    Does anyone know of any place who makes the glass for the rangefinders.
    I'm taking about the glass that has 50% reflecting coating on it.
    My supply is running low!

    Thanks,

    Carol

    Have you tried Micro-Tools? They used to carry it, but I haven't seen a catalog in a while...

    Edmund Scientific carries it. I haven't looked in a while, but seems like they were expensive - but then again I haven't priced it anywhere else either.

    The have 2 branches (or 2 faces anyway). One is optics-only aimed at the industrial laser crowd mostly, and the other is general scientific gear, more educational. Both sites/catalogs would probably have it, but the optics side is probably going to carry the highest quality and price.

    PS - let us know where you find it, I plan to rework some Kalart rangefinders
