    After lots of digging, I've found a document that covers the programming of another Technifor unit; I tried some of the commands and have managed to get responses from the unit. So I now have some idea of the commands, but no clue as to whether this is proprietary or a standard; I've put one of the...

    ~ NO, I have a house crammed with gear... Someday I should just invite SELEMers to a private if you see it, grab it, session. Then I would have a nice empty house. Been collecting since I was 12, and Eidetic's room is NEAT and Organized compared to mine. Did I mention the Amish made Mini...

    I've used them for a day or so in the past, and worked on the RF, but I've never owned one.. I've been offered dead ones and nearly bought ones modified for 3.39 with large bores, but never owned a working one. Teach with it, about Doppler velocity measurements and light scattering from polymers...

    If the Holo guys don't grab it, it would go to an undergrad teaching lab here, and lase the orange lines it never dreamed of lasing in its spare time. I have friends there who know how to handle it and can pick it up. Then I can go get it. Steve

    Looks like it may be going to Holography Studios in NYC, to live again. Thanks for the responses! I hate to see old lasers in the dumpster.

    I was just contacted by a guy in Livingston, NJ offering me an operational SP-125 system free for the hauling. I have four. It will go to the dump next week if a new home isn't found. If anyone here wants it, let me know and I'll forward his contact info.

    You'll always get a little residual voltage on the pins, if its only a few hundred mA then you're not getting any output from your DAC. If it was doing 'something' you'd be getting a very definite reading (at least a solid 1V), depending on the frame you're using. Pins 4 and 17 are the ILDA...

    From a DIY point of view nothing interesting has been happening lately. When I first got into this, prices were dropping rapidly on galvos and new laser diodes made it affordable to build your own stuff. Even before that Norm and Chan (Elm) were doing some really cool stuff that lead people here. ...

    It seems like there are way more people interested in laser display now that projectors are very inexpensive, but fewer daily posts here on the PL, and dare I say it; they're not quite as interesting as they were 13 years ago. What's up with that?

    That's a Coherent 90-MK medical sled, not an I90K.. Its been out of service two or three years, so the tube pressure is up through the roof from continuous, designed in, leakage from the fill reservoir valves.. It will possibly start but barely lase. Why suffer for ~700-1000 mW of two line red...

    Hi norty! thanks for your reply! I got my multi meter but didn't have any push pins and the only thing I had to hand that may have worked were staples! anyway I checked the pins 5, 6, 7 with pin 25 and after wiggling the staples a bit I was able to get a readout but a lot less! the average was 0.25...

    First thing I'd do is establish what part might be at fault. You can test whether you're getting any output from the DAC by getting a multimeter on the colour pins and measuring DC volts. I have a DB25 socket wired up with tails, but you can also just put push pins into the ILDA outlet and...
