    Introduction

    Sam (yes, that's me, Silicon Sam or Laser Sam, take your pick!) has a variety of parts, equipment, and other stuff that have been accumulated over the years as well as new/surplus items I have acquired in my search for the most interesting devices to test and document for the FAQs. These are almost exclusively for Sam's Laser FAQ including lasers and laser components, optics, laser and optical instruments, and vacuum related items. But there are electronic items and simply strange (and in some cases unidentified) items as well. This is what's in my back room, attic, basement, under the couches and beds, and generally hidden wherever possible. Please support the FAQs by helping me get these neat items back in use and out of my house! :)

    This list is constantly evolving (even if the revision number doesn't change!) and will continue to do so forever, so check back frequently or risk missing out on what you always dreamed of owning! :)

    I am also looking for a variety of items including (of course) lasers of all kinds and high vacuum equipment and accessories. See the "Wanted to Acquire" section at the end of this page.

    I may be contacted directly via the Sci.Electronics.Repair FAQ Email Links Page. Use the "Feedback" button on that page to Sam Goldwasser, any subject heading. Thanks.

    Note: Although this page may be resident at some of my mirror sites, the only official version is at: http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/sale/.

    Questions and Ordering

    I don't have a fancy shopping cart and checkout procedure that doesn't work though Filip has been threatening to set something up :) so please contact me initially via the Sci.Electronics.Repair FAQ

    or through the Sci.Electronics.Repair FAQ Email Links Page which ends up at the same place.

    Subsequent communication will be using direct email so you MUST provide a valid email address on the Feedback form. Please double check it! We will never give out your email address to anyone. DON'T use "anonymous" if you expect a reply and make sure it's addressed to: Samuel Goldwasser. I can't read minds and my crystal ball is still out for repairs! :-)

    Be sure to include the item number(s) you're interested in and any questions you have about them. If you're serious about ordering, include your zipcode so I can figure the shipping cost. I will usually reply within 12 hours, usually quicker during the day (despite what it says about up to a week on the Feedback Form page, unless it's addressed to the wrong recipient!).

    Lasers and Optics

    Helium-Neon Lasers

    Note: All output powers are actual measured values after about a 10 minute warmup, not CDRH safety ratings which may be much higher and totally impossible to achieve under any conditions. Wavelength is 632.8 nm (normal orange-red), and the beam is randomly polarized TEM00 (single transverse mode) with normal divergence (1 to 2 mR), unless otherwise noted. The listings are very roughly ordered from low to high power.

    For HeNe laser heads and tubes at rock bottom prices, see the various "homeless" specials below. I do have other HeNe lasers, tubes, and heads avaialble. So, if there is something you'd like that's not listed, feel free to contact me via the email link at the top of this page.

    Complete HeNe Lasers

    These include self-contained lasers as well as laser head/power supply combinations. Also see "HeNe Laser Kits", below, for some low voltage DC powered HeNe lasers. Note: For AC power supply bricks, a fast blow 1 amp fuse is required for safety since there is no way to know if there is an internal fuse. Add $5.00 to any of the AC input laser heads/power supply brick combinations and I will include a fuse and line cord. Green and yellow HeNe lasers listed after red ones.

    Red (632.8 nm):

    These are arranged roughly by increasing output power.

                   TEM01* or something like that, a doughnut
                   with a dot in the middle.  A bit heavy for
                   a laser pointer but very interesting. :)

                   20-22 mW, very good cosmetic condition.
                   Power meter not included!  The output power
                   is a bit below spec (25 mW) but tube color
                   is perfect so a proper cleaning and alignment
                   will almost certainly get back to new specs.
    
     HENEMG927-1  Melles Griot 05-LHP-927 linearly polarized HeNe   1   $ 1,500.00
                   laser head with matching laboratory-style power
                   supply.  Very good condition outputting more
                   than 35 mW with a very clean stable beam.  A
                   great holography laser.  This is a cylindrical
                   laser head.
    
     HENEMG928-1  Melles Griot 05-LHP-928 linearly polarized HeNe   1   $ 1,750.00

                   supply.  Very good condition outputting more
                   than 35 mW with a very clean stable beam.  A
                   great holography laser.  This is the rectangular
                   laser head.  Excellent like new condition.
    
     HENEMG928-2  Similar to above, case has a few dings that       1   $ 1,700.00
                   don't affect anything.
    
     HENESP120-1  Spectra-Physics 120 laser head with matching      1   $ 1,500.00
                   SP-256 exciter in near mint condition.         Pic
                   Instant start, over 8 mW after short
                   warmup.  Has the original tube which as
                   far as I can tell must be optically contacted
                   or a very lucky sealing job because it does
                   not degrade on the shelf.  Nice large shiny

    Stabilized HeNe Lasers and Accessories

    For the commercial stabilized lasers and conponents, all serious offers will be considered, but I won't be selling them for 10 percent of what I'm asking. :)

    If you don't see the laser you'r looking for, I may be able to suggest an altnernative or build or modify one custom.

    Kits for home-built stabilized HeNe lasers may be found under HeNe Laser Kits (Includes Stabilized and Zeeman).

    Metrology HeNe Lasers and Accessories

    These are mostly from HP/Agilent and Zygo. Lasers that meet manufacturer specifications come with a minimum of a 90 day (3 month) warranty as noted. This warranty can usually be extended to 180 days (6 months) for an additional 10 percent of the laser's purchase price. All others have at least a 10 day DOA warranty. Feel free to make reasonable offers. Trades (in addition to those listed below) of lasers, electronics, or optics, may be considered to reduce the price. I will also test, adjust, and repair these lasers and am set up to do quantity testing for eBay (or other) sellers with flat fee, consignment, or other arrangments including service warranties. Contact me for details. Discounts available.

    In addition to their intended metrology applications, these lasers can be ideal as laboratory stabilized HeNe lasers and optical frequency/wavelength reference lasers.

    HP/Agilent Metrology HeNe Lasers and Accessories

    Unless otherwise noted, all of these lasers and laser tubes meet HP/Agilent specifications and are in excellent functional condition and very good to excellent cosmetic condition. Several are like new an would be entirely suitable for use in a production environment. However, unless otherwise noted, some have seen significant use and would only be recommended for applications where the laser is turned on only when required or for testing, demonstration, education, and research. Most of these have at least a 90 day warranty, and I certainly don't expect them to drop dead at 91 days! :) But their useful life could be measured in many years if only turned on when needed. For most applications, there is no real benefit to leaving lasers like this on continuously if not being used even if the rest of the tool remains powered. Contact me for more specific suggestions on maximizing the life of HP/Agilent metrology lasers.

    Some of these lasers may also be available for rental on a monthly basis with option to buy.

    Notes:

    1. A trade-in allowance is available for most 5517/5518/5519 lasers (even if the model being traded isn't the same as the one you will be buying). The amount depends on model, year, and condition. The most is generally paid for *Agilent* 5517B/BL/C/CL/D/DL lasers (2004 or later), or any 5517E/EL/F/FL/G/GL. Agilent lasers with manufacturing dates later than 2010 may also have a higher trade-in value.

    2. There may be other HP/Agilent lasers available. And in particular, some of the 5517Cs may be adjusted to meet 5517B specs upon request (REF of 1.9-2.4 MHz) with similar or slightly higher output power, or modifying 5517Bs to meet 5501B F1/F2 and REF specs. See the section: Metrology Laser Service for options.

    3. Unless otherwise noted, all HP/Agilent lasers have 6 mm beam optics. 3 mm or 9 mm optics may be available.

    4. For hobbyists and experiments salivating over the opportunity to play with these sorts of systems, it may be possible to put together relatively low cost systems that would be fully functional but not meet commercial requirements.

