Re: RPL-E 473: Picture Heavy Build Thread!!!! Take a Look!!!!

I have no plans to put something that is anything within reason of buying into the RPL-- won't say what until I actually have cash to play with. Likely... 6 years or so :p

I think a 589 would be neat inside one of these, but 473nm is the most suiting "common" wavelength for this host. Maybe 659nm/671nm DPSS would be nice. Though nobody really cares for the beam specs like they used to...

Yeah don't get on the bandwagon with the 445's. I can't stand them...

Just my thoughts though ;)

Thanks bloom! I love it. As you may know, I have been selling a number of my lasers, but I think this one is here to stay.

That wavelength is just too cool the host is awesome as well.

I just put a FS thread up in the BST for this Laser. I am trying to simplify my laser collection and while I really love this laser most of the fun for me is in the building.

Very nice Isaac. You're right though as I think the pics don't do it justice. +REP

It sounds as though you don't have a Dremel unless you got one recently. May I suggest the 8220 2/28. Powerful portable with 2 lithium ion batteries. Can't live without my unit. Use it at work and home. Have a couple plug-ins but there's nothing like a portable unit to make things easier. Not cheap though as it is currently $178 on Amazon. 1 hour charger. Once you start using it a lot you would want 2 batteries.
Actually they have the 1/28 for $99 right now (comes with the same stuff from what I can see other than the second battery and you could buy another battery for $40 or at another time).
Bought my future son (daughter is getting married in August) one for Christmas with a couple accessory packs and he absolutely loves it.
