Paper Abstract

There is a technique for successfully getting optics through the shop. It involves paying attention to details and knowing at least as much about the fabrication process as the people doing the work. By being smarter than the others involved in the fabrication process, we do not mean that you necessarily must be familiar with the craft side of the work, but that you should be aware of each of the necessary steps in fabrication so that you can ask intelligent questions about what is going on at any given time. Further, you should be aware of a greater part of the process than the people in the shop and thus be smarter by having a better overall view of the procedures beginning with calculations and ending with hardware.
