I think a lot of it is doing it yourself, the complete process. After all those of us that make our own mirrors and mounts, have little respect for those that buy their parts ready to assemble and then have the nerve to call themselves ATMs.

Why don't you write a do it yourself book. If you really can do an accurate (coating error less than 1/10PVW) 98% coating, I would even see about helping you publish if you needed.

Cheers,
-Rick
