    i do as well. I have designed a prototype. I run solidworks too. Mine has much finer adjstments and will eventually be modular, ie can do glass plate. Downside is it is heavier since I made mine from aluminum. I use 3/16x100tpi threaded adjusters for focus setting. But would not be cheap. Not nearly as cost effective as the ones Doug makes.

    The key is to avoid warping. Aluminum if not machined properly will warp. l had mine ground/lapped after machining and it still has a slight, ever so slight high corner, about a couple of tenths (.0002 or so)

    Update - I got an email from Doug, ordered some accessories and a tray and got great responses, regular emails and updates and my order shipped today. Good to see him back and shipping!

    Unfortunately, I've placed a few orders this year and have emailed Doug, but still haven't heard a word yet. I hope I'll get the chance to place finally place an order.
