This is my father’s garage where he is currently working on his telescope hobby.
The glass casting oven is a oven made from scratch where it is able to make up to a 20′ mirror blank.
Diamond Curve Generating Machine/Mirror grinding & polishing- Own personal design/invention, uses a roller coaster, where the diamond grinder rides the curve track. Able to do any curve of radius(negative or positive) because of the spring steel track design. Able to grind/polish up to a 32′ mirror.
40′ Vacuum Tank. The mirror sits vertical, attaching itself to the door with an aluminum ring. Vaporization process is horizontal.
