Default wtb:my first laser

For some reason in the last 48hrs i have become extremly fascinated with lasers.It started with looking at some laser pens on ebay,to me reading almost everything on this site.I thought about building one but,i realized that i dont know squat yet.I would like to start out with buying a used,rebuilt,or new.price range is $100 give or take.

you cannot buy a very powerful laser with $100 bucks. the googles only could cost 70% the total value
you can try PriceAngels: Cool Gadgets at the Right Price - WorldWide Free Shipping

Good luck not blinding yourself.

A lot of people come here looking for their first laser. This is the one most go for

HERE

yobresal is a great builder, ships quickly and is located in the US. I have owned a few myself and they are great. Please get a pair of laser goggles before you use it though.

Default Re: wtb:my first laser

www.rayfoss.com

buy this one. total cost with shipping is $75.00

this was my first laser that wasnt a 1mW red from walmart, and i was stunned fascinated and amazed with it. it is perfect for what you want and a great starting laser. it has everything and anything you could ever want for a first laser and you will love it.

i have one right now that is 2 months old and I would part with it for $50.00 plus your preffered shipping method that you would pay for.
i live in kentucky and depending on what shipping you wanted it could get to you in 3-7 days.


if you want more pics/info let me know. it is awesome, you can see the beam clearly indoors in the day and at night or in the dark it is AMAZING. you would love this laser and like i said if you want to check out a little bit more i will give you all the pics,videos, and info you could ever want or need.

it is an amazing laser at a great price and you would be EXTREMELY happy with it.

mine is in 110% perfect conditon.
pm me if you would like more info.

EDIT: DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT buy a 1W 445 for your first laser. that is like buying a .50 cal sniper rifle as your first gun ever. it just doesnt make since. you need a .22 before a .50

Seriously start with a 100mw green, it will be incredibly bright, and will feed your addiction.

Also, dont spend a lot of cash on your first. Chances are fairly good you will break it completely by accident.

best first laser is a cheap "5mW" ebay green. They are always overspec and cost $6 shipped. LOTS of fun and great for getting your feet wet.

they will be brighter than likely anything you have seen
