We are still waiting on the bottom flanges being machined.  I went to the physics machine shop this morning and they have only just got them on to a machine, which is a bit annoying since they've been there for quite a while now.  They should be ready in one week.  

I'm going to speak to Bob about getting them cleaned and baked.  I know that we're not aiming for some super-high-vacuum system but we probably also don't want machining fluid ending up on the optics when we pump this thing down.