    5. Since HP/Agilent and Zygo interferometer optics are often the same, see the Zygo Metrology Lasers and Accessories section for optics as well if you are interested in optics.

    6. The Excel 1001A, 1001B, and 1001F are functional clones of the HP/Agilent 5501B, 5517A, and 5517B, respectively (more or less). However, since the REF freuqency of Excel lasers isn't specified more narrowly than 1.5 to 3.0 MHz, it's not really possible to be certain that any given 1001 laser will be suitable as an HP/Agilent replacement. See the section: Excel Metrology HeNe Lasers and Accessories for possibilities. For a given output power, Excel lasers may be slightly less expensive.

    7. Rather than trying to select among the various lasers listed below, it may be better to contact me with your requirements. :-)

    8. I can also build or modify to order almost any 5517 laser for which a suitable tube is available, either one listed below or provided by the customer. This can include specific REF frequency, beam diameter, and case style. Even Agilent would not be able to tell that it is not original from the outside!

                   tested it in 2012.  At the time, it was
                   believed to have never been used and it did
                   535 uW and 2.36 MHz.  So, the values have
                   changed little.  There has been some use but
                   probably not much.  I will REF reduce to

                   comes on instantly. :) :)  3 month
                   warranty.  This would be suitable for
                   emergencies where "anything with a beam
                   (eventually)" is acceptable. :)  (OK,
                   perhaps not really acute emergencies!)
                   But if you're going to turn on the tool
                   and let it run 24/7, this would be fine.
                   FWIW, a similar laser lasted 3 years in
                   on/off service, probably equivalent to
                   around 6 months 24/7.

                   READ: Adjustments may include starter helper, ballast
                   augmentation, and REF modification.  These do NOT represent

                   serve as research, experimenter, or hobbyist interferometer
                   lasers.  6 mm beam diameter unless noted, can convert to 3
                   or 9 mm at modest cost.  These lasers will probably run for

                   5517 laser with specific REF frequency, beam
                   diameter, and case style.  This may use either
                   a laser listed here (or another one I have) or
                   modification of a customer-supplied laser.
                   Despite the large number of option suffixes,
                   most 5517 lasers only differ in the REF
                   frequency, beam diameter, and case style.

     HP-5501B-WT  Weak tube assemblies from HP-5501B lasers.        1     $ 125.00
                   These include the glass laser tube
                   in Zeeman magnet, beam expander, and waveplates.
                   The output power at the point where locking
                   would occur is between 100 and 150 uW.  This is
                   slightly outside  HP specs but certainly usable.
                   Requires 4 to 4.5 mA at around 1,600 V.
                   Great for doing your own axial Zeeman HeNe
                   experiments or measuring the dimensions of
                   bacteria (with just a few additions). :)

                   The DC power supplies (non-removable) may be
                   useful for HP/Agilent lasers but that's about
                   it.  There aren't even any decent lights or
                   switches! :)  But they definitely make good
                   boat anchors.
    
                   The KO-59995A has probably been replaced with
                   a single chip using modern technology.  Make

    HeNe Laser Kits (Includes Stabilized and Zeeman)

    The following are sets of parts that can be used to construct HeNe lasers of various types for experimental and educational purposes. These include common random or linearly polarized (unstabilized) HeNe lasers, frequency and/or intensity stabilized HeNe lasers and axial Zeeman (two-frequency) HeNe lasers. Basic shop and soldering skills may be needed for some of the kits. Also see "Complete HeNe Lasers", above.

    (The kits for Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers (SFPIs) used to view the longitudinal modes of HeNe (and other) lasers have moved to their own section: Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers Kits.)

                   matching power supply brick attached to
                   ballast resistor and mounting brackets.
                   Input requirements: 21 to 31 VDC at 0.5 A
                   (power adapter NOT included, readily

                   transformer that produces 700 VAC.  Note that this
                   kit requires an external source of 12 to 15 VDC
                   (at low current) to run the laser which can
                   then be turned on and off with a TTL signal.
                   Makes a nice "everything visible" demo HeNe
                   laser.  Hookup instructions will be included.
                   With the addition of a diode and capacitor,
                   the power transformer in the "A" versions can
                   provide the 12 to 15 VDC, and can be used for
                   other low voltage circuitry.

                   mechanical and electronic skills are required
                   to complete the laser.  A rudimentary

                   of the main beam for feedback.  Inquire for
                   details.  Note that HENESTAB1 is a subset
                   of ZEEMAN-A1.  However, a tube that's good
                   for 1 or 2 mode stabilization may not be
                   good for axial Zeeman and vice-versa.

    Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers Kits

    These are sets of parts including mirrors to construct Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers (SFPIs) to display the longitudinal modes various lasers. Most are optimal for red (633 nm) HeNe lasers but should will work over a range of wavelengths from below 595 nm to above 650 nm. An SFPI with performance comparable to that of a commercial instrument can be constructed for a small fraction of the cost of even a used one. There's also the satisfaction of being able to build a device with a resolution of a few fm (femtometers).

    The most inexpensive kits consist of mirrors, a PZT, and photodiode, and require total fabrication of the mechanical assembly (or its construction using other available components). More complete kits include Thorlabls mechanical "cage" parts that provide the basic structure with varying amounts of flexibility in cavity length and alignment. These can be used to implement confocal, hemispherical confocal, selectable FSR, and planar SFPIs (though the latter is probably not recommended except for the particularly masochistically inclined). Some basic mechanical, electrical, and optical skills - and time and effort - will be required either way.

    If you are interested in some peculiar configuration that isn't here (or isn't obvious), ask.

    Where what you are really interested in is a commercial instrument, go to Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers/Laser Spectrum Analyzers.

     HENESFPI1    Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometer Kit 1         -    $  50.00
                   This kit consists of a pair of mirrors,       SFPI 1 Kit Parts
                   with an RoC of 43 mm, 7-8 mm diameter)        Typical Scan
                   to construct a confocal cavity with an FSR
                   of 1.75 GHz, an Si PD, and a piezo element
                   with a hole drilled through its center.
                   Some mechanical skills and assorted readily
                   available materials will be required to
                   construct the SFPI, which will enable
                   the longitudinal modes of most TEM00
                   red HeNe lasers to be displayed in real
                   time.  A function generator may be used
                   as a driver, or one can easily be built.
                   An oscilloscope (almost any type) or
                   data acquisition system (not included)
                   will be required for the display.  See the
                   sections of Sam's Laser FAQ starting with
                   Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers.
                   for more details.  Mirrors are also
                   available individually.  See HENEMIR-S1
                   under HeNe Laser Optics.
                   The photo of the scan is actually using the
                   HENESFPI2 below, but your results with
                   this kit should be similar as the mirrors,
                   PZT, and photodiode are the same.  In
                   my tests, the finesse at 633 nm can exceed
                   500 which may actually surpass the
                   performance of a $5,000 instrument.  The
                   finesse falls to around 250 at 594 nm
                   (yellow HeNe), which is still quite
                   exceptional.  At 532 nm it is poor, but
                   still might be adequate to determine if
                   a green laser is single longitudinal mode
                   (single frequency) and suitable for
                   holography.  The performance above 633 nm
                   is not known at this time, but the
                   finesse should still be decent to
                   to 650 or 660 nm.  (However, I cannot
                   guarantee that all mirrors will achieve
                   these high finesses.  They should be
                   close though.)

                   as well as a few other bits and pieces
                   to complete the SFPI.  Some assembly and
                   creativity will still be required but
                   this eliminates the need for much of
                   the midnight scavanging. :)  The photos
                   show the completed head assembly on a
                   3-screw adjustable platform (not included)
                   and a screen shot of a typical scan for
                   a Melles Griot 05-LHR-151 HeNe laser made
                   with it.
     
