I got a true 5mw and a 5mw red in once.

But the fine's arn't worth it I say.

But they WON'T take lab lasers and they WON'T take laser parts. (unless it's marked DANGEROUS HIGH POWER LASER PARTS)

So rly just buy lab lasers and make ur own lasers and ur right.

What type of laser did you want laserpyro?

I don't exactly know how Aussie customs works, if they X-ray every package, or only from certain companies (DX, CNI). But the alternative (if you don't mind waiting) is to have your laser(s) shipped to some person you can trust that can get them into their country, then have that person send it to you. It would probably take over a month for the whole process, but it may work.

If you build your own you can have someone send you a diode and have it labeled as a $2.98 Photo Transistors.

i live down in Australia and i only buy parts, however i remember a few people getting dildas through ozzy customs, this would suggest that if it looks more flashlight shaped like some DX greenies you might be alright. Then again the fines DEFINITELY are not worth it.

Why don't you just buy a new labby ? there are no restrictions on importing mains powered lasers.

The fines are 5500 for having them in PUBLIC. If you look on the site i found that only laser pointers so not labbys or modules can get in. so basically i gotta build my own. damn. really wish i was good with the nitty gritty of electronics

That's the official government website regulations for getting lasers >1mW into Australia. 98% of laser shipments are generally fine...though it definitely is recommended to get a licence.
