Would LOVE to see Jet Lasers or Sanwu create a 589nm.

Dream come true right there...

hmmm
don't I know you from SELEM??--how close are you to Newton/Conover area?

I 'might' be wanting to sell some lasers and you can see /use etc before you buy. (at SELEM)

The diodes used by JL are rated higher than the laser.,,but ask Gray.
A JL sold as 700 or 800 mW will have a 1W diode etc--this assures that years later it still will be AT LEAST spec.

You've told me about Salem but I've never been.

My concern is not the power, I just want a specific diode to test the divergence, the bdr 16x.

Do I pay later?

Is there still time to jump in on this GB? I'd probably pick out a laser or two if so.
Hey Styro, I believe the group buy is still in the planning stage so you have plenty of time.

Awesome to see you here--the GB just started and I would be happy to take your order.

There can only be ONE
styropyro
DO NOT try (yourself) anything he does.
Doing that could end very badly.

Sure
GB price saves you about $50-( so 180$down from about $240) paying me by bank check or USPS MO so no FEE
(my personal fav is not PPals it has about a $5 you must cover ) the 2020 coupon saves another 5% or $9 -add about $8 to ship to ALL CONUS buyers

so if my 'maths' are right--laser $171 (after 2020 5% coupon)--add $8 for shipping to you = $179-
and any fees from payment choice and even split on cost of JL to Texas shipping-- MIGHT be as low as $ 8 to $10 each.

I suggest you add the extra battery tube (price is unknown ATM) so you can use the free pair of 'pulled' 18650s--- Not sure where you are so...
Non CONUS members can order thru me and I will find your ship costs and you will get delivery from JL/China. (afaik ) about $38usd.

IF I happen to have a box going back to Gray you can send me whatever you want to return and I will add that to my box at no shipping charge to you.
USPS MOs IIRC are only $1.99-- threy are treated same as cash or bank check.. I do except personal bank chechs BUT cannot add to the GB order until that check clears my bank in TX.

ATM I DO have a box going to Gray-- (less than perfect (wonky) red switch on my fav red laser a PL-C (638 making about 300 mW !!) and the closest you will ever find with FDA requirements---IIRC has evrything except delay switch.
has tailcap dongle lockout - laser activation light- shutter-focus-and key lockout.

One thing that indicates how much we value JLS is the lack of hardly any being sold as used.
One exception was a 532nm PL-C overspec by 50mW (IIRC) & sold to DTR. He may have not sold it yet. contact him if you can.. that laser choice has been the one most fav via all our JL GBs. It is unlikely that any new PL-Cs will be offered. arythna (via 'raffle') got the best one --it had 440mW!! (not bad for a 250mW dpss) Mine was about 310mW.

IF I were looking for used JL, I would place a WTB thread in the BS&T section-- current conditions may force some to sell part of their collections. But I think most will keep their JL and sell others lasers first (that is what I would do) It may help if you look at sigs to see who has JLs and which they are selling----. Just do not pay more that the current GB prices as they all have the excellent warranty. ( 2 yeras IIRC) See JL.org to read ALL details on returns, warranty- etc
there are a few (possibly) typos at the site- one could be that JL tries very hard to never sell any at listed power== Gray would change a 1W to 700 or 800 mW-- making sure the laser would (almost) ALWAYS be spec or higher. Never heard that from any other 'brands'.

Sorry, meant to post this a lot earlier.

Wow okay, $180 for a 1W+ green AND it's a JL? That is incredible.

And prices for all the high powered blues are also extremely good. I hope a lot of people jump on this while this lasts.

And there's a lot of newcomers that could own one of the best lasers out there too with this so hopefully they see!

I'm definitely interested, I'm in the middle of another large transaction currently but I'm definitely keeping an eye out.

This will be #11
Best prices ever!!
Lots of free stuff.


so far we are MYB near half way there--goal is ~10 buyers .

Branden 1
Snecho 1
'StyroP' Drake 2- 3 or MYB more
hak 1 plus some JL BEs

Hope to get the order there with enough time to ship to Texas BEFORE May 1 – 5, 2020 Holiday

the long China Spring 'Break' Holiday. lasts a few weeks--started Ap 4 so it will be over soon.
I guess these holidays may be cancelled--IDKFS.

however
you MUST let me know your choice-black or silver- while they last any second battery tubes will match color of your JL .
ATM JL is making more w/ silver hosts
By default each JK that can be uses with 7 vdc will get the 2nd tube.. It be sent with laser at no extra cost--
and fairly sure I can get the 2nd batt. tube for other (max 4.2vdc) PL-Es but you cannot use them with your new laser--

If you forget and kill your JL with 2X 18650s ...sorry ..that is not covered by warranty.


I would NOT assume that I will be doing GB #12 IF it actually happens.. ( I have zero chances of surviving Crovid-- too old and 3 out of 4 ailments that make a big diff.)

so speak up Jeff (Bowtie..)
and other repeat offenders..

EVER WANT the best long distance burner??

=The 405 1W is the ONLY choice- smallest dot-super divergence ..it makes dayglo stuff POP- and using a GITD screen what you write will show a long time. It is used to pop balloons way up on the ceiling of big venues/auditoriums etc. even the white ones...
IMHO it is also the most dangerous-- absolutely ....never let someone with no knowledge use it. LOOKs harmless--
and
NEVER EVER be leave where the kiddos or some doofuss adult can find and God forbid we have another laser accident.
Remove batts and store elsewhere
Use key or dongle or both to disable
and keep the tailcap stored elsewhere when not planning to use the laser soon.

_____________
Once we have enough JLs to place the order -- I will put that here in OP and #2 and latest post-- so 'last call' could be as short as one week.
you would need to be ready to buy ASAP.

Personal check (then) will no longer be an option.

Last $$ I sent by bank transfer (around $2000) only cost us $20.
may be same now or more-- I will call my personal banker Tammy-
and post how much we will have to add--not much -very safe and fast.

At JL.org You can put your choices in your JL Cart just to find exact cost if you did not use GB. add Ship of $38. (OR MORE)
but do not send/pay - you will not GB prices or ship cost discounts or the free stuff.

pm me if you like--with any Qs or ask here,....hak

C'mon, that's not a good way to think Hak :(

I sincerely hope to meet you at SELEM when the time comes.

Please...stay safe
