best deals are posted in the BS&T section , where you should have posted a WTB(want to buy)

the welcome section is for 'intros' of new members- so you used the wrong section and did not do a very good intro IMHO.

please also finish filling out your personal profile and we often ignore those who keep that keep their location a secret... IT needs to be in your profile.
- IF its not in yr profile we wont see it. even if you put it into your threads and posts-

I must ask your reason for no 'rest cycles'

why not own two greens to allow one to rest??

sometimes when I am doing night pics I DO wish I had more time before needing the
rest cycle BUT that also may keeps me from being seen by someone who is a laser hater.
Almost lab lasers with even passive cooling can be ran non-stop.

Those with fans or TEC w/fans(active cooling) can run for days and longer..

most currently 3$ Greedbay pen pointers are way more than 5mW
some are > 75mW=and at that price you can afford to kill a few-I suggest 2 min on with pen pointers & one off. (depending upon the ambient temp)
If its hot outside, say 95 degrees the laser cannot cool below that- so perhaps a duty cycle of 1 min on and two off would be safer-

VERY few here are WL fans (exception are those old WLs)

IF you insist on a newer WL buy one used from a member-
BEST deals at LPF come from trusted vets
next comes non vets with >100posts and good rep---see the reviews!!

then other newcomers (but be very careful)

then buying from USA or Canada
only THEN buy from china- exception (only)
is JETLASERS.org
few JLs get sold used and they get purchased quickly.

also they offer some have a much longer duty cycle-

However erring on the side of safety is wise- warranties are void when you damage your laser by NOT being kind to it...


ALSO I do not think your really spent enough time yet using our search
function---

almost this exact Q has been asked and answered many times.

hope this is helpful & I offer you a +6 rep bump if you get 'with our program'

& read ALL stickies especially those in the welcome section.

"how to get along on forums" is a must read..

WE are NOT your 'ordinary' forum- we are family-and, as family, can be more cruel than strangers-- sometimes..

Looking fwd to reading your new intro--

I guess a little advertisement is allowed.
If you are looking for a first laser you might want to try out a 300mw 532nm green or a 1W 445nm blue, you can get either of theses for around $225, if you are interested, send me a PM and check out my site below.
Thanks
Edit: just saw you have a price constraint. In that case you might have to try out o-like or lazerer. Good luck with that. Sorry about the mistake

Hmmmm IMHO this post is spammy -SO if it was a 'mistake' (I have my doubts-) then delete it and leave NOTHING-

Help me get unconfused ...Are you 'rebranding' JETLASERS or Selling for Gray?
ATM ,except for new members (who dont serach) JL has built one of the best reps at LPF-- not REALLY a lot left to prove from JL-- but you however are still somewhat unknown and unproven ...AND your others approaches on this in the past leaves some doubt-- what happened in the Thread you deleted that made you do that?

Gray (Li-irrc NOT Le) has become a special person to many here and has been more help to this forum and many members who have fallen on bad times--than any will ever know-(even me, who has been privy to some kind things that was between us)- sadly he has been taken advantage of a few times and thus many here will be watching over Gray forever---These scams have started out not unlike you have-- promises of great service and super deals up to the point of large volume sales ..then POOF! gone into the wind with many peoples money..

So know this-- I am never going to be NOT a part of JL and Grays doings-
if you want to take this to PM no problem but I have held nothing back in this post--

The eyes of TEXAS (& LPF) are on you..
