Dirk's eye is made very much like Bill's. One difference is that I cut the eye disks using a router rather than a hole saw. The hole saw tends to melt the edges of the acrylic, whereas a router produces a nice clean cut (it's in contact with the plastic for much less time). I also cut 2", 3.5" and 4" disks, rather than the specified 2", 3" and 4" disks. This produces a circular profile when seen from the side rather than a diamond shaped one.
With Bill I had it go through the centre, and then I had to arrange for two mounting bolts each going 1/4" into the pivot, which was much more complicated.
This new arrangement is much simpler, and you can't see the difference from the outside.
