Brushed Stainless Jay Capela Contact Jay Via Email

This is a prototype for my first kaleidoscope that I will begin production on in January 2021. The scope is machined from 1.75″ diameter stainless steel tube. The two mirror system produces a 6 point image. The object chamber is connected to a flywheel and ball bearings and turns by rotating the 1/4″ shaft.
