Was thinking that if i replaced the old Mirror 2 mount, with this:
That I would have way more ability to adjust the beam, with X, Y, and Z abilities.
Well, YES, it does move in those 3 axis.
However, I had to modify the heck out of it to do this, as the slots don’t line up with existing brackets slots.
- Base is really THICK compared to thin metal Z bracket on old mount, which raises mirror considerably.
- X axis slots are too far to the left, so had to drill and tap new holes way to the right.
- All axis screws are M4, but adj. slots are too wide, allowing it to wobble left and right, tremendously making any axis slide difficult, w/o changing another axis angle. I wanted to just loosen the Y, and slide it closer to M1, but it wobbled and drastically changed X.
- When you think u almost have it perfect, you run out of slide ability. Had to remove and drill and file each slot longer by almost 1/4".
Went from 20mm to 25mm mirror, so that helped some.
I also like that I can now use the metal hole out in front of the mirror for tape, and not have to deal with paper directly on mirror.
This is really good material and quality, just needs longer and wider slots, if not multiple slots so you can choose which slots you need.
Finally have it in place, and the additional Z adjustment allows me to nail the M3 head hole.