     SFPI Kit Options:
    
             -Rr  Similar to above but select from mirrors          -         Ask
                   with RoC=r in HeNe Laser Cavity Mirrors.
                   The FSR will be c/(4*RoC) or approximately
                   7.5*109/RoC where r is in cm
                   Note that the reflectivity of the other
                   RoC mirrors is typically 99-98.5%@633 nm so the
                   finesse is not as high (100-150).  The cost
                   will be $5-$10 per additional inch of
                   cavity length for longer Thorlabs cage rods
                   if applied to the HENESFPI2.  Otherwise, it
                   will be almost ununchanged for most mirrors.
    
              -A  Adds a 3-screw adjustable mount for one of        -  Add $ 75.00
                   the mirrors of a Thorlabs cage setup         Assembled/w Mount
                   (shown).  This makes initial setup easier
                   but is not essential (except for a plane-
                   plane cavity).
    
             -HC  A planar mirror is substituted for one of the      - Add $  0.00
                   curved mirrors.  This will then result in
                   a hemispherical confocal (HC) cavity.  Your
                   choice of a 98.5% OC or 99.9+% HR (for higher
                   finesse - recommended, but more difficult
                   to use since the signal level will be lower).
                   The benefit of the HC cavity is that it can
                   be more compact, 1/2 the cavity length and
                   1/2 the drive voltage requirement of the
                   standard confocal SFPI.  A smaller cavity
                   length may be particularly attractive if
                   using larger RoC mirrors to achieve higher
                   resolution.  However, finesse is reduced
                   compared to the normal confocal cavity.
    
                   Note: Since the planar mirror is not identical
                   to the curved mirror, the finesse at
                   wavelengths other 633 nm are not known.
    
             -SS  Selectable Spehrical FSR.  This extends the        -       Ask
                   maximum cavity length to be double that of
                   standard confocal cavity.  The added cost
                   is for longer cage rods.
    
             -SH  Selectable Hemisherical FSR.  Since the            - Add $  0.00
                   maximum cavity length is the same as for
                   confocal configuration, there is no real
                   change.
    
             -PL  Both mirrors are planar, your choice of
                   98.5% or 99.9+% at 633 nm, or one of 
                   each.  Note: To have any chance at all
                   of success, one of the mirrors must be

                         finesse that could exceed 1000.  This
                         may be *extremely* difficult to align
                         but could have spectacular performance.
                         With adjustable mount.
    
       HENESFPI2-R20HC  HENESFPI2 with one 20 cm RoC 98.5%R@633nm    -    $ 200.00
                         mirror and one planar HR mirror for an

                   PZT like the one in the HENESPFI kits.  This
                   eliminates the need for a function generator
                   and provide enough voltage swing to cover
                   multiple FSRs.  Also includes an adjustable
                   gain photodiode preamp.  A schematic, parts
                   list, and assembly instructions will be
                   provided.  Electronic components NOT
                   included.
    
     HENEZYTB1    HeNe laser tube from Zygo 7701/7702 lasers.      2     $  75.00
                   These may be REJECTs for metrology service,
                   but should be fine for experimental
                   stabilized HeNe lasers.  The symptom is
                   that some may glitch and possibly mode
                   flip once in a few hours.  Others may be
                   fine.  Output power of at least 2.5 mW.
                   Require 5-5.5 mA at around 2 KV.

    HeNe Laser Heads and Tubes

    If you don't see something here (particularly for low to medium power), email me via the link at the top of this page. I may have it or know where to get it. Or, ask you need a HeNe laser but don't know which one would be suitable. Or, if you have a HeNe tube you'd like mounted in a proper head cylinder, that can ba arranged.

     HENEATH1-12  Aerotech 12+ mW HeNe laser head with Alden         2   $ 125.00
                   cable.  Note: Beam of all HENEATH1s has a    Pic
                   slight multimode (LG01) profile - a dougnnut
                   shape with a faint dot in the center - not
                   pure TEM00 but the divergence is comparable to
                   that of a typical TEM00 laser.  I think this is
                   by design as the laser heads are labelled 512MR
                   (12 mW, multimode, random polarized). :)
                   Laser head length is about 25 inches, tube
                   is about 19 inches.  The extra space was
                   supposed to be for an internal power supply
                   but I didn't have one when I rebuilt this
                   head, and installed the Alden cable with
                   end-cap instead.  I do have one now, see
                   AC Input HeNe Laser Power Supply Modules.
                   These are definitely more interesting than
                   your average boring red laser head! :)

                   is the same tube as used in HENEATH1-12, above.
                   More power may be possible by walking the
                   mirrors (preferably after adding adjusters).
                   (I've gotten over 17 mW from one sample but
                   doubt this one can come anywhere close.)
                   Tube length is about 19 inches.

                   14 mW after warmup.  The alignment of
                   front mirror is rather touchy but seems
                   to be stable.  Laser head length is about
                   22 inches, tube length is 19 inches.

    HeNe Laser Brewster and Window Heads and Tubes

    There are HeNe laser tubes which require an external mirror or mirrors to complete the laser cavity with the result often called an "open cavity laser" to distinguish it from the common internal mirror HeNe laser tube where everything is sealed inside and inaccessible. Aside from replacements for various rather specialized equipment like particle counters and Raman gas analyzers, they are most often used in educational laser lab courses to demonstrate various aspects of laser construction, operation, resonator stability, spacial and longitudinal modes, and more. These also represent true "laser jock" lasers for the serious hobbyist or experimenter. ;-) In addition to the individual components listed below, more complete setups may be available along with sets of mirrors most useful for these sorts of experiments.

    A basic setup consits of a one or two Brewster window or perpendicular window "plasma" tube, and one or two mirrors on adjustable mounts. Various other components like apertures, waveplates, and birefringent filters can be inserted inside the laser cavity. These would all be mounted on a baseplate, optical table/breadboard, or optical rail.

    While HeNe plasma tubes having windows at both ends are most general, their availability is quite limited. I don't know of a commercial source for them even if price were no concern. There are a few companies that provide educational kits that include tubes and other optical components. These are very well done but also extremely expensive.

    Most of the tubes below have one Brewster window and an internal OC or HR mirror. While not quite as general, this does simplify alignment and reduces the number of surfaces that need to be kept spotless. Compatible power supplies are generally available (though not listed specifically), as well as a wide variety of OC and HR mirrors with RoCs from 25 cm to 3 m.

    One Brewster or one window:

    The following are various laser tubes, heads, or more complex assemblies where the tube has an internal mirror at one end and a Brewster angle window or AR-coated perpendiculaor window at the other end. Most of these have a wide bore and are easy to align, but will generally be multi-spatial mode using a medium radius mirror without an aperture inside the cavity, or the use of some other means of mode control. The design wavelength in all cases is 633 nm (normal HeNe red) unless otherwise noted, but some are capable of at least a bit of orange (612 nm and maybe 605 nm) or yellow (594.1 nm) as noted. If not noted, other wavelengths may still be possible but this has not been confirmed. 1-B and 1-W tubes/heads are great for general experimentation using an external cavity laser without the hassle of critical alignment and optics cleaning at both ends. In general, heads are more robust but don't have the way-cool appearance of bare tubes. :-)

    See the section: HeNe Laser Optics for inexpensive mirrors that will work great with these laser heads. For a kit with most of the parts required to build a one-Brewster laser, see the section: HeNe Laser Kits. Detailed instructions for setting up one-Brewster heads and tubes can be found in Care and Feeding of the Climet 9048 One-Brewster HeNe Laser Head and Care and Feeding of the One-Brewster HeNe Laser Tube, respectively.

    Most of these are hard-seal (frit or optically contacted) meaning they do not need to be run periodically to maintain health. Those that are soft-sealed are noted as such. They work just as well but should be run periodically to keep them that way.

