    Echesak - somehow I couldn't see your post when writing mine ,I think I have not refreshed the page for some time. That seems to be exactly the same idea :)

    I've been a member for many years, following many builds. But since I have so few posts, mine are still under moderation/approval. So I believe that my reply was just delayed in this process. This milling technique worked well for the laser cavities. With my crude machining skills at that time, I had to do a significant amount of hand sanding & polishing. But better tooling and more patience has since provided me with better surface finishes :)

    Only your posts with embedded links will be sent to the moderation queue, so 'normal' replies won't be affected. Once you hit a certain post count the auto moderation will disappear.
