Default Hello all.

Hi everyone. I've just joined up to the forum as I've been building and modify lasers for years and would like to share and learn with like-minded people.
I first built my own as a DIY kit from Maplins probably 30 years ago !! It was a 5mW Helium Neon tube, which I loved.
I now buy old worn out laser units and replace the diodes for similar new ones. Generally works, but have got one I'm a bit stuck on so may need help from you guys.
I hope to speak to some of you in the future.
Cheers.
Dikko

Welcome to the forums Dikko , nice to see another member from the UK. I never knew that Maplin offered a HeNe kit in the past. Then again, I wasn't exactly around. I'd love to see a picture of it, if you still have it.
