I read all the posts here regarding the use of first surface mirrors. Some say that the coating will oxidize and need to be replaced in 6 months. But they last for a long time in RPTVs. If the mirror is housed in a air tight elbow would that assist with the oxidation problem?

Call Stewart Filmscreen or Hudson Photographic and get their input. They will give you far more than conjecture

First surfce mirors are a dime a dozen, if you know where to get them. Call up all the repair depots in your area. older CRT based RPTV units used them all the time. So, when they strip the old, dead units.. where do the mirrors go? Intercept one, on it's way to the garbage bit. Heck, grab a few. Heck, you won't need more than one for these little things. And, the biger the mirror.. the longer the fold, and the tighter the space you can project in. Heck, make your own DLP based in-wall RPTV system!


Strip an old 60" RPTV today!
