Stopping into say hi and thanks to the members of LPF , i have just recently discovered my interest in lasers as a hobby along with my other hobbies that include Vaping , astronomy , firearms and some RC , I'm a 51 yr old kid (according to my wife) and spend many days away from home working as a towboat captain , during my free time I enjoy researching whatever interests me (which led me here) after purchasing a cheap 303 laser from eBay , I am currently deciding on my first purchase of a really nice laser from either Jetlasers or Tech-Lasers , I've definitely been enlightened (schooled) in lasers along with the responsibilities and safety of owning a high powered laser (and I still have much to learn) , thank y'all for posting and sharing a massive amount of knowledge here , simply amazing ! Have a great day !

Greetings, what wavelength are you looking to get?

p.s You said Laser-Tech, did you mean Tech-Lasers
classic 532nm Green handheld laser pointer real power focus adjustable
Hi RedCowboy , yes I did mean Tech-Lasers , O.P. Edited (guess I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning !) As for wavelength I've been looking at the Ple pro in 532nm 300mw or the 462nm 1.4mw , I looked at the 520nm but only available options are 50mw 70mw then jumps all the way to 1W and a bit out of my current price range (beam visibility is most important to me as well as staying in that price range at the moment) , I will purchase the 10X B.E. Along with it ... It looks like Jetlaser and Tech-Laser are the same lasers under different model names with small differences in price yet equal when shipping is applied

Hi klpbaron :wave:

Welcome to the wonderful world of lasers and the forum.
That is a really nice intro, a towboat captain = pretty darn cool :)
Please remember to get proper safety laser goggles for the wavelength of your laser if it is over 5mW.
Enjoy, have fun and most importantly be safe.
Hope you have a great weekend!
