Hey everyone!

I've got some huge medical expenses coming up sooner than I expected, so it's time to sell my prized laser. This laser is NOS, less than three hours total run time, starts up instantly (after programmed safety delay on power up) and is super stable. It's been babied and cared for since I bought it new from Dr. Sam.

Sig, that's one nice HeNe, anyone should be proud to have this beauty in their collection!
I can't believe there's been no response; If I didn't own a 594nm, I be tempted to drive up to your place and give this baby a new home. :D

Sorry to see that you have to let it go, especially for damn medical expences.

Thanks BowtieGuy! Yeah, it's a shame these don't liquidate like they used to, really. They're beautiful lasers.

Dr. Sam does lifetime repairs on every unit like this he sells too I hear. Not that this would ever need a repair as long as it's cared for.

If this doesn't get any bites I get to keep it (yay!) but I'm not sure how I'm going to come up with the rest of the funds I need for my healthcare, which really really sucks.

I'm Sgt Schultz when it comes to gas lasers, what is the beam diameter and divergence?

Really beautiful laser in excellent condition.

Hope you can keep it and find healthcare money elsewhere----will be hard later to find as nice an example to replace it with.

Sorry dude! I don't have beam specs for it. I don't even have the apartment space to do a real divergence measurement anymore either. I might be able to get a crude beam width if you want though.

IIRC they're a melles griot LYR-173. Rated:

power: >2.0 mW
beam diameter: 0.75mm
divergence: 0.92mRad
electrical: 2.6kV run/10kV start
optimal current 6.5 mA

Indeed I have one of these, they're very nice.

Sorry, I can't go lower than 300. The shipping cost alone is significant.

I already have an offer for 300, but of a suboptimal payment method (not PP), the person who made the offer knows it's on hold pending any other offers from people who can use PP. So, no point in haggling with me to get it under 300. =P

Yeah, nice ones are usually at least 500 bucks anyways, plus a supply frankly...and far higher quality than most lasers. 300 is a bargain! New, they're about $2100! Assuming they were in production anymore. MG has stopped production of yellow and orange tubes. Only large green and a couple reds are even made now, mostly parts for equipment like stabilized HeNes and wave meters and stuff.

$300 with power supply + packing and shipping is a rare bargain for a classic, well kept, and high quality laser.

Anyone ever wanting such a device ---speak now or forever hold you peace.
