    Dumb things you’ve done as a kid.

    Cut part way through my thumb between the 1st and 2nd knuckle. Took a few stitches. Bled so bad I had to hold the slice closed with my other hand, so I couldn't drive myself to the hospital. Parents weren't home so I had to go over to my 75 yr old neighbor, explain it to her (without letting her...

    Made an AC/DC power supply. Put some honking big capacitors in it. DON'T TOUCH THE BARE WIRES! Yeah, I know that. Did it anyway. Damn I can still remember how it felt and that was over 40 years ago.

    Sanwu 60mW 488nm Pocket Laser Review

    Nice review. I was just on their site looking at this laser. I would love them to do a 589 in this series also. Old post (Feb 2019) but sill relevant

    A 488 edition to the collection!

    That is really nice. Just looked at the site and it's quite reasonable too. May just have to get one. +rep for bringing it to my attention.

    Photobucket just deleted;

    ^^ Interesting that you can't even read the terms without them stopping your reading without bunch of 'block the page" ads first.

    Buy one laser- get 62 for free!

    Even though they shipped you 63 lasers for the original $9.20, they probably still made a profit.

    2W 470nm+ C6 20mm Overdrive Special

    Very well written and intriguing (love the color). Just curious, but do you know the weight of the laser with batteries?

    We lost another company!

    I have an HL532-300 that outputs 460mw. But I admit, I don't have it on for minutes at a time. It's on for less than 30 seconds then off until I need it again, not continuous. So basically, I'm no help here. :crackup: I guess a good thing to ask it "what does it output now"? The original 326...

    We lost another company!

    Wow. This really comes as a shock. I always thought highly of them. I guess all our BTB Lasers are now collector$ item$. <--- j/k. . RIP BTB.

    Explanation for my mysterious absence

    You were not here? No matter, you're back now. Just don't let her convince you to sell your lasers. If she does, call me first. j/k.

    In a dilemma

    Voted for 589. Even though I like the thought of a 473 someday, I'd hop on a 589 first.
