In Russ' video #181 he uses an acrylic jig to hold a target up in front of mirror 3. This video shows him making and installing his lightweight head. The jig is inserted into the top of a "C" series tube and holds the target with three tabs. The jig is seen at about 30 minutes in. Does anyone have or know where I can find the .DXF files? I know I could ask Russ, but I've bugged him so much over the last week or so (I just got all the parts for my own lightweight head upgrade) that I want to avoid it if I can. Hopefully one of you has the file laying around.

Pete, thank you for the reply. That was the first thing I tried, in the hope that it would be there. I found one that looked similar to it, but it sat on the bed, and you ran the nozzle down into it. Not quite what I was looking for.

Thanks Pete, I did build one of those, and Russ was kind enough to send a short version of the target holder (as well as some targets) when I bought his lightweight head a week and a half ago. The problem I'm having is trying to get the M3 targets to stay on the M3 mirror holder. The screws just don't stick out far enough to capture the cardstock. When I emailed Russ, he said he's not as fond of the target holder in LL video #181 as he once was and said I should use the square ones. I guess I'll just have to tweak them a bit. I really liked the jig in that video though.
