Hey lpf, I recently bought a wicked lasers arctic and I'm currently looking if somebody can custom build me a focus lens (adjustable)

Anodized black or silver metal

I'm guessing that to build a beam expander that would thread onto your WL, with the lens mounted correctly would be more ( much ) than the 149.00 that WL would charge you. Maybe I'm wrong but I'm guessing not ?? But best wishes.:)

It's just a matter of knowing what you are making and if you have the right tools to do the job :)

Well yes, but the same could be applied making literally anything...

What Bob is getting at is that you can likely just buy what you need for much cheaper than getting it custom made. So unless you need different specs from what WL offers, you'd be better just buying their expander.

Still a reasonable price for a beam expander, they aren't cheap if you want a professional build.

It's over $1000 CAD for a 10x from Thorlabs.
