Don't get to discouraged yet. Find out who has made a mirror and get him to help you with any problems that you may have. Then there's all of us on the web, including the ATM list that Mel Bartels runs.
FWIW, I'm the second instructor playing with my Ronchi tester at the http://www.sdaa.org/ATeleMaker/sdaaatm.htm page. I got the video camera testing of mirrors there so that everybody could see what the image of the Foucault tester looks like to everybody. The setup is easy as you just use a camera in place of your eye and even a camcorder works just fine.
