    Laserglow "RIGEL-6" 593.5nm Pen (LPF 5th anniv. Ed.)

    I know I'm a few months late here, but I just saw this post (I periodically log in and search for "Laserglow" to see what's the latest). I'd just like to verify that the Rigel-6 in your possession is indeed the only one with that engraving. And it IS engraved - with a CO2 laser - and not...

    FS: Laserbee LPM, 532nm module, and non-working argon

    I hope you guys don't mind too much, but since I'd really like to get rid of this argon locally, I'll probably not entertain any shipping requests for now. It's going to be a PITA because even just to get a quote I need to box it up and find out the dimensions and weight, and at that point I've...

    FS: Laserbee LPM, 532nm module, and non-working argon

    Hey everybody. I'm selling some of my lasers and laser-related things. Why, you ask? I'll tell you. Since I started working at Laserglow and began working with lasers every single day, most of my personal lasers have been sitting around collecting dust. Combined with my inability to stop...

    Looks like the FDA is finally fed up with handheld lasers...

    As I said earlier, the FDA said that they're not going accept products into the USA that are portable and exceed Class 3R/IIIa safety limits, and any paperwork that might allow such a product into the USA will be denied (product reports etc.), UNLESS you file a variance application for that...

    The "Event Horizon" very pic heavy

    A build named after me? I'm honored! :D Seriously though, nice job!

    Looks like the FDA is finally fed up with handheld lasers...

    A large portion of the people who buy (bought?) those products from Laserglow use them for bird abatement. Farmers, golf course owners, even airport operators use them to frighten away birds from long range. Another legitimate use is long-range microwave antenna alignment. If you need to line up...

    Such a lawsuit would be very expensive regardless of whether it succeeded or not.

    Looks like the FDA is finally fed up with handheld lasers...

    I'm just going to throw my two cents in here. Please note my views do not represent the views of Laserglow! I've been fairly involved with all of this for the past few weeks and this is what's going on. As you've seen in this thread, the CFR has long since stated that Surveying, Leveling and...

    FS: Laserglow Aquarius-5 class IIIa 473nm pointer

    If you'd like, PM me the serial number (should be written inside the aperture cap) and I'll tell you what power level it was sold as and exactly how old it is.

    Video of 12 Watt 532 nm laser - that's not a typo

    No worries Justin, I've already set myself on fire once before in a non-laser related electrical experiment. The chances of me doing it twice are very slim.

    Video of 12 Watt 532 nm laser - that's not a typo

    The filter I put over the camera: I found it in a drawer of assorted optical bits, I don't actually know where it's from, but it appears to be made of the same material as our OD 7 532 nm goggles... it's probably a sample. What I was wearing: Laserglow branded OD 7 532 nm goggles. AGF5327XX on...

    Video of 12 Watt 532 nm laser - that's not a typo

    I highly doubt it unless you're using UV lasers. Cancer can only be caused by ionizing radiation, which starts somewhere in the UV and shorter wavelengths. High-energy photons impact the DNA in the nucleus of a cell and do enough damage to alter the DNA but not kill the cell. Lower energy...

    Video of 12 Watt 532 nm laser - that's not a typo

    Occasionally here at Laserglow we see some awfully powerful lasers come through. And once in a while I get to take a brief break from testing and verifying and fixing lasers to play around with them. I didn't get to take any video of the 25 watt 532 nm laser that we had a while back (all I...

    Made a Video of a LaserGlow Polaris 1000 Vs. Wicked Arctic

    That was... really awesome!

    Need waterproof 1.5mw laser built

    Speculation: I think you might have serious problems burning anything with a laser under water. The water surrounding the object will dissipate the heat very, very quickly, and the water scatters laser light very quickly so the range will be very, very short. EDIT: I stand corrected.
