Paper Abstract

Conventional spot tools are precise, monolithic hard tools made to manufacture specific optics. A modular spot tool is described which consists of a base sphere and individual lathe-turned pucks functioning as lens seats. It can be reconfigured for a variety of radii, thicknesses and wedges, and it may be fabricated and qualified as fit for use with equipment available to the small optics shop.
