Re: Anti Newton Ring Glass Supplier


Please let us know how this turns out as I just sent a purchase order through our university channels to buy some anti-newton glass from Focal Point.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.  This is to go into a 5108 Devere and the tolerances are pretty slim plus the long edges have to be tapered "just so" to fit into the clip-like contraption they use.  It would be nice if the Focal Point folks responded since they offer the glass cut to those specs.
Just noticed an email addy at the bottom of their site so maybe that will generate some life signs.

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.
