PLEASE NOTE REGARDING PAYPAL PAYMENTS: if you pay via PayPal and the PayPal

I see that this site sell prisms like this one. PRECISION 12.7MM RIGHT ANGLE PRISM UNCOATED - Surplus Shed
Now what happens when u shine a 1watt 445nm into one? Does it split the beam in a cool way?

And also what do the beamsplitters do? I know this is probably a dumb question but I just want to make sure I know before I make purchase

With a BSC you can both split one laser into two or combine two -they need to be the same nm or close.

those labled as broadband will combine or split almost all wavelengths IIRC.

Fred at SS is a great person to deal with- while there are sales gong on look into becoming a VIP buyer- save additinal 10 % off and you get two shippings a month for a year for free.. so during the above sale IIRC you would get shipped free and at a 50% discount on stuff that is already priced to sell.
--
you can trust SS 100%

bookmark SS- sign up for the newsletter- they do not come out all that often and always show the latest new items and the sales.

be sure to let Fred know you that from this forum and that Hakzaw(Len) and BBadger sent you. If you find a great use for a SS item they will add you 'find' to the listing and give you credit for the idea..I envy those who live close enough to shop in person.

sending this link to Fred now!!!

Default Re: 40% off everything Surplus Shed Sale

Hak's right about signing up for the newsletter. I always wait until their sales; they're usually about 20-30% off depending on the sale. This one in particular is a HIGH percentage off.

I don't buy enough from them to get the membership; however, if I buy something more expensive (> $350/yr) as a percentage it'll probably pay for itself. Also the the free shipping 2x per month (i.e. $5 saved each order) is really handy for those really small items--and a reason I get Amazon Prime.

Also remember that member or not, shipping is a mere $5 for the entire order no matter what the size (and that can be HUGE).

As for the beamsplitters: beware that some of the beamsplitters are not polarized beamsplitters, so you can't combine beams with them. They do a good job splitting them though.

Some stuff I've found very useful:

- Bulk aluminum plates - They're really cheap ($0.20 in quantity > 10) and great as shims or just to try and mount things to. I bought 100x of those one time.

- Super-short focal length cylindrical lens - Combine this with a 30mm cylindrical lens and you can collimate the fast axis of the 638nm laser to a beam about 3-4mm in size--without using an aixiz lens. There are losses, but it's great for experimenting.

- Sharp laser copier assembly - Last time I bit the bullet and bought like 6x of these things in case they did sell out. These have great motors with hex mirrors on them--perfect for liquid sky effects that you could even time for patterns.

Also remember they sell oddball things and electronic parts, like surface mount caps, resistors, screwdrivers, robots, posters, etc. Just search around. There is TONS of stuff.

Default Re: 40% off everything Surplus Shed Sale

Last day of the sale! Found a sweet deal on Bourns 5k multiturn trim pots. 10 for $10! Combined with the 40% off sale, that's $0.60 per trim pot! These normally go for $3.50 each on Mouser.com. You can't even touch the non-discounted price at 10000x quantities.

I'm picking up 50x of these bitches. I can use them in everything. Hopefully I haven't bought too many of them ha!

Saved myself $52.00 on this order! DAAAAMN.