    All 1-B or 1-W tubes include an Alden cable with ballast and clips suitable for the specific tube. All 1-B or 1-W tubes and heads include a new/NOS 7.75 mm diameter OC with an RoC suitable for the specific tube, as well as a planar HR mirror. (The HR for the High-Q tubes and heads has an RoC of 60 cm and is the matching super-polished ultra-high R mirror.) If ordered with an enclosure, the complete rig will come fully assembled.

                   B-window, requires 1,500 V, 6.5 mA.
                   The Melles Griot specs claim 30 WATTS
                   intracavity power with an optimal external
                   HR mirror.  I can't really test that but
                   do get 6 mW out with a 45 cm 98.5% OC,
                   which is excellent for a tube of this length.

                   will run with either an external green OC or
                   HR.  Total power out both ends is 0.5 to 1 mW
                   at 543,5 nm.  A new 543.5 nm HR mirror will
                   be included.  Or use for single pass gain
                   measurements at 633 nm since the green mirror
                   has low reflectance at 633 nm.  It may be
                   possible to get it to lase like a 2-B/2-W
                   tube for red - I was barely able to get a few
                   red photons using a planar HR and 45 cm,

     HENEREO1B-5a REO/PMS 1-B HeNe laser tube in very good           1    $ 325.00
                   condition.  Should do more than 5 mW with     1-B Testing
                   appropriate OC (e.g., 98-99%@633nm, 45 cm
                   RoC). Note: These are soft-seal tubes which
                   like to be petted (run) frequently.
                   Probably a few hours/month or even every
                   few months would keep them happy nearly
                   forever.  But don't let them go years
                   forgotten and neglected or they will
                   be beyond even miraculous cure.  The
                   internal HR probably has a RoC 100 cm.

                   holes on the underside of the shroud.
                   A mirror mount can also be attached via
                   three tapped holes on the front of
                   the shroud.  Using a 594 nm OC mirror,
                   there was also a hint of 612 nm in the
                   output.  An *unmounted* mirror will be

     Climet-2     Climet NON-LASER particle sensor thing.  This      1   $  50.00
                   was purchased by someone on eBay thinking it
                   had a nice one-Brewster or other interesting
                   HeNe laser tube in it.  Nope, though it is
                   interesting.  It consists of a low voltage
                   halogen lamp at one with some relay optics
                   to focus the lamp's filament into a narrow
                   glass tube that is between a pair of
                   compression fittings.  A polished metal
                   parabolic reflector directs any scatter
                   into a UDT455 amplified photodiode.  There
                   is also a yellow LED facing the sensor,
                   presumably for calibration, and some other
                   unidentified device facing the sample.  Comes
                   with the original electronics board, untested.

    HeNe Laser Cavity Mirrors

    Most are the types of mirrors normally installed on internal mirror HeNe laser tubes and are new/NOS. A few have been salvaged from tubes but are guaranteed to be optically perfect.

    Email with specific requirements if you don't see what you want.

    Many are suitable for use with the Brewster heads and tubes listed above. Some types may be used to construct high resolution confocal Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers (SFPIs) for red or green wavelengths.

    The planar mirrors may be used as turning or bounce mirrors from normal to 30-45 degrees incidence, or more in some cases depending on wavelength.

    Large quantities of some of these may be available at a discount. Inquire for details.

    Red (633 nm), new/NOS:

    Many types are available including:

    Unfortunately, the supply of the most popular 45 and 60 cm OCs is very limited.

    But I have large quantities of 633 nm 45, 60, and 120 cm HRs; 543 nm flat HRs; 594 nm 5 m RoC HRs and 1 m RoC OCs, all 7.75 mm diameter. Also, 633 nm 27 cm RoC OCs, 6 mm diameter. Inquire for pricing.

                   at least 5 *unmounted* dielectric mirrors of
                   various radii of curvatures, both OCs and HRs.
                   These are especially good for experiments
                   on resonator stability and mode structure
                   with the one-Brewster lasers listed above.

                   also be useful for a scanning Fabry-Perot
                   interferometers (SFPI).  A confocal SFPI
                   would have an FSR of about 375 MHz

                   Side 2: 32 cm RoC (convex), AR@633nm.
                   Diameter: 7-8 mm.  New.  Good for a
                   high resolution confocal SFPI with FSR
                   of 75 MHz and finesse of at least 300
                   at 633 mm or 750 at 594 nm.  This
                   results in a resolvance of 250 kHz and
                   100 kHz!  Wavelengths between these will
                   have intermediate performance and it
                   decent performance well beyond 633 nm
                   on the long side and 594 nm on the short
                   side.  2 for $40.  (This is the same

                   distance up to about 60 cm from the 1-B's
                   internal HR.  They can also be used to
                   build scanning Fabry-Perot interferometers
                   which can be used at any FSR, though
                   finesse is lower than with the confocal
                   configuration, and alignment is a pain.

    Important: Where you want to salvage mirrors or windows from internal HeNe laser tubes, very specific chants and incantations must be offered to the gods of dead lasers first for there to be any chance of the optics ever working decently after removal.

                   Polished  and AR-coated on all 4 sides.
                   New/NOS.  Cost of similar NP BSC from Newport
                   is around $200.
    
     NPBSC-12     12.5 mm (1/2 inch) non-polarizing beam splitter     1   $  40.00
                   cube.  Broadband, approximately 50:50.
                   Polished and AR-coated on all 4 sides.  Very
                   slight blemish at bottom, doesn't hurt
                   anything.
    
     PBSC-RED-1   4 mm polarizing beam splitter cube for              5   $  20.00
                   HeNe lasers and other red lasers.
                   Design wavelength of 650 nm but works
                   works well at 633 nm.  In fact, between
                   633 nm and 780 nm, the extinction ratio
                   is greater than 1,000 for both T and R.
                   As a polarizer (transmission only),
                   it's >1,000:1 from beyond 780 nm down to
                   at least 532 nm.  Polished and AR-coated
                   on all 4 sides.  Cost new of BSC with
                   similar performance is over $200!
    
     PBSC-RED-3   1 inch square by 1.25 inch high PBS optic,          1   $ 100.00
                   SLIGHTLY DAMAGED - chipped - on 1 face.  Of
                   no consequence (aside from ugliness) if
                   used as beam splitter.  But reduces
                   clear aperture to approximately 5/8"
                   if that side must pass a beam.

                   in mount.  For surveying equipment but works
                   well for other red lasers.  New or like new.
                   Note that this uses a penta-prism so the right
                   angle of the reflected beam is insensitive to
                   slight movement and it maintains correct image
                   sense left-right (not mirrored as with normal
                   plate or cube beam splitters).

                   An Alden cable and ballast/end-cap will be
                   included.  Some assembly required.  These are
                   healthy tubes.  Could also use to repair a
                   tired 1145P but that would be a lot of work.

                   need to warm up before there is anything and
                   even then, no guarantees.  This is a long
                   tube (about 18 inches) requiring 2.75 kV
                   (with 75K ohm ballast) at 6.5 mA.  Good
                   mirrors. :)  Note: Tube only.

     SP-120X      Spectra-Physics laser head with broken tube        2   $  35.00
                   and no cable.  Good (probably aligned)
                   mirrors and cosmetically decent condition.
    
     HENEHVB      Mystery HeNe laser power supply high voltage      10   $   7.50
                   rectifier/filter/starter PCB.  This is the  Pic
                   HV PCB from a Pioneer LaserDisc player.  It
                   includes a voltage doubler/filter capacitor
                   bank accepting 600-800 VRMS and producing
                   approximately 1,800-2,400 DC, a linear
                   regulator transistor, flyback transformer
                   boost/starter, and miscellaneous other
                   stuff.  Schematic and wiring instructions
                   are available.  So not *really* much of a
                   mystery. :)
    
     TRN725-1     AC line transformer for mystery HV PCB, above.     3   $   8.00
                   725 VRMS at around 15-20 mA.  Also has a
                   ~33 VRMS centertapped low voltage winding,
                   probably 1 or 2 A.  About 2-1/2" x 3" x 3-1/2".
                   Also would be good for an SSY1 or M60 ruby
                   laser capacitor charger/power supply.
    
