    Thanks for reading this review

    Modwerx optic/mirror mount & mirror review. New items just added this month.

    Modwerx Shop

    The store site is very professional and easy to use/navigate. Questions sent get quick replies.

    As you go to the Home page the first thing you will see is a paragraph about laser safety and a link to read more about this extremely important info. This is something that every seller of related items should always do.


    Miniature laser optic/mirror mount.
    (description from Modwerx store) "This is a small space saving optics mount that will mount with 1x M4 screw through the bottom. The center of the mounting plate is 3/4" and will match perfectly with our lab style heatsinks. Precision adjustments are made by turning the 2x 6-40 screws to get the desired beam position."---$22.99

    Note from reviewer---Heatsink in photo at the store site is not included, it is being shown only for reference.
    The heatsink can be purchased at Modwerx.- The centers of both heatsink and mirror match up.
    MODWERX Mount-----
    total height: 1 1/8"
    height to center of mount area: 3/4"
    width: 3/4"
    depth(including thumb screws): 7/8"
    Model: M0046 --Shipping Weight: 0.0625lbs --45 Units in Stock

    This product was added to thier catalog on Saturday 09 April, 2011.

    15mm diameter first/front surface mirror
    (copied from site)
    "Specially coated mirrors attain maximum reflection of the most popular visible laser diode wavelengths. Optimized at 45, these mirrors achieve..greater than 95% reflectance from 600 to 675nm versus only 85-90% for standard first surface mirrors. This reduced loss becomes particularly significant in multiple reflection systems.
    $18.99"

    So if loss is important(as when your laser must be reflected several times) then this type of front surface mirror needs to be used.

    Overall I found this mount and mirror to be very well made and is easy to adjust. And the screws and threads are very smooth and the knurled knobs are very nice- easy to make fine adjustments- a must for all applications where precision is needed. It is the perfect size to do its job while having a very small footprint.


    total for both items $41.98 shipping costs are:

    Loss test using red lab laser(655nm IIRC)- direct readings(Kenometer) of 81, and 82mWs and reflected off Modwerx FS Mirror 77, 78 and 79 mWs. see photos of actual testing -- So not much loss. Reflection angle was approx 20 degrees.
    Second test was done at approx 45 degrees and had similar results 85 vs 82 mWs.

    If I had to give a grade I would say 95 out of 100. You can pay much more and get a black anodized finish and maybe bigger knobs but for its price the performace is much better that the cheaper and home-mounts that I have used.
    My review was not influenced by Modwerx providing this sample. I have given bad reviews to a few that sent me poorly made items.
