    Default Laser Safety equipment

    Hi folks,

    We're all probably guilty of taking chances with lasers at one time or another, including me.
    As a safety reference on where you mght buy Laser eye protection try this site for starters.
    See " http://www.kentek.com/category.aspx?categoryID=44 "

    Have fun and play safe.

    It's one thing to own protective eyewear.... it's another thing to actually use it properly...

    I've learnt the hard way - first while aligning up our argon projector for the first time - had the goggles sitting atop of my head (a lot of use up there...), and copped a stray reflection from one of the galvo mirrors - tube was running at low current - but enough to leave me with a spot for a few weeks....

    Second time was aligning the 600mw arctos with our argon... that was running at full power.... again a spot for a few weeks...

    I still see the spots quickly here and there, especially if i move my eyes quickly around...

    I have a pair of Spectronica safety goggles that allow you to align things properly yet still protect your eyes. I've had several occasions to quickly avert stray beams. I hate getting hit by a spotlight at a concert once you have dark adjusted pupils let alone a laser beam.

    Play safe