     TRN1650-1    AC line transformer for HeNe laser power supply.  10   $  12.00
                   1,650 VRMS at 10 mA.  Input: 115 VAC.  Output:
                   No load voltage is approximately 1,850 VRMS.
                   The part number is 006-1003154, manufacturer
                   unknown.  Size: 3-3/4" x 3-1/8" x 2-1/4".
                   NOS.  Using one would be good for up to a 4-5 mW
                   laser, 2 for up to a 10-15 mW laser.  Other uses
                   include capacitor charging for a pulsed laser
                   or strobe, electric fence :), etc.  Two for $20.
    
     HENEMGH4-HX  Newly homeless Melles Griot polarized HeNe         5   $  15.00
                   laser head from HENEMGH4s, but weak.  These
                   only produce 2 to 6 mW after warmup (typical
                   is 3-4 mW).  Complete assembly including
                   front and rear end-caps and 6 foot Alden
                   cable.  It's possible that mirror tweaking
                   might result in another mW or so but probably
                   not something dramatic.  Some samples also
                   tend to be hard to start.  No guarantees on
                   anything other than that these heads do
                   lase and produce a nice TEM00 polarized
                   beam.  Or consider it the perfect home for
                   your homeless 5-10 mW HeNe laser tube with
                   cathode-end output.  Removing the tube intact
                   and reusing everything else is fairly easy.
                   This homeless head special includes USPS
                   shipping in the USA (or a shipping credit
                   if combined with other stuff).  First come
                   first served for highest power.  Quantity
                   discounts available. :)

                   continuous duty.
    
     HENELPS1-X   HeNe low power homeless tube special 1.             5   $   7.00

                   0.3 to 0.7 mW.  Includes shipping.  Or,
                   just $3.00 with any other order over $25.
                   At the very least you get $10 worth of
                   good mirrors.  I don't know what chants are
                   required to pacify the gods of dead lasers
                   if I salvaged the mirrors from these since
                   the output power is so low. :)  They have
                   good discharge color but mirror alignment won't
                   help.  So if you want a laser tube that looks
                   and acts like a laser tube but is just tired
                   from long hours of lasing and guaranteed to
                   be Class 2 and eye safe for demos, these are
                   for you!  Two for $10.
    
     HENELPS2-X   HeNe low power homeless tube special 2.             3   $  25.00
                   Tube similar to Melles Griot 05-LHR-150
                   or 05-LHP-150 (your choice subject to
                   availability) doing 4 to 5 mW after
                   warmup.  Could be 05-LHR-140 or
                   05-LHP-140 in which case they even meet
                   spec.  Includes shipping in the USA.
    
     HENELPS3-X   HeNe hard start and/or hard run 05-LHR-640          -   $   2.50
                   very cute 0.5 mW HeNe lsaer tube.  These
                   produce at least 0.5 mW (most do somewhat
                   more) but due to long hours slaving away
                   in some sort of measurement instrument, have
                   a higher than normal operating voltage,
                   some may also be slightly hard to start and,
                   there is likely to be significant brown
                   crud in the bore.  But they will work on a
                   05-LPM-379 or similar power supply with
                   a 75K ballast resistor close to the tube.
                   One free tube upon request with any other
                   order over $25.

                   HeNe laser tubes.  Good mirrors, but at this
                   price, you'll have to provide your own chants
                   to the gods of dead lasers if you want to
                   remove them. :).  Note: RoC of OC mirror is
                   probably 30 cm or less, not very good for use
                   with 1-B HeNe laser tubes except very close
                   to the B-window, but might be suitable
                   for a Scanning Fabry-Perot interferometer.
    
     HENEMGH1-X   Melles Griot 05-LHR-911 laser head.  Includes       3   $  10.00
                   front end-cap with shutter and short cable
                   but no Alden connector.  Low or no output
                   but I will guarantee that mirror alignment
                   will get you at least 1 mW, possibly as much
                   2 mW.  Requires drilling 3 holes in cylinder
                   opposite front mirror adjusting screws.
                   I'm just too lazy to bother but it really is
                   just a 10 minute job with a drill press and
                   hex wrench.  And since it's the cathode-end
                   mirror that needs to be adjusted, no shocking 
                   experiences (usually).  :)  Or, at this price,
                   just salvage the mirrors for your 1-B laser
                   tube (but I don't want to know).
    
     HENENLX1     Weird beam 1 mW HeNe laser tube.  The beam is       2   $   3.00
                   weird because the outer surface of the OC
                   mirror is broken.  The tube lases just fine
                   with rated power, the beam is just strange.
                   You could sand it down and have an even more
                   strange constellation of dots generator.
                   Or, consider it an eye-safe HeNe laser! :)
    
     HENESP132-X1 Spectra-Physics 132 laser complete but              1   $  15.00
                   not functional due to bad tube.
    
     HENESP132-X2 Spectra-Physics 132 laser complete but              1   $  25.00
                   tube only starts when finger is applied
                   And goes out after warmup due to high
                   dropout current (or something).  Decent
                   power when it runs.
    
     HENESP155-P1 New (NOS) power supply board for SP-155             1   $  10.00

                   for installing your own laser project.
    
     HENESP907-X1 Spectra-Physics model 907 HeNe laser tube           1   $ 175.00
                   assembly (same as used in SP-127 laser.)  It
                   is doing about 20 mW after warmup.  Rated at
                   25-35 mW.  Proper cleaning of Brewster windows
                   and mirrors should help some.  Rewired with
                   standard Alden connector.  Will run on
                   modified SP-255 exciter.
    
     HENES7676-X1 Siemens LGK-7676 HeNe laser tube assembly           1   $ 175.00
                   (similar to SP-907).  It is doing about 16-18
                   mW after warmup.  Rated at 25-35 mW.  Proper
                   cleaning of Brewster windows and mirrors
                   should help some.  Rewired with standard Alden
                   connector.  Will run on modified SP-255

     HENE-CYL1    Aluminum cylinders (no end-caps) from various      -    $   1.00
                   HeNe lasers from 7 to 12 inches in length,
                   1.75 inches in diameter.  Most are in excellent
                   condition.  Ask.
    
     HENE-CYL2    Same as above but 13 to 25 inches in length.       -    $   2.00
    
     HENE-HEAD1   Complete laser head minus the tube.  This is a     1    $   7.50
                   rather unusual size - for mounting a 1" or less
                   diameter up to 8-1/4" long tube, cathode-end
                   output.  1" outside diameter.  With front
                   end-cap (no shutter), rear end-cap with 2 foot
                   Alden cable and internal ballast resistor.
    
     The following, shall we say, may have some problems.  OK, they have more
     problems than some of the others. :)  These are various HeNe laser
     tubes/heads that don't work properly for one reason or another but
     may be of use for organ donations or recycling into your home-built laser
     or high-tech wall hanging.  In some case, they may be repairable.
    
    
     SP-120-X     SP-120 laser heads.  Good resonator with 633 nm    2    $  15.00
                   mirrors, NO tube or broken tube, NO or cut
                   cable, fair-good overall condition.
    
     SP-120-Z     SP-120 laser heads.  Good resonator with 633 nm    1    $  25.00
                   mirrors, Starts but does not lase due to gas
                   contamination.  Extended running might help but
                   not that likely.
    
     HENEDT3-1    Melles Griot 05-LGR-024 green HeNe laser tube.     1    $  20.00
                   Up to air (won't start).  For mirrors only.
    
