    Default CLOSING DOWN SALE: The Geek Group laser lab

    I just thought i'd post here that the National Science Institute, previously known as The Geek Group is closing down and having a big 'going out of business' sale at the moment.
    This includes their Laser Lab.
    It's all cash only sales (no shipping). Ya have to turn up.
    No idea how much stuff is left but someone said today that a 3 phase laser is still there.
    I'm not associated with them, I just watch some of their videos on youtube.

    Anyway, might be worth a look if you're in the area.

    They are in
    902 Leonard St NW. Grand Rapids MI 49504

    At 9 Min 6 Sec of this video there's a short bit where you can see two lasers in the mess.

    The one I noticed on the table appears to be a Coherent I70 of some sort. Can't see it well enough to tell what model specifically. Hmmm 7 hour drive. To rescue another I70. Can never have too many.

    The other one looks like a Enterprise II housing.

    They have a massive building full of other stuff too, not just the laser lab.
    High voltage lab, lots of NSTs and huge AC capacitors (the kind that breaks all your windows if you short it out), i think they have pole pigs for sale too, but you have to prove you're not a moron and know what you're doing to get one.

    I've been in contact with then. Just as an FYI, their hours are:

    Mon-Fri 12-6
    Sat 10-5

    Not sure if it's a one week deal or not.

    Unfortunately, something else has come up this weekend, so I dont think a road trip is in store for me.

    They are now opening up the entire lab to sell everything before the building itself is sold.
    Lots of cool stuff that has to go within 2 weeks.
    Check it out!
