Title: Stable mirror mount

Abstract

This patent describes a mirror mount for supporting a mirror where the mirror is oriented in an x-ray plane. The mirror mount comprising post assembly means for supporting the mirror, first keyway means for orienting the post assembly means such that the post assembly means are slidable only in a first direction parallel to a y-axis orientation, and including first screw holes, nut plate means for supporting the first keyway means and including second screw holes, second keyway means for supporting the nut plate means such that the nut plate means are slidable only in a second direction normal to the first direction and parallel to an x-axis orientation such that the post assembly means and the nut plate means are each slidable in a plane parallel to the x-y plane, and locking means normal to the x-y plane including a single screw type locking member movable in a third direction orthogonal to the first and second directions between a first position through the first and second screw holes for simultaneously locking in a single step in clamping engagement the first and second keyway means.
