I've gotten a lot out of this forum.

I've decided to r4ffl3 my 532nm module and 501B host

This module and host was a gift from Blord, who made it for me just because of my bad luck, he's a real generous guy. I can't sell it as it was a gift, and I don't want it to be completely free. here's the middle ground.

A r4ffl3, with the cost of the "r4ffl3 tickets" taking the form of LPF donations.

there will be a limit of 25 posts, that's 24 "r4ffl3 tickets" and this post (OP). Do not post here if you do not intend to participate. If someone donates enough for multiple posts then someone else hits 24, I'll extend the r4ffl3 to allow all who paid to get their fair number of posts

LPF members are permitted UP TO 3 posts, but there's a catch. the first post requires a donation of $1, the second costs $2, and, you guessed it, the third costs $3. Members may pay for all three at once, then wait to post on a number they deem "lucky" later. In this way, PP fees can be lessened while still donating the required sum. this will also make less work for Avery since only one $6 donation will need to be listed instead of say a $1, a $2, and a $3 one. Or, get out your inner urges to double and triple post and take all your numbers consecutively, it matters not to me. Also, unless 24 different members donate, LPF stands to make a decent chunk. to be clear, one post costs $1, two posts costs a total of $3, and to post three times you must donate $6. I'll be using a random number generator to generate the winning post #.

Laser Pointers - PayPal Donate

some more rules and stuff:

1. only members with profiles in existence before this thread was posted may enter, in this way, people will not create multiple accounts to give themselves increased odds.

2. Members participating must be 18 years old or more.

3. Participants assume all liability for this host and module. this includes but is not limited to safe use, customs, etc. myself, LPF, and Blord disclaim all liability.

4. that's all I can think of. anyone with more and better ideas, please PM me.

We will know if posters fib about their donations, everyone can see who has donated here. I appologize in advance for making Avery post many small donations. We should give him a little while to stay caught up before anyone accuses anyone of cheating.

About the module and host if assembled by winner:

It is not IR filtered. It utilizes a single 18650 battery, not included. battery orientation is positive towards tail. I will purchase and have shipped the following safety glasses to the winner:Eagle Pair® 190-540nm & 800-2000nm Laser Safety Goggles This module is fixed focus. I can only assume Blord used a pre-assembled module, I doubt he did any crystal aligning, and I imagine he'd add an IR filter if he did. If the winner wishes, I may send it in multiple packages, just compensate me for the second package shipping. It will be sent in in component pieces, even if in only one package. this host and module are exceedingly simple to put together if the winner so desired for reasons of their own.

Here is the LPM chart Blord sent me:http://users.telenet.be/nihao/Verkoop/LPM/LPM Shakenawake Green 501B.jpg
Here is the assembled host and module, with a carrying holster that will be included. I can't imagine why anyone would want to asssemble it:

Re: Shakenawake's LPF donation raffle

Great idea Shakenawake! :beer:

An excellent way for someone to get a nearly free 532nm, and donate to LPF at the same time! :cool:

Put me down for 3 entries, I'll post the other 2 later.

Edit - Shakenawake, I feel as you do, I've been generously repped in the past, so, if I were to win, please pass the laser on to the next number drawn.

Re: Shakenawake's LPF donation raffle

Hello - Just a heads up on tjhis thread- it could end very badly if you even by accident use the 'R' word especaily at Poop Pal some one(s) accounts will very well get locked down, PP considers it to be on-line gambling so forget that word whatever you do-

I saw it happen at another laser forum a few years back and again here IIRC- no matter.. trust me its another word we should refrain from using. I could not use that word when i ran that fundraiser for James and that was for a good cause not because somebody is broke. no offence to shaken and i wish him and all you good luck but if I were you i would go back and delete that word.

it can only lead to problems,

hak

Re: Shakenawake's LPF donation raffle

if you want to see every time (eight so far) just put the R word in search and they all appear in RED how approperate considering its a word we are not supposed to use;

Using either LPF or pooppal for these is a bad idea unless you try to not draw attention with that certain word they look for.

The problem was a while back so most of you were not here when it happened and was a big deal over at *********** laser forum as they ran them all the time then PP went all crazy and some members had their PP accounts and the $$ in them m locked done for some time .

if you quoted another poster here that used that word you can delete just that word- and afaik words like fundraiser incentive etc are not a problem just the pesky old 'R' word.

hak
btw
edit the ******* is not my doing as its another bad word here worse i guess as the R word does not get caught in the LPF filters.

IMHO a filter fir the R word would be a better idea lol

2nd post.

Good point Hak, no need to draw unwanted attention to us, especially when the "donation" is for a good cause.
