    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...

    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...

    FS: Yellow HeNe and some other stuff! Laserbee LPM and Green Module still available!

    6 WATT green burning various things

    Hey guys. Just thought I'd make a little video of a 6 watt laser I got to mess around with last week. I use it to burn some stuff, including wood, plastic and paper. Also towards the end I focus it down and use it to slice right through things. It's not every day that you get to play with 6...

    Several Argon Lasers w/ power supplies, as is, $60

    Thought somebody might want to jump on these super cheap argon lasers. I guess some company is going out of business and selling all of their assets for dirt cheap. They look like Uniphase cylindrical heads, seller says about 25mW, as is. But for $60 each it might be worth the risk. Argon...

    Free Helium Cadmium laser, not working

    I'm not sure if anybody would be interested in this or not, but I've got a Kimmon IK4123R-B Helium-Cadmium laser and matching power supply model IM120C-B. I need to get rid of this thing (it's big and my apartment is small) so I'm willing to donate it to a good home for only the cost of...

    I now work at Laserglow

    Hey everyone, Some of you might remember me, most of you probably don't. I used to post here frequently up until about a year ago, then I up and vanished. The short story is that I was feeling the heat from school and didn't have much time or money for lasers (gasp!). The good news is all that...

    HeNe Power Supplies (all gone)

    I have a slight surplus of HeNe power supplies so I've slapped them up on ebay. They are designed for larger HeNe tubes, the specs are as follows: Input voltage: 100/200 Vac +/-10% at 50 – 400Hz Input power: 38 W max Output voltage range: 2.5 – 3.1 KVdc Output current set point: 6.5 mA (can be...

    Very Large Capacitors

    Hey guys. As a general electronics geek I, like most electronics geeks, like to occasionally play with very high voltage or high current electrical devices, often for no other reason than to do something dangerously stupid for entertainment. Having grown bored with my 9000 volt neon sign...

    Awww! Look at how teeny this HeNe is!

    Just look at it! http://cgi.ebay.ca/WORLDS-Smallest-He-Ne-Helium-Neon-Laser-HVPS-SWEET_W0QQitemZ180295929770QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item29fa798faa&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1215|240%3A1318|301%3A0|293%3A1|294%3A50 It's cute as all hell. I...

    LaserBee I Review

    I've had me LaserBee I for a solid 7 months now, and overall, I'm impressed. First of all, its deadly accurate. I took it along with a few lasers of mine to school and tested it against a Coherent LPM worth at least a grand. All the LaserBee readings were within 2mW from the Coherent meter for...

    TEA co2 laser turns air into plasma

    Thought you guys might find this interesting. Yesterday in the lab at school we got to play around with a Lumonics TEA-203 CO2 laser. It's has been somewhat modified so we could put in our own gas mix at various pressures to examine the effects of the E/P ratio of TEA laser. Anyways, this laser...

    Just paid for a CO2 laser I got on ebay

    I think it was a steal, any thoughts? http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=290290354307 I plan on building an enclosure for it. But since I only really plan on using it to burn stuff, would a focusing optic be of much use here?

    Run those argons, people!

    Over the last few months I have been very busy with college, and I never got around to running my argon laser. I ran it a lot over last summer and about the start of September was when I put her away for a while. Well I never got around to using it until after Christmas. And man was that ever a...

    VFD tube clock

    I just got one of these babies from ebay. Seems like there is essentially no market for these at all. The guy I bought it from seems to be the only place to get one of these. But dammnnnn is it ever pretty. Each digit is inside it's own vacuum florescent display (VFD) tube. The circuit...

    What random talents do you have?

    Lets see what else we can do other then shoot lasers at things. I can solve Rubiks cubes up to 6x6 and I'm pretty good at Guitar Hero (but I can't actually play any real instruments) What about YOU?

    My first attempt at a spriograph

    After screwing up twice on my blu-ray I had three drives without lasers in them, so I pulled out the drive opening motors and glued some mirrors onto them. I taped them down to decks of cards, and wired them up with pots 10k pots (WAY too high resistance. The motors stop completely after about...

    I found a guy on the internet defending WL

    I saw a thread where a guy mentioned he bought a WL 35mW Advanced, and I mentioned that WL isn't very good and to go with NOVA next time. Then this guy shows up, quotes me and says At this point I linked to Nova X-125 and linked to WL Fusion 125mW and showed that WL is more expensive. I also...
