[aaron, shruti]

We found a heavily pitted cantilever from Zach's early fab runs, and mounted it in his clamp using the alignment jig and pins. We tried optically contacting one of the mirrors to the cantilever, but some combination of surface oxidation and roughness (or just inexperience) prevented us from making a bond. The surface of the cantilever had obvious defects, so we weren't very hopeful. We're seeing what Koji suggests for glue.
