    Question

    Steve. Did you try to use the husk of that aixiz 532 I sent you? The model that most of us here have killed... It has optics in it, right?
    Love, peace, and grease,

    Nothing much really- I dont expect an arm an a leg for these things since I got them for next to nothing, I would let these go if you wanted to swap out for the lp'd diodes, maybe you have a couple of housings laying around or something? Basically Im a pack rat- I collect everything, you never know eh!

    Shoot me an offer you think is fair

    Aaron- I waz kinda planning on trying to resurrect that aixiz. It's not a bad little laser- If I can find the correct wattage 808 C-mount diode.. I dont know what it's supposed to take.
    Zane- I'll look around.. what is lp'd ? Actually, this isnt as important as it was when I first posted this thread a month ago.. I got other stuff going on now that's taking up most of the spare time..you know how it goes in the laser-multiple-projects-world ..heh..
    Thanx,
    Steve

    lp'd= low powered (you stated you had some low powered diodes, I was being lazy in my typing )

    No rush though- Im sure Ill have plenty on hand if you ever need them.

    Regards
