    You should see the box they give you when you put in a $10k order

    Thorlabs is the toys-r-us of optics the photonics industry, just replace the Geoffrey with the green dino and cents with dollars. Its a shame they don't have a retail outlet you can walk into and play with all of their stuff

    Some of us get bruschetta when we order.

    Usually they have the best prices and the best stock.

    My second choice, these guys, if they would just have include some chocolate ...

    Perhaps thats just the UK lot ?

    I've ordered things from them before and had all manner of cockups and stupidity go on..

    Perhaps the most gutting was the order I made only to get a phone call that "we don't stock that anymore"..

    Despite that, the optical breadboard I bought from them is awsome.. expensive yes! (prolly costs a lot to drill and tap all those holes so precisely) great quality, and weighs a ton (just how I like em!) (Optical BB's that is..)

    Let the US operation know the UK bunch has "issues", they are very responsive to things like that.
