    Default Old Soviet He-Cd

    Title pretty much says it all. This is a 1978 model LG-63 He-Cd laser head just added to the collection as #300. It's tube is broken, and as far as I can tell it's missing a central tube support, the high reflector mirror, and its feet. The tube is symmetrical, unlike all the western he-cd lasers I've seen. Looks like it's time for some homework.

    I love HeCd tubes. They look like evil genius lab glass.
