Just type in Mechanical Mathematician in a search engine to find out more.
http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=gaiatechnician contains some video of me
kaning a 4 ft by 4 ft parabolic reflector with the mathematician.
I used (cob sand clay and straw mix) to make the parabolic dish.
You could probably easily use the mathematician for your parabolic trough
curves too. (Saves doing the math).
