Its been a long time but I finally got some more work done. Check out my lens shroud. It is laser cut acrylic and the inside has a matte finish. i was going for the period look and I am pleased with the results. I need to mount it next.

Yes it looks really good bet that took a while to cut out with the laser .

Hi Harry

The laser cutting only took 17 minutes. Assembly 10 minutes. But it did take my intern 3 days to do the cad work in fusion 360 and we did cut it two times. I guess it would have taken me about 6 hours if I designed it. Now its done reproductions are quick and easy.

Cheers
Keith

Keith that's a good one for the construction diary for those who may not have the skill like you to make this stuff .
Looks very professional.
