I spent the weekend working on the code to control the servo mechanism, when it gets closer to completion I will post it.  I have been contemplating on using a thin sheet metal for the mirror mount hardware instead of the Lexan I had originally considered.  The reasoning for this is ease of cutting without cracking.  I have also picked up a heat-sink that will be suitable for the laser mirror mount.  This needs to be drilled at an angle and a set screw made so that the laser can be mounted in properly.
