Hi, I am new to lasers. Do not have one yet except for a cheapy cheapy one sold at local store. But I am investigating and reading to see if I want to start a hobby with lasers. Thanks for all your generous sharing.
Ohmmmmy. Welcome to the LPF. You needn't start out collecting wavelengths that are expensive. There are many decent Class IIIB laser that can be had in a hand full of wavelengths for very little money on eBay. Enjoy your stay.
please-- (DONT DO LIKE I DID) Either get eyewear WITH the laser, OR have them before you buy...
also buying from another member is a GREAT way to start here.
(in MANY ways)
you can even post a wanted thread in BST--- you will soon have access.. (not yet)
Eye ware that covers all visible wavelengths is best when starting out.. (some say 200 to 1000nm)
but 400 to 800 is what we like to 'play' with.
PM if I can help...hak
and always search first!!!!... then ask..
and adding your hometown into your profile will be a great idea .
