A simple mirror holder which permits the use of locally damaged laser morrors by allowing the undamaged areas of the reflector to be aligned along the laser optic axis is described. The mirror holder has an eccentric step for housing the mirror and a concentric aperture through which the undamaged surface of the reflector is utilised. By varying the eccentricity and by rotating the mirror inside the step the entire surface area of the reflector can be used successively.
