[quote author=FrothyChimp link=1216170528/0#11 date=1216187007]Selling homebuilt lasers is as illegal as importing them. If you add the necessary safety features required by the FDA for the class of laser and register the laser you can sell them.
21 CFR 1000-1040.11 has the safety regulations
"Affix to each medical laser product, in close proximity to each aperture through which is emitted accessible laser radiation in excess of the accessible emission limits of Class I, a label bearing the wording: "Laser aperture.""
I'm pretty sure this qualifies
which i have been putting on every laser that i sell.
I made some different labels for my Blu Rays & higher than 245mW lasers which I have been putting on as well...
I'm getting a laser power meter in today or tomorrow which I'll be using a lot.. I'm going to make graphs and give the peak & average over 60sec values of every laser that I sell. make a "certificate of compliance" and make it look nice I think this will help w/ the legal stuff also.
just thought I'd share this.[/quote]
FYI, don't know if it really matters, but that is the 'old' way to list the Classification number, it's now supposed to be listed as Class 3b, instead of Class IIIb.
