    Default Laser "Oh Shit Kit"- What is in yours?

    I mentioned something about my laser oh shit kit in the SELEM lumia thread and others thought it was a good idea. I didn't want to get a lumia thread off topic so a new thread is born.

    So I thought I would ask what is in your laser "Oh Shit Kit"?

    Mine changes depending on where I am going but in general:
    -Multi-Meter
    -Zip-Ties
    -Tape: Metal Foil, Gaffers, electrical
    -Laser Power Meter
    -Electrical outlet tester
    -Random wire
    -Snacks
    -Epoxy
    -moldable epoxy (magnum steel)
    -plug strips
    -extra mirrors (di-electric)
    -screws
    -tools: screw driver set, adjustable wrench, wire strippers
    -laserbugs
    -laser drivers
    -Fuses, circuit breakers
    -Rubber O-rings for hoses (from the argon days)
    -disposable shower caps + rubber bands
    -spare drive sleds just in case
    -Sterile swabs
    -Remacid (thanks 300evil)
    -Laserium glasses, and spare lumia wheels.
    -misc

    My 'kit' which is still a mess from NWLEM normally it looks nicer:

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    I think that is what you would hear if you tried going through Customs with that !
    Might just end up with your name on one of those "Government lists" when they open it up !

    No self respecting laser (or lighting) guy should be using DUCTTAPE. You Should be using Gaffers Tape!

    I reckon Dimitri (Hobbybob) and Rob (Stanwax) should win the awards for this. The amount of 'just in case' gear they bring to LEM's in the UK is staggering

    If you're working on ions, a "lil' bitty" transistor tester (Tip courtesy of Steve)
