I think this has come up before but I'll replay it. Surplus Shed Optics--- surplusshed.com

I have ordered 3 times from them in the last month. Their site is a little hard to navigate, but if you have the patience and time it is well worth looking at.

I have spent, maybe, $300.00 dollars there. For that sum I have received at least 2K worth of top quality optics.
All orders ship for $5.00, no matter the weight. I've seen Air Force aerial cameras and test equipment weighing 200 or 300 pounds each, still $5.00 shipping. UNBELIEVABLE

Shipping has never taken over 5 days to my door. One time I had my optics in 3 days.

Give their site a good going over. Might take 2 or 3 hours.
I was just needing (I thought) a few adjustable mirrors to bounce the beams around. Looked on FleaBay, cheapest at the time was $49.95 each. I found what I needed at S/S for .85 cents each. Out of 24 I ordered, 2 or 3 had minor scratches (site stated, may have defects, no DUH!, at that price!)

I am now placing my 4th order with them (16-20V@1W solar panels--$9.00 each) Already bought 1 and tested it out. Just got it last night at 7:00PM, and it's been raining all day today:yabbem:, but

Putting out 6.35V@850mA using a 200W light bulb .:drool:
No, I have no affiliations with them at all, just blown away by their prices and service. Check them out, you won't be sorry!!!
I now have more mirrors, prisms, beamsplitters and lenses then I can count or use (for now)LOL

I've bought from them a couple of times. Always got good stuff from them. A good company to deal with and lots of interesting items.

Can you throw a link to the mirrors you bought? Are the FS?
Tech_
Yes they are FS: 34mmX24MM Item# L10278/ $ .85 each (nice and thick too, droped one onto wood floor. It didn't even chip it.)

Diag. holder 4.5" Item# M2615/ $1.00 each

Pics below. All you will need is a base. I am going to melt down some lead into wafers about the size of a Oreo cookie and drill a hole in the middle to stick the rod.

Fred from the S Shed is the man!! Look into the VIP membership if you think that you might get a lot of items from them-worth it. I had a little trouble getting an item to run and Fred emailed a cutomer who also got one then fwded the needed info to me--now thats great after-the-sale service!!! A+ company with a ton of items listed and they will send you regular emails on new items, specials and sales updates if you want them.--Hak
