    Cool

    Looks cool, Steve-o!

    I can't tell for sure from the picture, but there is a plate beneath the top plate that connects to the mounting face for the dichro - is that plate slotted so it can move back and fourth? If so, then I'm guessing the two screws in the back of the mount allow for adjustment of the angle...

    Nice to see homebrew projects that still get the job done!

    Thanx Adam
    Yep thats a stainless steel plate with a slot. The vertical screw is to prevent movement on the back section, the mounting screw is further front towards the dichro. It's fun building your own optic stuff I think

    I have to agree with you there steve-o. Its part of the fun as far as im concerned making all the bits yourself. Its also very satisfying when you see the finished bits all working.

    My next project which I have already made quite a few parts for is a home brew Green DPSS all from components - diode vandate ktp oc etc. Watch this space pics will be posted - may be some time off yet as I've had the crystals for 3 years - but now have the tools to make decent components to make it all work.

    Hey andy if yours do the job who cares. You made it yourself which in my book is better than buying one in.

    Keep doin it yourself.
