Ok, so, If you have a Kodak digital camera , it came with an adapter for a dock or picture printer.

this is the same a a line lens, also flat on one side. This is what the line looks like.

Now I use mine for a printer but most people don't. Luckily I have one from an old fat digital camera.

The old one is on top.
Now I already have a line lens, but its very small so i i ever loose it, i can just cut one out of this. :)
Actually, i would say that this could be were novalasers got there line lenses from because they line up perfectly.

Good find. yet I doubt nova gets there lenses from Kodak camera holders. probably just a similar design.

I also found that in my old digital camera the flash cover creates a line

If you lose a glass fuse they are cheap and you can get em anywhere. Shine your laser through one.

A laboratory glass stir stick makes a good line lens.
You can get them at a pharmacy IIRC.
