    Default Unidentified mirror

    I bought a few boxes of vintage laser stuff and almost Everything has a Model and brand except a few things. This is one of them. It has 12 mirrors on it that spins with a motor. Thanks in advance.

    Looks like hexagon scanner mirror for bar code reader.

    Ok thanks. Here is one of the other things that didnít have a brand. It looks similar to an autonetics alignment mirror which i found. But this is not a mirror and more of a window. Very heavy duty.

    It's quite likely that the rotating mirror is from an imagesetter, used to expose films or plates for litho printing; it looks to be quite substantial and accurately machined and I can't imagine that much money being spent on a bar code scanner.
    The other 'mirror' may be for a non-visible wavelength, hence why it's clear to visible light.

    Interesting. Thanks. Found a few more things that didnít have any brand names in them.
