    Brass modules and Aluminium Pointer

    So out of curiosity i sourced these two items from my supplier, the brass module isnt all that special but still quite nice but the housing rather surprised me especially for the price. First up the Pointer housing: Excluding Paypal, shipping etc Pointer housing would be roughly ~$5USD each...

    Do Aussie customs check lasers anymore?

    So if you looked back a few years when they first initiated the ban on lasers over 1mW there are plenty of posts all over the internet of people having lasers confiscated and the likes. However noticeably eBay Australia has exploded with overspec laser pointers and theres been a lack of threads...

    New Australian Laser Group?

    So the old group 'Australian Laserists' isnt the most up to date of things and is maintained by a member last active 2014, just wondering if the handful of Aussies on this forum want to chuck up a new one for active members or not? Currently its not a group worth checking really. Thoughts...

    Another shi*y eBay experience

    So the transaction wasnt for much, but its still an annoyance knowing that someone is getting you to give them free crap. A few weeks ago i had a case opened from someone claiming an unauthorized transaction, however the item they bought was sent to their house just under a different name, so...

    Who are our active Australians?

    So whilst theres a goup 'Australian Laserists" (or similar) it hasnt been active in quite a while, and very rarely do i come across other Australian members. Just wondering how many of us Aussies are browsing the forums?

    Any interest in these cheap 5.6mm Housings?

    So whilst i was purchasing a batch of new products to sell i also though 'what the heck' and bought some of these 5.6mm housings as they where quite cheap, especially since i was just adding them to an exsisting order. My original plan was to just offer these up as 5 packs of cheap housings for...

    405nm SLD31XX over drive?

    I managed to grab a few SLD3134VF laser diodes which are supposedly 20mW 405nm diode that run at 35-50mA, however i tested a few diodes from the batch i got and i can run them at 100mA+ allowing these diodes to start burning if focused and they get very bright for 405, anyone had similar...

    Diode Packaging (Any Ideas?)

    Haven't posted here in a long time. Recently i've found myself sending a larger and larger amount of Laser diodes and whilst i dont have much trouble with diodes that aren't 'open can' but when sending diodes like the LPC-826 which are 'open can' with those delicate looking wires making me feel...

    1mW 532nm Pen -Replace 808nm Diode

    Hello, So i'm yet another australian who's at risk of being anal probed by customs and i've toiled with this idea for some time now. To my understanding 532nm lasers use a 808nm Diode and a series of crystals to lase. What i'm planning to do is buy a 1mW pen locally(532nm) and then order a...
