I use a Newport optical bread board and it works really well, will post some pics soon.pvd said:I use a journeyman. It's ok. If I had it to do again, I'd base it off a optical breadboard. A little more machining, but far more flexible.

An optical table is a great idea. You can use it for so many other applications as well. What size would be adequate, 24'x36'? Some of the smaller ones are less than 2" thick. Would that thickness flex when loaded up with heavy bike frame fixturing? These tables are only meant for photonics, where the fixtures and components are very light weight.Syltmunk said:I use a Newport optical bread board and it works really well, will post some pics soon.
