Batches of multifaceted mirrors index and translate to present their surfaces, one by one, to an autocollimator 3 mounted on a base 4 which is aligned with a disk-support shaft 5 by a removable arm 6 carrying a sensor 7 for detecting light from the autocollimator 3. The shaft 5 carries a number of disks 1, separable by spacers 8, which are individually presented to the autocollimator 3 by axial translator 9 and indexer 10.
