    Here's one that's really, really old. This RCA type TA2628R GaAs laser was made in February of 1969 according to the data sheet in the box. Looking through old publications, I found the "new product introduction" for it in The Laser Newsletter of December 1966, and the ad below in Laser Focus the...

    +1 from me, Hank! On FB, I'm only connected to fellow laserists and laserist groups, so I avoid family / other folks that use FB to reveal their darker views. As for Pangolin, I've only seen them be extremely generous to the SELEM crowd and to me personally over many years. (Kudos to...

    I understand. For those who publish shows on forums/youtube/facebook, it makes sense to have the highest quality to add validity to a new product. For my living room laser show, that's the equivalent of using a Ferrari to pick up the groceries! My projectors are all single-mode 250mW...

    Nice work, PJ! I'm plugging away at it, I swear! :) I think I'm a week away from completing this two Saturn build. Things are obviously a bit messy at the current state. For those of you that I haven't told, this build is essentially half of this 4 Saturn single-mode build. So that's...
