    Default Where to buy a Laser Module

    I have been looking into buying a single laser module on ebay.
    Where could I buy one here in the UK?
    Something Green around 1 watts power.

    I have a nice laser table with a pair of 20'000k galvos sitting on it but no Laser.
    My Son brought it off ebay.

    I have terrible worries about buying one from China on ebay.
    Usual worries. Spend 1000 for one and it never turns up. or when it does turn up you get a 50mw candle.
    Its alittle far to go and chase it up if its no good.

    The very best advice I could give you is to contact Rob (Stanwax) on this forum. He is the UK agent for Laserwave lasers.

    Bridge (of Laserwave) is a well respected member of this forum and they make good reliable lasers at a decent price. If you have any problems (unlikely) with a Laserwave laser either Rob or Bridge will see you get it sorted out quickly and efficiently.

    Regards

    Thanks for the Kudos chaps.
    As the boys state I am the UK Agent for Laser-Wave and we can supply you with whatever you need in green up to 2W currently. The products are getting a reputaion for quality and Bridges aim is to rise to be considered the best from China. All the lasers are very generous in power for example I took a delivery today of a number of modules and there is a 300mW green in there doing a cool 480mW stable after warm up.
    Most of all we will be here to support you if you have a problem.
    Drop me a PM or an email from the site www.laser-wave.co.uk if you want any info.

    How much do they go for the 300's that you mention? because maybe a 500mw would do me if there the efficient.

    If you are going to go chinese i have heard nothing but rave reviews about CNI but they are not too cheap guy, CNI has a live chat and will talk you up during whatever normal business hours are.
    clicking on my avatar will show the tricolor photocoagulator resonator cavity from a Lumenis Varia eye surgery medical laser, which i am attempting to refit. It originally was designed to produce 50-1500mw of 532 / 50-600mw of 659nm / 50-600mw of 561nm (Yellow)
    Clicking on my Avatar will show a picture of the inside of this cavity with a 1cm bar diode in the first of 3 OEM postions & KTP holder.