     HENEGRN-X1   12-17 inch green HeNe laser tubes non-lasing.      2    $  25.00
                   These light up normally but no green photons
                   come out the front.  I've tried alignment but
                   though unlikely, can't rule out the possibility
                   that I didn't try hard enough.
    
     HENEGRN-X2   12-17 inch green HeNe laser tubes up to air.       2    $  20.00
                   Good mirrors or add your own gas. :)
    
     HENE1BDT1    Non-working Melles Griot 05-LHB-570 one-Brewster   2    $  10.00
                   laser tube.  Ionizes but sputter overcoat on
                   Brewster window due to loose cathode or
                   reverse polarity.  Good HR.  Brewster window
                   may be salvageable but will require removal
                   of sputtered aluminum coating from the *inside*.
    
     HENEDT4-0    Melles Griot 05-LHR-926 or similar extremely       1    $  35.00
                   long (~1m) HeNe laser tube with hairline crack
                   in cathode-end frit seal.  Perfect cosmetic
                   condition otherwise.  Glob on some Torr-seal
                   and fill with gas but may need alignment. :)
    
     HENEDT4-1    Extremely long (over 1 meter) HeNe laser tube      1    $  35.00
                   of conventional design, hard-seal, gas intact
                   and starts and runs with perfect discharge
                   color but output is less than 1 mW and
                   and fluctuates, and mirror alignment is VERY
                   critical.  With the addition of a series of
                   Zeeman suppression magnets, I would imagine
                   that you could get a few mW but almost
                   certainly nowhere near the 35 mW rating.
                   This is NOT a mirror alignment problem
                   but either a gas-fill, incorrect mirror
                   formula, or bad resonator design.  Perfect
                   physical conition.
      
     HENEDT4-2    Very long (about 0.8 meter) HeNe laser tube        1    $  25.00
                   of segmented design, hard-seal but up to
                   air.  With a segemented tube, the
                   bore is split into sections - this may
                   improve the distribution of the gas or
                   something and in any case looks cool.  Tube
                   would be rated 15 to 25 mW if operational.
    
     HENEDT4-3    Medium (about 0.6 meter) HeNe laser tube of        1    $  15.00
                   conventional design, hard-seal but up to air
                   as above.  Tube would be rated 12 to 15 mW
                   if operational.  This tube was removed from an
                   Aerotech HENEATH1-12 head (see above).
    
     HENEDT5-1    Very long (about 0.8 meter) HeNe laser tube        1      Make
                   of segmented design with cathode in side-arm.             offer
                   Soft-seal has leaked over time.  Ionizes but
                   does not lase.  OC mirror has screws for
                   alignment.  Brewster window seal between
                   interior and outer chambers.  Interesting
                   display piece.  The model is probably LS16P.
    
     HENESP124-X  NON-WORKING Spectra-Physics model 124 laser        1    $  75.00
                   head, needs new tube or refill.  Good optics.
                   Older blue case, very good condition overall.
                   No cable.
    
     HENESP127-B  Bore ONLY from SP-127 tube.  No electrodes         1    $  25.00
                   (hole where anode pin should be), Brewster
                   window still present at that end.  Fairly
                   clean (almost no brown crud).  Use for PMG
                   laser experiments or a cattle prod. :)
    
     The following are only good for boat anchors or architectural use unless you
     have a way of removing hard potting material without damaging components
     underneath, and then repairing whatever is wrong.  I have no idea why I'm
     even saving them.  Maybe as ballast to get traction in snow. :)
    
     HENEPS-ADE  Dead AC input HeNe laser power supply bricks,       -    $   0.00
                  various models.  All wires are cut so there is
                  really nothing salvageable on the outside
                  except maybe some labels.  I can't imagine
                  why anyone would want these but people do
                  buy used dirt on eBay so I guess almost
                  anything's possible. :)  Perfect for testing
                  your magic Epoxy dissolvo formula!  Just
                  pay for shipping - 10 or 15 should fit in
                  a USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail box.  Act
                  now, these are going fast! ;-)
    
     HENEPS-DDE  Same as above but DC input.                         -    $   0.00
    
     And some more useless stuff:
    
     HENECYL-X   Pieces of standard size HeNe aluminum cylinders,    -    $   0.00
                  typically 3-6 inches but some longer and shorter.
                  Pay shipping, but aluminum recycling won't even
                  make up for that.

                  3-screw adjustable rings, end-plates, and
                  tapped 1/4-20 holes in bottom to attach
                  to Newport posts.  Provides protection
                  for fragile humans from the high voltage
                  and protection for the fragile tube
                  from humans. :)

     SMFC-1      Single mode fiber coupler with ~18 inch SM        2     $ 100.00
                  cable to FC/APC connector.  The actual
                  coupler is glued into a larger assembly
                  shutter (!!) but may be removable.

                  counter.  Plumbing and optics, no sensors.     Parts
    
     GALVO-1     Medium speed X-Y voice coil galvo from            1     $  75.00
                  LaserDisc player.  Connect to PC sound          Pic
                  card or audio amp for lots of interesting
                  effects.  The dielectric mirrors will work
                  with any red laser.  There is plenty of free
                  lissajous figure and spirograph software
                  on the Internet.  But simply displaying
                  the left and right channels of stereo music
                  is very entertaining.      
    
     EOMOD1      Electro-optic modulator thing.  This is a         1     $ 100.00
                  about 10 inches long and 3 inches in diameter   Pic
                  with a couple mm hole in the middle at each
                  end.  Applying several hundred volts via a BNC
                  connector varies the transmitted light
                  intensity.  At DC, a full 180 degree phase
                  shift - intensity from min to min or max to
                  max - requires about 500 V.  The response is
                  flat to a few hundred kHz, and usable to a
                  few MHz.  Optics need cleaning and this may
                  be filled with nasty liquid - there is a
                  fill port.  I did not explore further.
                  And it comes in a very nice hand-rubbed
                  wooden box. :)

     OMNI-3039-1 Omni 39-series 325 nm rectangular laser head.     1      $ 100.00
                  This probably has high helium pressure.  It
                  used to lase when the tube voltage set-point
                  was set to one end but now it won't even do
                  that.  It may require a few months of running
                  to restore full power if that's even possible.
                  Nice display piece if nothing lese, not huge
                  like the 56 or 74 series HeCds. :)  Rated 5 mW.

                  mirrors, (442 nm) cathode/filaments (2), He
                  reservoir preloaded with ultra pure He,
                  pressure sensors (2), just add Cd. :)  This
                  appears to be Melles Griot surplus when
                  they discontinued their HeCd product line.
                  Absolutely beautiful glasswork with none
                  of that ugly condensed Cd or prickly
                  insulation present on used HeCd lasers.
                  AND no hazmat issues.  Almost 2 feet long,
                  mount on/in nice polished hardwood frame! :-)
                  Or, complete for a working HeCd or perhaps
                  an HeSe or other similar home-built laser.

    Bare and Fiber-Coupled Laser Diodes

    Note: For all laser diodes with a spec'd output power of more than 5 mW, the DISCLAIMER and WARRANTY Form for High Power Laser Diodes must be completed and returned prior to shipment.

    The following 2 laser diodes are for experimental purposes with limited specifications but should work well to pump DPSS green lasers up to about 100 mW and IR lasers up to about 400 mW. Samples have been tested with both CASIX DPM MCAs and in Uniphase uGreen DPSS lasers. They are NOS (new old stock) which means never used but a few years old. I will test the diode(s) I ship for threshold current and current at maximum power. Specifications were determined based on testing and their use in uGreen lasers and comparison with similar diodes with known specs.

