Mirror mirror (To kill a laserbird, 2 of X)

Which’s the prettiest of them all?

 

With every machine overhawl, comes with an extra dosage of mirror alignment. It’s boring and it’s slow…but it must be done.
I don’t really know what other people do to check beam position, I use thermal printer paper (and some tape).

Make a strip and put some adhesive on one side, cut small squares.

USE MINIMUM POWER!

Yeah, not the best mounts in the world…prone to misalign through vibration.

As said, use them (squares) as needed:

If I haven’t been clear:

USE…MINIMUM…POWER!

Or else, this will happen:

And you will have to dissasemble the mirror and clean it thoroughly…again and again…
