CW dye lasers are a lot of hard work to get operational. Do you have an appropriate high-pressure circulator and nozzle? You may or may not be able to use a different dye depending on the installed optics; Ideally you'd want to use R6G and hit it with as much 532nm light as you can.
Also, be prepared to have neon stains on everything.
Yep, got the circulator which works. After removing a piece of something in the nozzle, it seems to have a good flat and steady flow. There was actually a little dye in it when I got it, but who knows how old it was. Not sure about the optics, but the sticker says it can operate between 454 nm and 1 micron.