    Like all bare laser diodes, these are extremely sensitive to Electro-Static Discharge (ESD), overcurrent, and other causes. The warranty on these diodes is only for misrepresentation of wavelength or maximum power. See the DISCLAIMER and WARRANTY Form for High Power Laser Diodes.

                   multimode, at least 1.2 W max, appears to be
                   100 um stripe.  Threshold: 320 to 360 mA,
                   slope efficiency: 0.9 to 1.1, power out at
                   1 A: 600 to 700 mW.  These were probably for
                   Uniphase uGreen lasers.  A similar diode
                   was installed as a replacement in a uGreen
                   4301 laser and worked well.  Beam shoots
                   away from mounting surface.  C-mount is
                   positive.  I believe these to be the same
                   as the SDL-2360-Cs but they have no model
                   number.

    LD-SCL2372-P1 SDL 2 W multimode 808 nm laser diode in - $ 400.00 temperature controlled package with monitor photodiode. This is what you need to repair that tired weak Coherent 532 DPSS laser.

    The following 3 laser diodes are for experimental purposes with limited specifications but they do lase. They are NOS (new old stock) which means never used but a few years old. I will test the diode(s) I ship for threshold current and current at maximum power but that's it. To determine what's listed below, samples of each type were tested using an LDC-3900 laser diode controller. Wavelength was determined using an Ando Optical Spectrum analyzer. Maximum output power was estimated by increasing current in increments of 10 mA until output didn't continue to increase or decreased. The rated power was then assumed to be a nice round number below this value. :) Interestingly, all tested diodes recovered fully unless pushed way beyond this point. The power versus current data for three samples is plotted in Single Mode Diodes Data.

    They were determined to be single mode by using a 12 mm focal length lens to project a spot on a screen about 1 meter away. The spot was a nice point. A multi-transverse mode diode would result in a line which would be a 80X or so magnified image of the stripe.

    The beam shoots away from the mounting surface (C-mounts come in both types). Like all bare laser diodes, these are extremely sensitive to static and reverse polarity. Warranty on these diodes is only for misrepresentation of wavelength, maximum power, or single mode. A refund will be issued if any of these specs are found to be in error. Since high power single mode laser diodes usually go for 3 or 4 times what I'm charging, it's a small risk as long as you know how to safely drive this type of laser diode. Like all bare laser diodes, these are extremely sensitive to Electro-Static Discharge (ESD), overcurrent, and other causes. The warranty on these diodes is only for misrepresentation of wavelength or maximum power. See the DISCLAIMER and WARRANTY Form for High Power Laser Diodes.

    Closeups of Samples of These C-Mount Diodes.

    LD840-1 C-mount laser diode, 835-845 nm, appears to 10 $ 150.00 be single transverse mode, typical threshold current around 30 mA. Probably rated 150 to 200 mW max. A sample was tested to 240 mW. Slope efficiency: 0.83. C-mount is positive. LD980-1 C-mount laser diode, 980-990 nm, appears to 20 $ 125.00 be single transverse mode, typical threshold current around 27 mA. Probably rated 100 mW max. A sample was tested to 140 mW. Slope efficiency: 0.75. C-mount is positive. Uses include pumping erbium:glass microchip lasers. LD980-2 C-mount laser diode, 980-990 nm, appears to 9 $ 100.00 be single transverse mode, typical threshold current around 15 mA. Probably rated 100 mW max. A sample was tested to 130 mW. Slope efficiency: 0.8. C-mount is NEGATIVE - opposite of normal! Uses include pumping erbium:glass microchip lasers.

This assembly appears to Pic clamp the (probably) 9 mm LD in place so it may be possible to replace it with one of your own. Comes with driver PCB. The connections to run the diode will be provided but I haven't figured out the others. The lens is adjustable but saeled with adhesive. $2 each or 3 for $5.

     C313M-80     Coherent Compass 313M.  (Not a typo!).  This is  1    $ 1,750,00
                   a 1,313 nm laser that resembles a C315M and
                   uses the same controller (though the one that
                   comes with this system is labeled C313M).
                   It originally was fiber-coupled but the fiber
                   has been removed because it was broken,
                   so it's become a free-space laser.
                   Includes C313M laser head, controller
                   umbilical, and Autostart, on large heatsink.
                   The maximum output power is between 80 and
                   90 mW.  This is probably NOT SLM but is
                   quite stable.

                   angle-coupled SM fiber and flexure
                   pan-tilt output mount which may be  
                   attached to an optical table or
                   post.  Output is TEM00 with a ~2 mR
                   divergence.  Note: Requires mounting
                   block or equivalent at laser end.
                   Inquire for options.  Although design
                   wavelength is 488 nm, this should be
                   fine for 532 nm.

                   Mint condition.  This laser is like new      Head Ctrl SLM
                   and is happy at 155+ mW.  It held lock
                   for an hour at 200 mW and 233 mW has been
                   seen when scanning.  It will be set at a
                   little over 150 mW and it is ready for
                   holograms. This is the best Adlas I have
                   seen with only 1427 hours on the clock,
                   which is nothing for these lasers.  Pure
                   SLM.

                   from 35 to 110+ mW via RS232 control.  This is
                   the predecessor to the C315M.  It has been
                   stored in a stasis field so while the
                   maximum power is a bit below what it was
                   when new, it is in otherwise like-new
                   condition.  Includes power unit, controller,
                   and laserhead with fan-cooled heat-sink.
                   A terminal emulator may be used to control it.

                   (Single Longitudinal Mode).  Turn-key
                   complete.  The power may be set via its
                   RS232 port from about 100 to over 400 mW.
                   Consists of controller, and laser head
                   on large fan-cooled heatsink.  (The
                   fan may be unplugged to reduce vibrations.)
                   Mint physical condition stored in the same
                   stasis field as DPY-315II, above. :)

                   dongle, and DC power pack. The
                   only issue is that the two ghost
                   spots (present in all these lasers)
                   are rather bright in this head
                   but this does not affect the main
                   beam.  Pure SLM.

     LWE142H-400  Lightwave/JDSU model 142H-400 532 nm NPRO         1  $ 10,000.00

                   power of 400 mW, set at 420 mW, and capable
                   of over 500 mW.  It is believed to have
                   been used fewer than 2000 hours, tuned up
                   in 2009 and then by me in 2014.  It is
                   like new in every respect.  Includes laser
                   head on massive fan-cooled heatsink and
                   Lightwave power supply box.  (The fan may
                   be unplugged for some time if desired to
                   minimize vibrations.)  These are among the
                   lowest noise 532 nm lasers on the Planet.
    
     LWE120-02A   Lightwave model 120-02A 1,319 nm NPRO ultra-low   2    $ 3500.00

                   from 0 to 4 mW and adjustable frequency over
                   15 GHz.  <5 kHz linewidth.  Excellent
                   functional condition and very good cosmetic
                   condition.  See: LWE-120 Specifcations.
    
     LWE123-1     Lightwave Electronics Model 123-1319-50-B        1    $ 6,000.00
                   1,319 nm single frequency DPSS fiber-coupled     Head Power SLM
                   laser head with built-in controller.  This
                   is an NPRO based laser with a power output
                   of 30 to 35 mW out of an single mode
                   fiber with an FC/PC connector.  The laser
                   head is mounted on a plate with the fiber
                   safely protected by a sheet-metal cover
                   (not shown).  For continuous operation,
                   a heatsink should be attached to the left
                   side of the head (not included).  The
                   +/-12 VDC and +5 VDC power supply is
                   included (not shown).
    
     LWE125-1     Lightwave Electronics M125-1313-030 fiber-         1   $  250.00
                   coupled 1313 nm multimode laser.  This was      Pic 1 2 3 4
                   some sort of special order from LWE.  Even
                   though it has the M125 model number and is
                   in a mint condition M125 case, it is
                   NOT an NPRO but a monolithic YLF FP cavity
                   pumped by a C-mount laser diode.  It is
                   therefore multi-longitudinal mode.  The
                   output is over 10 mW (30 mW when new).
                   More may be possible by turning up the
                   pump diode current via the internal pot.
                   The output is via a permanently attached
                   single mode fiber feeding a collimator
                   producing a very nice ~2 mm TEM00 beam.
                   The price is negotiable.  Interesting
                   experimenters' item, or if you need
                   1313 nm.  Mint physical condition.
    
