Vettech, think that is a cool discovery. Price isn't to bad either. Impressive. :gj:

Ps, I found these inexpensive tripods on eBay, I bought some but haven't received them yet, so I can't say good or bad, but the price was so cheap, I had to give them a try. :thinking:

I have tried many cheap tripods off eBay and the only ones that were worth having were at least $10.00. Everything cheaper than that turned out to be crap. I've got four good tripods and excellent clamps to hold lasers of all sizes. That link I gave looks like a good one. I'm considering buying it myself.

For those who are unfamiliar with the so- called GATLING! A neat blow up view!!
Nice exploded view however it is just an artists representation/artwork, not an actual photograph image of the real thing so doesn't tell us much about seam or no seam--the seam and one piece or two piece host body is not an important marketing details. Have you ever seen screws, a tailcap and focus head with no threads?

No glue on this what so ever! None!
The gatling hosts have been around a while.

Yes the one you have if there is no seam under where you have the clamp is a newer model 1 piece main body tube version.
IS lower cost to make that than to have girls assemble a multi-piece and seal ---strong too--an improvement in both directions.

Earlier original gattling style lasers which are still in production both long two battery versions and the one battery shorter 532nm host versions/models were two piece and glued some were waterproof lens window with body tail cap and focus o-ring sealed and some not depending on how seller ordered them, The ywo piece model main tube seam was about 1/2 inch below the center circular bar support in the lower center section section --towards the tailcap.

You can see the two piece seam in in the center below the middle bar support in this image:


Production of same:


Here is a photo of larter version host main tube with no seam:

Well, somebody's got to be the guinea pig. Maybe I'll have better success than you? Let you know after I received them. They look like the same clamps that are on Sanwu's tripods, (that's why I bought them.) Thought if the clamps are the same as Sanwu's how bad can they be for under $4.00 ? :thinking:

I looked at the one you linked in the eBay thread. It won't hold a heavy build like large pointers or large copper heat sinks. You really do get what you pay for. I have tripods and clamps that will hold up to 5 kg, or more.

Thanks, hoping for the best. If they hold what Sanwu's tripods hold that's all I'm going to need. :)

Me too on the break down on the changes.:beer:
Vettech, nice review:)
This host is sure attractive "well pretty cool" and I don't need another laser like a hole in my head but for a 1W blue as low as $39 or even the 200mw red for $19 all I can say is DAM this hobby:(:undecided:
I'm guessing the front ID and brass module is the standard 20mm ish wide?
I do feel for those who paid $150 and way up just a short time ago..

Let's see now, your user name is boomlasers, and the company you are pushing is called Boomlasers, just a guess, but I'll bet you work for them, right?
The bad thing is, you're asking nearly 3 times more for your laser than Vetttech paid for his; you ought to sell a bunch to the guys here at that great price! :eek:
Probably ought to stick to ebay where you'll find buyers for your overpriced lasers.

He also has joined 4 social groups in a matter of 3 posts?
Like Bowtie said, I really can't believe you tried to trump or "spammed" this good thread with your add:thinking::whistle:
We also don't want to hear its a whole complete kit in a box??
Edit: now 2 other necro posts selling your product? Really a 301 532 kit for $230?????

You'r starting to Spam the Threads on the
Forum with your advertising...
That is frowned upon on the Forum and could
result is [Red Bars] under your Avatar.....:tsk:

If you want to sell your wares... go to the
Buy/Sell/Trade section of the Forum. It would
also have been nice if you could introduce
yourself to the Forum in the Welcome section...

Thanks for the kudos! I was struck by the almost alien death ray look to it. After owning only Flashlight and Light saber looking host, its refreshing to have something a bit different !


Another view!

Looks even better at that angle:) Your right as to something out of a James Bond movie:whistle:
Vettech, are you experienced enough as to take of the front and get a rough measurement of the module being used?

Good points way to handle.

Guy is banned now for SPAM advert/unauthorized advert.

IS amazing how profoundly :banghead: stupid these types are--not even reading the thread. He wants to sell the same laser as the OP reported he purchased for $54 with free shipping for $149.00

How brain damaged can a reseller hustle be/get? :crackup:
