Hi LPF'ers, some of you will know me most will not, I sort of retired from lasers to do other things around 3 years ago. It was nothing to do with the community or the forums it was that I had other things to design and build.

I have had many people asking me about KES400 sleds to do the 7 colour laser mod.
There have been no GB's for them here for ages and supplies on ebay seem to have dried up.
Do any members here have any that they would be prepared to sell if I directed interested parties to this thread?
I buttoned this up about 10 minutes ago and wanted to share it with you, the colour rendition of my web cam is awful and I do need to adjust intensities but you can see it has promise.
