That looks like a Black Buck 8M from X-Woosee on eBay. I believe he charges $6.00 for shipping from Russia. DTR is out of them at the moment, so this is your only other option I know of.

WE like helping out.. & we hope you are not 'hit and run'
If you are here to stay we ask that you complete all your profile then at "forums/newcomers/welcome''. make nice with a thread,, the title is best when it contains your location ...like HELLO fro Tenn.
Post it that way you will attract others near your and have a real live person share our addiction( you DO know that they a very addictive?)
Many now own LPMs and we never ask for anything to meter all your lasers anytime.
We are often suprized how many join us, yet fail to see themselves as 'newcomers'.
We want to be a friendly/family forum.. and its only common respect/manners to get an 'intro' from ALL new members..
also once in your profile .. it will be seen every time we click your username,,hope you are near Houston... we are planning another big laser meet=up (TEXLEMII)

I'm just learning about all this stuff ,I honestly stumbled on to Lakers, I purchased a tool box in an auction, and among all the other things was what I thought was a very strange looking flashlight. I purchased some batteries for it and I am intrigued to say the least

Well it looks you made it safely I hope without looking into the laser which you thought was a flashlight...
That driver is most likely for something very powerful but any laser it dangerous..Do your homework please and learn.
Which brings the point of who ever built the laser you bought at auction should of labeled it..

I have lots in stock now and more on the way.

You've also messaged me on ebay and I provided you with a link to them.

I'm glad that you haven't done yourself an injury with the laser yet - if the one in your auction win had a BB6 driver, it's likely pretty powerful as that driver can run very powerful laser diodes. What colour was the laser? Knowing this, you can purchase appropriate safety glasses to protect your eyes from the beam.

I have tried to visit the site as much as I can, a lot of really interesting things for me to learn

It's a blue 7w, unfortunately a friend was careless and damaged the diode, so I'm going to have to get a new one

You should not allow friends to handle your lasers as you can be responsible for whatever damage they might inflict on others. It is difficult to say what happened to a dropped laser. It could be as simple as a bad battery connection, or as bad as a defective laser diode and driver. Hope you learned a lesson from this.
