Note that the upper and lower lens are not the same and we dont know the focal values.
both should be "dome up, away from the honeycomb" when installed.
The nominal focal distance between the surface of the substrate and the bottom face of the head is 3mm.
The file to cut one from 3mm material is attached to this article (below) if you want to make your own.
Many just use a US Quarter as a focus gauge and have fabulous results.
