PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP please sub

PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP plz sub it.
***************************
This thread is all about Ebay(et al) listings related to lasers and equipment needed.
:na:There is NO REAL need to start another thread. Subscribe and you will have instant notice of new items listed-
This is how ebay listings are handled at other forums and it works very well as after the listing is over there is no need for old worthless threads clogging up the boards. They are a PITA if you need to read them only to find the deal is now gone.
:shhh:
To our beloved newcomers(plz do not call them noobs- that is not nice).:evil:

It is considered good manners to NEVER bid against a fellow member who has found an ebay item first and IS bidding-
if you already have seen this item and are ALREADY bidding please put that in a post.

If you are posting about an item that you are NOT bidding on you MUST put that in your post here- same with items you ARE bidding on- if we do not see that expect us to consider the item up for grabs-

You will fully understand this once your are a bidder and your bids get needlessly bumped. plz be nice..:)

Please note that an item showing no bids may still(if noted) be considered as 'taken' by the maker of the post- as bidding too early is not wise and they may be using a bid sniper so- if they call 'DIBBS' have a heart and some common manners and just be happy to wish them good luck.( BE NICE!!!):tinfoil:
btw PM me if you want to know some the secrets to using bid snipe to win and win cheap. I never bid ANY other way EVER and this has had wonderful success for me.

EDIT add on..


For the best info and guidence spend some *Quality Time* with Sam Goldwasser phd.

No secret I am a big fan....I will link to some thing that will educate and amuse.
The quoted parts coustesy Sam.s Laser...take a look at the texts and itemms above and below.

"Buyer Beware for Laser Purchases
In perusing the various laser offerings from time-to-time at the eBay Auction Site as well as the on-line or print catalogs of various surplus outfits, it very often seems that given the model or size of the laser, the claimed power output ratings are considerably higher than what may be realistic while still achieving a reasonable system lifetime, or are not possible at all. The most common error (intentional or not) is to use the CDRH safety sticker value rather than the manufacturer's or measured power output in the description of the laser. This is an upper bound - the actual capability can be anything lower! And, even if the seller states that they measured the actual output power, there's no guarantee that their laser power meter was calibrated within the last century or that they knew how to use it properly!
Here are some comments on laser power and other claims that you should be aware of before purchasing a used laser:
***********
I will leave this last line^^^ to make you go and find whats next...teaser

.Google Sam'LaserFAQ and there are thousands of SAM hits- click ahead to page 10 and they are all still Dr.SAM . He is not much for forums and such.. olde schoole but not really old. I invited him in person . so have others.. hes on the projector forum with IIRC one post... some day maybe he will join more laser forums. hes fetired has the time and may be doing SELEM VI in Aug. again.. hope so.. a one vet told me at SELEM V... "if you dont know Sam you dont know Jack."

Heres some Samlinks from his long list of sources.. these are some of my favs and there are more good deals to be found that are NOT on EekBay..


newcomers and some that have been here but still dont know Sam need to get used to using and hearing about Sam.




http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/laserlps.htm#lpswtf

At Sams resources he lists hundreds-- these are some from the list that have excellent everything.. new items and sales--bookmark & sign up for newsletters.
these are all well kown here..

Sam also Sells stuff from his-"classifieds" < no fear of anything NOT the absolute honest and accurate descriptions. He admits to not keeping these pages tidy and up to date so...........

so if you email him about a listed item- you kinda need to ask first if he still has it.
He is also good to ask about a rare or high dollar item you may have found- he knows the values of most. A very generous and kind gent IMHO.

I will make a new post with more about Sam and may make or add to this OP new stuff relevent.


I would kill to see his 'stash' He also by proxy does sell on Feebay a good friend/associate out of Fl. handles all but the shipping out of items Sam has they list items from both.

For the best info and guidence spend some *Quality Time* with Sam Goldwasser phd.

I'm glad you're doing this. Seeing new threads popping up for every "good deal" on eBay--that is always subject to the final bid--was really cluttering the board up.

Heres one for you projector nuts. Its the heart of the projector. Simply add scanners, wire it up and your set to go. It can even do analog modulation.
eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d
Red = 500mw 660nm
Blue = 500mw 445nm
Green = 200mw 532

So total of ~1w after optics. Even if the output comes to 2/3 this, its still a pretty good deal having it all put together for you, plus it looks easy to upgrade the red later.

They also have a unit with 635nm module (800mw total output) and a smaller 300mw unit.

They appear to be on thick baseplates too. The only thing I'd change is the dichro mounts - they're not adjustable it seems.

But for the price of a single green laser module, you get RGB. Wont be up to PeeLee standards with ultra fine beams or super mrad, but its probably a lot better than the guts of say a REKE 500. I'll probably get one for an in house testing laser. Saves getting my big projector out (which is quite heavy and I havent even loaded it up with lasers yet! And shooting 3-4watts around my apartment with light coloured walls? no thanks!)

So this product, a box from winni at goldenstar (or whatever box you choose if you can machine metals), and a set of galvo's (30K from hak - hint hint), and you have a projector

This is a great idea. Other forums have a feebay section we need one here.
I vote for this to be a sticky. I do feel bad for starting so many theads of my finds.

good job Len.

I just found a GREAT seller - newgazer - his stock is very wide and very reasonably priced. I haven't had a chance to buy from them yet and am pretty excited to do so. Not sure of the consistency but even if it isn't totally reliable, for the price it would still be worth it. From what I've read in the reviews, they are very vigilante when it comes to replacements and refunds and the shipping is always free. Hope you can all benefit from this one!

0-50V at up to 250mA. Voltage is regulated, but current isn't. Not very useful for most of our purposes, and damn pricey considering the specs.
