Laserbtb or Sky lasers seem to sell some good labbys.

As Laik said, make an introduction thread. You can see some tips for your introduction thread by clicking the red writing in my signature .

You also might want to build your own. A 2-2.5W 445nm labby would be around $100.

You can request a heatsink to be built from the BST section, after you've introduced yourself, that is.

I'd get something from here:

And put it in this:

Default Re: where can i buy a cheap lab laser

I would suggest doing an eBay search for Laser Module...
I just did a quick search and found this...

532nm 100mW Green Laser Module TTL Modulation G100F | eBay

And there are a lot more at different prices and wavelengths
there.

well, it is quite difficult to build a lab laser, since you have no experience, i suggest you buy a new one.

It is no different than building a Hand Held Laser
but you have a lot more room to mount the components.

Read the Tutorials section of the Forum to get some
insight on building a Laser...
