I wonder if someone had similar situation and can give me advise.
I was cleaning rangefinder on Fed-1 and by lack of experience I accidentally took most of the reflecting paint out off semitransparent mirror. Does someone know way how to fix it?

Really it is only needed a diamond cutter and firm hand. Although I consider myself careful and meticoulous in precision machinery,
I could NEVER!!! in my trials obtain a right cut. So I give this task to expert people.

Thank you Luiz! I'll try this. Although I do not know how to cut glass accurately and precisely. It some special cutters needed?

Go to Edmund Scientific they sell semireflective mirrors in 25,50 and 75% grades. Those are sold un 4x4 cm plates and appox 0.75mm thickness. You must cut the glass in the appropriate size.
You will do a better RF with a 75 percent reflective mirror. The second image will be brilliant and easy to be seen.
Request the catalogue and see ever growing prices.
A second suggestion is to use thin reflective plastic film used for overing car windshields. Works but is not so great!
Good luck and regards.
