    Laser Warning Spectra Physics 168 Tube: Any Condition

    Hi all,
    I'm after a Spectra Physics 168 tube, but will also consider 171 tube (might be a bit too long!), in any condition, but highly preferable it's not at air. Either Ar, Kr or a combo of the two!

    Does anyone have one they were going to throw out going very cheap? It's not going to lase unfortunately, it's for another project.

    Obviously UK would be preferred due to postage costs, but if anyone else has one and would help ship it to me, I'm all ears.

    Thanks!
    Dan

    What part of it do you REALLY want, something simple like the Brewsters, fill system or glass to metal seals? Or is this decretive?

    Something simple, sealed glass. Any fixings that don't need to be on there can be stripped away.
    The plan is to mount it to a nice long piece of teak, oak, or something with a nice grain, and have a small EHT supply built in to excite the gas in the tube; for display.
