Flip Mirror/Slide mirror

Not sure if this is the right forum, but has anyone ever made their own flip mirror or slide mirror diagonal for astrophotography work? Could not find anything on the internet on how to make it yourself, so thought I would try here. I would like to make a 2" version from an old diagonal I don't use anymore. The concept of the slide mirror seems easy enough and I really don't want to spend over $200 on meade's version. Any help would be much appreciated.
