When the mirror is removed and pointed at a wall in daylight,(don't touch the surface with your fingers) you can move either closer or further from the wall and find it's focus by making the reflected light as small a circle as possible. When its at it's focus distance (focal length) you can see the concentrated light produced by the mirror. Stablise the mirror at that distance and an exact measurement can be taken.
