    Laser Warning High power green laser

    Looking for a 1W-3W 520nm diode or 532nm dpss laser suitable for integration into a show projector I will be building at some point. I'm on a rather modest budget so in particular second hand offers would be preferred, but I will consider new offers if the price is right. Laser must come with suitable driver for show use. Send me a PM with hours used + power output and let me know your offer.I am in the UK so sellers from Europe will be preferred, please add shipping into your overall cost.Regards

    In the new year I may well be switching out a pair of Laserwave 2W OEM-V-SS 532nm heads. They're very small with no fan and must be heat sinked.
    I've owned them about 3 years. 1 went back to Laserwave after about 18 months as it had lost power and was repaired at my cost.
    I suspect both are doing under 2W now, but I'd need to measure them and check.

    Probably between 75-125 hours use each.

    I can let you know if and when they become available if you like, I'm in the UK

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    go diode. cheaper and better modulation. You can get 2W easy with a single pbs cube. If its beams knife edge.

    That all depends on how much he's paying for the DPSS. The 'modest budget' is significant I expect.
    Even building yourself, a 2W DI module is going to cost you $360 in diodes, ~$150 for collimation, PBS, waveplate and correction, plus whatever metalwork and tooling might be required, and a driver. It's a $600 build by my reckoning

    My budget isn't really fixed (hence why I'm not specifying it), but I'm well aware of the new/used values of these lasers. I would overall prefer a single (or pair of - gives me the option of 2 projectors or one really powerful one), much more powerful, used DPSS cheaply over a new diode build at this stage. Bear in mind I'm a hobbyist, I don't do this professionally (yet).

    Say Norty...

    If no one has claimed those DPSS units of yours, please shoot me a PM. I know someone who may be interested, and for his application the modulation isn't an issue. (Will be run continuously.)

    I may (will probably) end up claiming them some time this month when he has them available. They're the sort of thing I was looking for.

    Thanks all for your PMs. I should have responded to everybody by now. Feel free to still send me offers.
