Things moved quickly the last days. My original plan for the fabrication of the spring washer was to make a simple pressing tool and modify standard washers. We made this tool, consisting of a seat and a plunger, but the washers available turned out to have wrong sizes. So I went for the turned and milled brass execution on the photos. The simple jig to fold the tips of the strap was finished today as well.
Spring holding mechanism finished, fixing straps finished (except galvanising), stem and mirror head finished, foot machining finished ("only" requiring polishing and removing of dents, scratches etc and chroming).
A long project is heading towards the end and the result is a mirror, only. Well, that is not true. I gained a huge amount of experience and benefit from a gorgeous knowhow boost.
