This is a thread to help newbies to find some useful things for their lasers

------------------------
Description of some usefull items
+ price for 1piece
+ Where to buy

Air Blower: Helpful for cleaning a lense/keyboard, blows dust away - $5 - here

Balloon: For popping - $1 - here

Batterie tester: Shows you the Voltage of your batteries - $12 - here

Dichro: Lense for combining two wavelengths to one (650nm+532nm=yellow), resulting color depends on the power of the lasers - $30 - here

Diffraction grating: For a wavelength comparison test or for star effects - $10 - here

Digital Multi Meter: A must have for Voltage, Ampere and Ohm tests, also required for some laserpowermeters - $10 - here

First Surface Mirror: For reflecting 100% of the laser beam (normal mirrors reflect about 75-80%) - $7 - here

Glas cube: For optical experiences - $4here

Flash paper: Magican accessoire which go up in flames when ignited - $5 - here

IR filter: Tests how much IR is in your laser - $10 - here

Laserpowermeter: You´re able to test the real laser output, there are some good products around from lasersbee, Kenom and nospin, mine (HLPMII) is able to test lasers form 1-200mW - $60 - here

Lensepen: Usefull for cleaning a lense, I also recommend good bottom swabs - $10 - here

Magnesium: Strong reflector with a high albedo - $1 - here

Matches: For burning experiences - $1 - here

Safety goggles: Make sure to get them for all lasers over 5mW if you want to use them indoor, different laser wavelengths require different filters and glasses, but many of them reach a bigger spectrum and safe you from many wavelengths - You must get the one specified for your laser, otherwise it is totally useless - $30 - here

Smoke Cartidge: produces steam to allow you to make your laserbeam much more visible, also used for testing leaky flats or houses - $1 - here

Tape: For burning - $2 - here

Tripod with Clamp Mount: Holds the laser, alternative is a clothes pin - $5 - here+here

Uranium marble: For fluorescing experiences, especially with 405nm lasers - $5 - here

---------------------------

This might be slightly off-topic...but I was looking into getting a lenspen, and wasn't sure what size to get; is the normal size (what I believe you have depicted) sufficient for cleaning pen-style pointers?

Otherwise very nice and organized picture!

That's a good start for a newbie. Be prepared to keep "needing" more and more equipment and supplies as your hobby grows.
This is my current "Laser Desk"

And my case full to the top with "effects and tricks" (way too many, to show separately)
Partial list; Uv reactive dye's, beam splitters, prisms, flash cotton (4X stronger then paper),florescent minerals, uranium globes, GITD paint, balloons, "popper" bottles, diffraction gratings, fiber optics of all sizes, FS mirrors, convex and concave mirrors (cool effects), aerosol dispersion systems, etc....... also 4 fog machines, not in box.

:thanks:
When I bought my first "real" laser, I never dreamed I would end up spending thousands of dollars on this hobby.
My plan was to get one each of 650nm, 532nm, 405nm.

I now have 72, and am buying/dealing on, 10-12 more gas lasers including, Ar, N, Ar/Kr, 543nm He-Ne
