Default Hi From Melbourne

Hi All,

My hobby is electronics and radio building and I have had a fascination for lasers. I have been doing a lot of reading on the safety issues and found this website very useful.

I have a lot to learn but I am not in a hurry. I just want to be safe.

Regards, John

Welcome to the forum John

Glad you are thinking about safety. Many new members do not.

Enjoy your time here!

Thanks Gazen,

Can you advise if these glasses would be OK for a 1 Watt 445 laser.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/OD5-190-...YAAOSwnDxUcPNy

I am not sure if it is a knock off as it is from China. They do show an authentication certificate - but it probably doesn't mean much.

Regards, John

If they’re what they claim to be, they’ll be fine. But why take the risk when you can get for certain genuine ones for only $5 more.

https://www.survivallaser.com/Eagle_..._11309234.aspx

These will work for your 445, 405, and green including any ir it might output. If you decide you get into more dpss lasers or any ir lasers they’ll serve you well.

Also, please fill out your profile (:

Happy lasing
