Hello my dear laser friends  ;)

My name is Ferry, living in the north-west of the netherlands.
Some 20 years ago i saw a laser system which i couldn't buy, untill a week ago.

I saw a add on a local marketplace for a Datronik club laser.
Realy got it for under 200$ and it supposed to be broken.

Well now, i reconnected all wires and it works...
It has a 40 mW HeNe and a 400 mW Argon laser....

I include some pictures (not Hi Q)

Next week i pick up a PCAOM driver and some Cambridge scanners.

Also i thank James for building me a nice DAC set  :P

I'd add to that Skype is pretty awesome!

We had a very nice conversation.

He's got about $100K dollars of 1988 laser equipment there.

Apparently he's also very fortunate to live where 220V single phase AC requires no special house wiring.

The only problem is that all of it is bound together as one single unit that is fairly large and probably about 150 lbs.

Check it out! He's got a whole row of actuators with color filters and mirrors, two overlapping lumia wheels, diffraction gratings, a dual motor Spirograph thingy and a whole bunch of MM1s with mirrors to bounce the pick-off beams into the effects optics.

Have you shined your laser through any of your diffraction gratings?

James.  :)

He hates YOU because you got dream-come-true laser system for almost nothing.

I don't hate anyone.

BTW I forgot to say....

i hate you

You must understand BlinkenLights is a real trouble maker. He gives everyone here a hard time. That's about the only reason he ever posts anything. He's a doosh! (His spelling. Not mine.) He's also the guy who set-up the forum and he and I are the admins.

If you ever meet him, get in line to kick his ass.

James.  :)

Hello and welcome!  nice system you have picked up there, its main capability is somewhat removed from what we see in those laserforum animations.  Laserforum makes some great stuff with the Lasergraph DSP, take some pics when you meet, I'd like to see the group myself :)

Plus this guy is really cool too. I've had fun getting to know him on Skype.

He knows what he is doing and there is a good reason why he got this amazing projector.
