    Heya Liteglow:

    If you think shipping and customs are bad for a small dpss laser to norway...

    Imagine a 400 Lb (give or take) Laserscope 532 unit.

    I sware they cut the chassis out of decomissioned tank hulls. Real heavy stuff.

    Yeah... and they have the gall to call YAG's "portable" and use words like
    "convenient"... We're doing a show in January which uses 4 - 40 watts
    and I'm dreading having to move those... my back is twinging as I type.

    Anybody remember those 20W units that L.M.R. took photos of in China
    a year or so back? I'm really curious to know how much those run...
    Those were cute and lunchbox sized.

The whole assembly is built on a large metal plate that is cooled with a huge TEC.

    Nect time I have one of these out, I'll try to get better pictures of the YAG assembly.

    Would be cool to see some pictures! Im interested to see how snug the fit is between the rod and the copper mount. Is it something that could be achived by the home constructor do you think?
