Re: Anti Newton Ring Glass Supplier

I've found the glass sold in frame shops as "anti-glare picture frame glass" has worked just fine in the few applications where I've needed anti-newton glass. I recently purchased two sheets 8x10 for less than $10.00 for the pair. I gut them at a common frame shop just down the street from my work. They are rather thin, which works perfectly to hold negatives in my scanner, but may be too thin for some other applications.

Thanks Don.  I'll keep trying to contact him before making an order as
a somewhat running website isn't an indication of a sign of life. =)
Look for anti-glare glass. This is similar to anti-newton glass in that its etched on one side. I don't know exactly what is available but it worth checking out local glass and framing shops to see there if you can find something suitable. I suspect that glass with an anti-reflective coating similar to camera lenses would also work but have never tried this. Such glass is also sold for picture framing because it reduces the reflection from the glass surface. I don't think either kind is particularly expensive.
