    Hi, in my ongoing efforts to satisfy SWMBO, I'm mounting the projector vertically, with a mirror at 45 degrees to get a picture on the wall instead of the ceiling. :).

    I'm having difficulty sourcing a front-silvered mirror. There's a guy who makes some sort of stereocopic picture frame which has mirrors in it that seem to be aobut the size I want, but I can't get in touch with him at the moment.

    Anyone know where I can lay my hands on an optically decent front silvered mirror about 10cm x 10cm ?

    Help appreciated. And if I get one, I'll let you all know if it works :)

    You need a first surface mirror.

    Thanks cyberheater!

    Edit: Funny thing this, I was being sarcastic here - you know, front surface and front silvered being the same thing and all, but when I googled for front surface mirror - I got this lot

    and the cheque is in the post.

    Apologies, cyberheater, and genuine thanks!
