cell is finished yipeee. just need to make 3 spacers in work tomorrow and it can then be striped and all the parts can be sent away for anodizing. to say im happy about the cell is a understatement the motion of the colimation is very smooth and i cant believe how much articulation there is in all planes. as some might know the support triangles and wiffle tree edge supports only hold the mirror flat with equal support to eliminate totally and astigmatism, the cell is totally independant of the frame and it is the cell that moves to colimate . heres some pics of it finished

Does it need to be ready for that?

Isn't "dobfest the summer bash" just a drinking game? :rolleyes2:

Surely the price should be struck when you place the order? (as it seems to have been in this instance)

I don't think that is luck, I think it is how business should be done :wink:

small update/rant/moan.

e mailed 00 today ,to ask if i could pick up my secondary tomorrow, they replied just before they shut saying the fella who works on them had to go due to a family emergency .

just checked my bank account to see what date i placed my order for my mirror set and its been 9 weeks 4 days or 1584 hours they said 8 - 10 weeks and its still not ready. im not desperate for it but it would be nice to be updated. very poor customer service :sad:
