    Laser Friends,

    I did some digging. Heres a YouTube video from DZ (posted years back) showing the effect of the lumia pattern glass that I use. All credits to David on this. I hope my posting this is ok. Thx David!

    Hi Greg,

    I'm very much interested in buying torture tubes and lumia wheels, both alone and with mounted motors. I can't wait to build a few after seeing Lasing Nang Talung.

    If you could provide any insight in how the tubes or discs are made that would be fantastic. I have been visiting a commercial glass studio lately and have access to a variety of tools, kilns, and torches.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Default Lumia disks coming soon from MondoDyne Photonics

    I'm Mike Gould, the creator of Lasing Nang Talung; I am incredibly glad you found inspiration there.

    I am in the process of gearing up a small company that will sell Hereditary-style Wobbulators and lumia disks.
    I am creating these at the the photonics facility here at St. Wilfred's Lumentic Institute.
    I will have the website up shortly and will post that here.

    Shoot me a PM about torture tubes, I can probably get one to you.

    Thanks for watching...Mike

    Pricing will be affordable, as I never did these to make a bunch of coin. What really adds to the cost will be the slow rotation motors if anyone wants a complete 12vdc plug n play solution from me.

    Please let me know if there is still enough demand out there to warrant my setting my rig up again. Spares may be a good idea, as I prefer to work wth glass usually. Fragile, but the effects are sweet.

    By the way, you can cut tempered glass - if you have a glass saw. Im not using any tempered glass in my wheels, but it may be worth looking at this again, as I can cut it.

    Please let me know if you are interested. Ill post some anticipated prices soon.

    Thanks,
    Greg
    i have been away for a while but am accumulating lumia material put me down as interested

    I loved the torture tubes and the interactions with the beam passing through both sides of the tubes. Then move the Y axis ever so slightly and the patterns would not repeat. Lower the voltage to a stop and then reverse it, and hear the occasional whispered wow from the audience.

    HI folks;

    I will be bringing my lumia rig to SELEM this year, along with Wobbulators, discs, T-tubes, and motors for sale.

    Hope to see you there!

    Be sure to check out the Wobbulator training video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLzEkeQGJaA

    Default Displaser Lumia, Torture Tube & 3D Group Buy - Prices

    Friends,

    After acquiring quite a bit of the proper glass and other parts, Id like to offer up a Group Buy on the lumia wheels, as its easier for me to make these in a couple of passes rather than just one or two. These are the exact same lumia wheels that many on the forum received from me before.

    Ill make a 4 glass lumia wheel, epoxied to an aluminum hub with set screw (6mm gear motor shaft) for $38 each shipped in the US wherever the small box flat-rate USPS Priority applies (at the current $7.90 price, barring any USPS price increase). Ill include a torture tube and a 3D plastic sheet (you cut your own 3D wheel) for everyone that orders a lumia wheel as part of a group buy in June 2019. This DOES NOT include a gear motor or mounting bracket - theres no reason for me to reship what you can buy on Amazon or Servocity for another $20-$30. Any gear motor of your preferred speed (1-2rpm) with a 6mm shaft will work.

    This is a 4 ground glass wheel (no sharp edges) etched, epoxied and centered on spun aluminum mounting hub, Masonite and bubble wrapped to protect everything, shipped in the Continental US. If you want more than one, are outside of the US or want something slightly different, we can work it out - please let me know.

    I dont know that Ill be at SELEM this year, so this is my best time to get a wheel to you if you are interested. Please PM me if you want one and Ill send the PAYPAL details in my reply.

    Thanks,
    Greg
