    Well it wouldn't be a white light head being that its argon only. So you would just get the typical argon lines (Blue, green). But alot of it! You probably wouldn't get 8 watts either. 2 or 3 if it were a white light, maybe 6 or so as an argon only. Nice looking unit, and its a lexel which is a plus... But you'll need 3 phase for it, you can get away with running it on a rotary phase converter, but they are loud and bulky. If you're planning on using it for just beams, i wouldn't worry to much with a pcaom, just get a set of slow scanners and build a color box with 2 gm-20's and use mechanical flag blanking, that way you get the most possible output and will have some color control for your beams. Great price for it, if it works!

    I wouldnt buy it unless they will warrenty it against doa. Its all the same, "pulled from working environment, college surplus, expired working medical equipment" Most people have access to 220v 3 phase power if it means the difference between selling an item for $200 compared to $2500 +

    Lexel 95s are nice, havelocked has 5 or 6 of em. I myself prefer the lexel 88 since I get a good 2 watts out of a single phase laser.

    I also have a Lexel 95 but no 3 phase power to run it. I need to replace the single line tuning prism mount for a fixed multi-line HR mount to make it lightshow ready.

    I can sell you a mount, they cost 30$ and shipping, assuming 95 scientific head. Others available on request.

    1100 is 1/4 life, so it should be still good if gas intact, heck offer him 500, the supply is almost worth that. I can light that tube from single phase, a hgm5 supply will light that tube.
