Default WTB HeNe

In the next few weeks I will be in the market for a HeNe (my first gas laser ) my price range won't be that high maybe around the $300 mark so hopefully I can get something for that, but I can probably pull some more money if need be. I have wanted a gas laser for some time but could never really get my head around the electronics of powering the bloody things up. I have no real preference on anything I just want a big gas laser

I am after a "plug & play" laser, so everything needed to get it to laze

Hopefully theres someone in Australia that has one they want to offload, if so please PM me or post here.

Thanks
Billy

Default Re: WTB HeNe

300$ is a large budget for a HeNe.

Check out Dave's sale here.
http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/ne...ale-80264.html

You can get a Red HeNe and a Green HeNe for your budget, great way to start off a HeNe collection
The red one is plug n' play I believe. You'll need a 12VDC power supply for the green.

Edit: Whoops I missed your location. The Red HeNe is 110VAC, it wont work in Aus. The green HeNe is still a good buy.

Default Re: WTB HeNe

What do you mean by "big gas laser"?

As ArgLaser said, "regular" HeNe's are much less than $300
"Large" Hene's will get you up there, but shipping a 4 foot long package to Australia will get pretty expensive

For $300 you could get a small framed, air cooled, argon laser
However, once again, you wold probably be looking at >$100 in shipping cost

We could probably find a brick type PSU for the red that will work on 240V on eBay

Peace,
dave

Thanks again

By "big gas laser" I just mean something that isn't a diode laser, my thoughts ATM are the bigger the better, but I might go with a "regular" sized HeNe, as I might not be that into gas lasers and I might stuff it up. so I don't know going to have to wait and see.

I was hoping to avoid those kinds of postage costs and try to buy local but if I have to, I am going to have to suck it up and pay it.

I'm a bit nervous about the PSU's they are just so confusing to me, thats why I was wanting something "plug & play"

Thanks for the quick responses
Billy

Default Re: WTB HeNe

I don't see any PSU's (that are affordable) on eBay at the moment

Shipping on "regular" HeNe's will be <$50

Peace,
dave

Thanks for looking for me, I wouldn't have known where to start

Thats pretty decent shipping, but I suspect your green HeNe will be gone by next week (when I have enough money for it) but I suppose I could shuffle a few things around to purchase it now,

Thanks
Billy
