Well,

Dragon Lasers and CNI are getting better with their lab lasers. The first 2 I ordered took 10 days, the 447nm one took only 6 days :D

So excited ahhhh! :D



Next lasers are getting pricey though, over $700 :(

There's something special about 405, it's a dark night time kind of beam, powerful yet understated, I like it.

Indeed! I've seen 405nm and it is definitely interesting :)

The dot of a 405nm messes with many peoples eyes. Many times it looks like a spider to me. If you point it at different colored surfaces it seems to "change" such as a white to brown surface. It is a very nice color though. The beam is cool to look at. I have a friend out West that uses a 405nm hand held laser to look for fluorescent minerals in desert rock outcrops at night.

Neat! My used to have 3mW 405nm would be very dim and very blurry. The camera even picked it up as gray :D

are you planning to buy handheld soon?
Not at all haha. I was considering a Rigel from LaserGlow around New Year's but they never replied to an email I sent them about a discount they had going on.

Labby's are in my blood :)

You may want to consider one powerful enough to have a easily visible beam (500mW+) but you won't be able to just point it at the wall, you need something for a beam stop that won't burn.

WHAT! If I had a laser that made a dot that looked like a spider I would try a different lens and if that didn't work I would get rid of it right quick.

Nothing wrong with labby's, you don't have to worry much about import restrictions and customs or breaking any laws.

He can stack the labby's or just use 2 at a time, after living on a very small boat for 3 years and now living in 2 trailers for many years now I know how people can adapt to having only a small space to work with. Where I live there are 2500 lots with travel trailers and motor homes, you would be surprised what some people live in.

Pi lol, nice and compact answers just like your living space:crackup: My coffee table has been my work bench in my apartment where I live most of the time and I keep adding junk that I think I just might use:whistle: I open my closet doors and slam it shut as fast as I can hoping nothing comes flying out but the hinges are weakening and one day those closets will explode! Now back to Hap it would be nice to see those 3 beams stacked on top of each other "hint"
