Why is it that the copper heat-sink sticks out from the host like that? I'm guessing it's just to show how it looks like? Any pics with the heat-sink installed all the way?
I am finally ready to buy this host with a 12X in it. Do you have your own source of 12X's or should I get one from O-like and have it shipped to you?
Also, I have an existing 405-G-1 glass lens I would like used in the build, but it needs to be taken out of an existing host. It should be very easy to do, and I would compensate you for the [minimal] labor. Also, I would have no issue if you accidentally broke it so there's no "risk" involved.
Please let me know what you can do, and what kind of prices I'm looking at. I wouldn't mind speaking over PM if you prefer to do so. Thanks and have a great day, FP!
Come on, this is not a Jayrob kit. Fp makes his own kits so don't come here and try to get him to change his prices by telling him Jayrob is cheaper. This is not like going to Walmart and telling them that Kmart has it cheaper. These are some great members & builders trying to help other members out with some great work on making kits and making it easier for us to build our own lasers, since a lot of us don't have the equipment to do so.Nice build, but you may want to drop the price a little bit cause Jayrob can make a similar kit for only around $40-60
Telling people what they should sell their stuff for in their own sales thread won't gain you many friends. Plus it's not like FP.. or myself either, have CNC lathes like jayrob does. All jayrob has to do is push a button for the most part and a little while later he has a finished heatsink with very little of his actual time needed. FP has to stand in front of the lathe and actually make this stuff... Just like I do with mine. And that takes time. ANd time is money.
And FYI.. my tank007 builds are even more expensive than FP's.. though they're a bit more complicated too. So FP is by no means the most expensive.
well SORRY for trying to help him get more business. I was just saying that people could do the same types of builds for less, so if this guy drops his price a little he would not loose his customers to other members.
You know a sarcastic retaliation post like that probably wasn't the best move on your part.... even if you don't happen to have any personal respect for the members and builders on this forum, at least fake some--for your own sake.
