    These lasers were about to get tossed as we packed up and moved a lab at work. I bought them a few years ago and thought I'd rescue them. I found 4 of them in all, but will be keeping two to play with myself. I thought I'd give you guys a look at them before putting them up on Ebay.

    To be clear, I have two of the following lasers for sale. The only difference between them is the serial number, so I'm only showing one. Here tiz...

    Specifications:
    Power = 1 mW (Class II)
    Wavelength = 633 nm
    Focus adjustable from as close as 2".
    Focal spot as small as 50 microns at 2". Across the room the spot size is a millimeter or so.
    Operating Voltage = 4-6 Volts DC

    Includes:
    The laser head
    AC power supply
    Focus adjustment tool
    Data Sheet

    I do optics for a living, folks. These are nice lasers! Just plug them in and turn them on. They come with a safety shutter and a focus adjustable lens inside the laser housing. I'll leave it to you to come up with ideas on how to use them. I see the two I'm keeping showing up in a science fair project someday.  They are very bright, but low enough in power that I don't mind letting my kids play with them - under my supervision. Of course, don't look into the beam. Also, since the lasers run off of only 4-6 V DC you could easily fashion a battery powered supply using a 9V battery and voltage divider if you want. I can show you how to do that if you want.

    $30, shipped. (I paid a couple of hundred bucks for them when new.)

    First two to post dibbs and PM me gets them. I'll take PayPal, but prefer a money order or cashiers check to avoid the fees.

    Thanks!

    RJ - Thanks!

    Badman - No, these won't melt anything. But they aren't novelty lasers either. They aren't toys, but should provide hours of fun for the creative minded KTOGer and/or their kids or grandkids.

    I used to think I wanted to be a computer engineer. That's what I went to college to study anyhow, more or less. That and girls, beer and other distractions. Did great with the beer, not so much with the girls, and learned to absolutely loath computers. I discovered that they were the single greatest source of frustration and anger in my life. Turned my back on them and ran as far away as I could. One semester I dropped all my classes and went from pure digital to pure analog. In doing so discovered light, optics and, well, lasers.

    Which, 25 years later, brings us here.

    PM returned. Both lasers sold. RJ, I hope this little red dot brings you much joy! ;D
