Vac Formed Lens Holder

Now that I have a Vac Form Table, along with my Acoustic Tile, I will be able to make parts that will improve the performance of the Aussiemorphic Lens like optics holders. 

This is what the front lens holder should look like.  It will improve the product by not only holding the glass more securely, but also assist in keeping the inside dust free.  I will also be making a similar version for the rear lens.  The rear lens is Plano-Convex and due to its shape, this lens is really only held in position at two points [very top and very bottom].  The new holders will make surface contact at 360 degrees making sure the lens can not move.
