    Old 7w lab laser with missing interlock

    I’d have to look into the legalities of selling it on eBay, but considering the size and weight and the packaging required to survive international shipping, I can’t see it fetching much on eBay to be worthwhile, I don’t even know what it cost new, over 10 years ago and before it had 11000 hours...

    Old 7w lab laser with missing interlock

    I think you’re right about disassembly. On closer inspection, inside front (Photos), it is a little dusty, and some wires cut near the laser unit, not sure if that was the manufacturer or the last researcher who used the system, I think it’s common to cut wires in lasers that are discarded...
