonably small alternate G-to-LWSS converter (90x94) with repeat time 93 which kind of works as a compromize between the G-to-LWSS depicted in LifeWiki and the slower but smaller one .

77x89 glider-to-MWSS converter based off Jormungant's idea from here . Repeat time is same as the syringe (78 safe repeat time but can be overclocked to 74 or 75 ticks).

Here's a working predecessor for the bottom that should be "relatively" easy to implement.

Re: Synthesising Oscillators

When the oscillator was first found, I attempted a synthesis. Synthesizing the still-lifes on one side is quite easy, using standard boiler plate techniques; however, due to the directions where incoming gliders come from, making a second set of them close together would require much more complicat...
