I'm in need of an LPM and I am looking for heads like the 20C-A-1-Y to hopefully build one or if someone has an Ophir based LPM that would be awesome.
Hi,I think the one that was for sale in the BST is now sold, it was a very nice unit sold by Brendon and originally made by member "Offroadfreak".
For Sale Ophir 20C-A-1-Y Laser Power Meter Includes everything you see above. Can read from 1mW to 5000mW standalone or with datalogging via the laserbee software (included). Can read over 15000mW if you install a heatsink (cost's less than $10). Response time 0-95% 1 second faster than...laserpointerforums.com
There are a couple of Ophir 20C-A-1-Y heads for sale on ebay, but they're expensive, one is going for $449, and the other is sky high at $700.
He wanted $500 the day of the listing but quickly lowered the asking price to $400. He sold it for $400 or $450 as soon as I made him an offerOh, I didn't know that one got sold. Do you know if he got his asking price? It seemed high to me for a used LPM. Looked like he was trying to get all the money he paid for it back out.
Okay. I see he got $400 for it. That was $100 less than he was looking for.
He repossesses them into Ophir LaserBees from what I can gather. He is not willing to do any deal of the sort unfortunately.Also I know Jerry (Laserbee) usually snatches up any Ophir heads that come for sale on the forum. I sold him the one I bought before I got the LPM for $300. I'm not sure what he does with them but he might be willing to sell one to you (just the head) for $300-$400.
Thank you Lifetime but I am well aware of LaserBee at this point. The thermopile is just a bit too slow for me.Hi, Check out LaserbeeView attachment 67047 There are many affordable LPM's and his thermopiles are awesome, quick response time great product. I have 4 or 5 from him and 2 from Tom Nospin one in blue and one in red digital readouts.
Jerry's is the way to go. And they are precalibrated and ready to use out of the box.
I remember this happening at the time. One person was selling these quite inexpensively and soon they were all bought out. Then others came along offering them at much higher prices. Should have just purchased one back when they were quite cheap, but I wasn't into lasers as much as I became later.Another possible option is that several members, including me, bought Kenometers a few years ago. They have the same Ophir head on them and most were priced less than the head is going for now. You might find someone willing to part with theirs (but not me)
At the time, the heads were available from an alternate source for a lot less and most were bought up to use with the production of the Kenometers.
I have no clue what to make of this post?? Is it a dig to Jerry??He repossesses them into underspec, and very pricey non-negotiable Ophir LaserBees from what I can gather. He is not willing to do any deal of the sort...from what I can gather. That route is dead.
Thank you Lifetime but I am well aware of LaserBee at this point. The thermopile is too slow for me.
