Hi there,my name Is Chris Smith I am 48 years old from Jacksonville Illinois I am a union heavy equipment operator for local 965 I.U.O.E. Out of Springfield Illinois. I got into the laser world by accident with a laser at the dollar store that caught My eye and it has grown From there. I have bought several thousand dollars in lasers now And I have made some bad decisions with some purchases because of not knowing and then I meet a guy that has done nothing but give me accurate information as well as nothing but time to talk to me and answer my questions whenever and I am waiting on my second purchase to show up this week and it is from Sanwu Lasers. I have a lot to learn and I was also advised this would be the place to do it so I subscribed along with the five dollars a month to hopefully find a spot here with all you laser enthusiasts So I can learn more and pastime and meet new people. I don’t know where to go on here yet but I was advised this is the place to start right here so I’ll Wait to see what happens next as I explore the forum. 👍

I have been single by choice for over 15 years so I will not be needing to hide anything but I can totally see it with others I show these lasers to that want one and the wifey is usually not real supportive but they just don’t get us big kids I guess. Thanks for your reply and I appreciate all of you

Thank you very much,and I am very guilty of not wearing eye protection at all when I use these lasers and they are powerful lasers I will admit I can feel it affecting my eyes but the main reason I do not wear them is because the ones that come with these lasers I have purchased in the past are hideous and I just stay away from them. I have been meaning to ask my friend At Sanwu If he can provide me with some options to choose from or advise me where I can purchase some nice glasses at. The eyes are priceless and I need to be taken better care of them so maybe you could help as well direct me to a selection.

I would highly recommend Survival Lasers "Eagle Pair" safety glasses/goggles for quality safety eyewear at reasonable prices.

BTW, Gary, the owner of Survival Lasers is a member here at LPF (Garoq), additionally there is a 10% discount code for LPF members LPF445.