     AL-1320-1    Amoco 1320 nm DPSS laser, 60+ mW TEM00 beam.       1   $ 1500.00
                   Includes laser head, umbilical, and power unit. Pic
                   The laser head is fan-cooled with TEC
                   for temperature control.  Stable within a few
                   seconds of power-on.  I believe this is capable
                   of much higher power since there is a fan
                   attached to the laser head (powered separately,
                   DC wall adapter not included) but it is not
                   needed at the power level at which the laser
                   is set.
    

    DPSS Laser Parts and Accessories

    Here are some Compass-M (Coherent C215M, C315M, and C415M) accessories. For the blank printed circuit boards (PCBs), Jameco has all of the additional parts, which should be under $5 for any of them, much less if you have a moderately well stocked junk drawer. However, for Autostart Adapter 2, a complete kit is available. IMPORTANT: We will not be liable if your laser is damaged due to poor soldering skills or incorrect assembly!

     PSPSI150     150 W Multiple Output Switchmode Power Supply.     >10  $  20.00
                  This is a Power Solutions, Inc. Easymode(tm)
                  open frame switcher capable of driving
                  the C315M Coherent Analog Controller on its
                  12 VDC output or the Coherent C215M Analog
                  Controller on its 5 VDC output as well as
                  other analog or digital components in
                  your laser system.  Input: universal 90-250
                  VAC, 47-63 Hz.  Outputs: 5 VDC at 7.7 A,
                  12 VDC at 6.6 A, 24 VDC at 2 A.  New (NOS).
                  Note: A 5 ohm 7 W resistor is required on
                  the 5 VDC output to assure stability if no
                  other load is present (NOT included).  This
                  is the same power supply I currently use to
                  test C315M lasers.  The connections on the
                  low voltage terminal strip are (from left
                  to right): +12,GND,+24,NC,GND,GND,+5,+5.
                  Also perfect for Uniphase uGreens.  The
                  input terminal strip is H, N, G, with
                  G next to the blue cap or MOV.

                  These are slightly the worse for wear with
                  non-functional or missing vacuum relay and
                  other broken or missing parts.  But,
                  the 36 uF capacitor, inductor, and diode
                  are in excellent condition and guaranteed
                  to work with SSY1.

                   cable is included but coupler and cable
                   maybe removed so there's simply a hole. ;)
                   Maximum beam diameter is approximatley 5 mm.
                   Maximum beam power is not known but is many

     PBSC-RED-1   4 mm polarizing beam splitter cube for              5   $  20.00
                   HeNe lasers and other red lasers.
                   Design wavelength of 650 nm but works
                   works well at 633 nm.  In fact, between
                   633 nm and 780 nm, the extinction ratio
                   is greater than 1,000 for both T and R.
                   As a polarizer (transmission only),
                   it's >1,000:1 from beyond 780 nm down to
                   at least 532 nm.  Polished and AR-coated
                   on all 4 sides.  Cost new of BSC with
                   similar performance is over $200!
    
     PBSC-BLU-1   3 mm polarizing beam splitter cube for            1   $  20.00
                   blue/violet lasers.  Design wavelength
                   of 405 nm.  This is what you need to
                   combine two Blu-ray diodes.

                  sure, focal length is about 4 inches.
                  Coated on 1/2 inch thick glass base, 1.5

                  glass based.  Somewhat abused, recoating
                  would be desirable but should be usable

                  on 5/8" centers, adjusted by three 64 tpi
                  thumbscrews through 4.5" x 5.125" backing
                  plate.  Very precise.  Small adjustment
                  in Z is also possible since the pivot is
                  also a screw.  Like new condition.

     MMNT1-1     1/2" x 1/2" high quality front surface mirror    10    $  15.00
                  on somewhat kinematic adjustable mount.  This  Front Rear
                  is NOT like a Newport MM05 so probably NOT
                  recommended for use inside a laser cavity but
                  would be very suitable for beam steering in
                  a laser projector, interferometer, or
                  holography setup.  The coating is protected
                  aluminum with better than 95% broad-band
                  reflectance.  The mirror is glued in place
                  and can probably be removed to mount another
                  optic but the back of the mount would have
                  to be drilled if it were necessary to pass
                  the beam through it.
    
     MMNT2-1     3/4" x 3/4" high quality front surface mirror     10   $  15.00
                  on slightly larger adjustable mount.  These   Pic 1 - Front/Bottom
                  are actually reasonably precise, if cheaply   Pic 2 - Rear>
                  made, spherical mounts.  Spherical means that
                  the center of the mirror surface maintains a
                  nearly constant position along the optic
                  axis when the mirror is adjusted.  The only
                  problem is that the base is tilted at about
                  a 5 degree angle so to get the full range,
                  a piece of scrap metal has to be wedged under
                  one side.  Center of mirror is ~3/4" from
                  mounting surface.
    
     MMNT3-1     1-1/2" x 1-7/16" high quality front surface        2   $  35.00
                  on kinematic mount.  Hex screw adjustments       Pic
                  from rear.  May be attached to Newport post
                  or flat plate.
    
     MMNT4-1     Small kinematic mount with 1/2" diameter           1   $  25.00
                  dielectric mirror, HR@633nm@45degrees.           Pic
                  (Close to HR at normal incidence.)  Mount
                  is 1"x1.5".   Includes bracket for attaching
                  at 45 degrees.  (There are actually 3 screws
                  so a small amount of Z adjustment is also
                  possible.)
    
     MMNT4-2     Similar to above but mirror has slight ding,      1    $  20.00
                  of no consequence for a small beam.

                  15 feet.  The square box has several feet of
                  unarmored cable coiled up inside, purpose
                  unknown.
    
     SP3.16M-1   Spectra-Physics Fiber Optic Coupler Model          1   $  100.00
                  3.16M.  The control box works but the    Coupler Box: Front Back
                  shutter inside the coupler itself is
                  missing parts.  So figure this to be
                  an SMA fiber coupler and cute but not
                  terribly useful control box. :)  The
                  toggle switch along with the foot switch
                  (sold separate) or external interlock
                  turns ~15 VDC on and off while the knob
                  adjusts the voltage on the rear BNC.  
                  Perhaps the box would be more useful to
                  install a nice HeNe laser power supply
                  brick. ;-)

                  depth with cable.   This is an IR LED/
                  photodiode pair, no active circuitry.
    
     FRIGIT-IO   Frigitronics indirect ophthalmoscope made by       1       Make
                  Cooper Surgical.  Very good condition except               offer
                  for top adjustment on headband which still
                  works but the plastic is cracked.  Includes
                  head unit, extension cable with switch, and
                  variable intensity power supply for light.
                  The power supply might be useful for something
                  but other than that, if you don't know what
                  this is, I guarantee you won't want it unless
                  you'd like to give a nice Christmas present
                  to your eye doctor!  And he/she may not want
                  it. :)
    

    Barcode Scanners and Parts

    Lasers and power supplies from barcode scanners (including the complete very cute HeNe laser from the Metrologic MH290 hand-held scanner) are listed in the sections for HeNe Lasers and Diode Lasers, above. The items listed below are more barcode scanner related.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     IBM4687     IBM 4687 barcode checkout scanner with              1   $ 100.00
                  Spectra-Physics electronic scale (30 pound max
                  in 0.01 pound resolution).  This is a full size
                  heavy undercounter unit.  Includes 1 mW HeNe
                  laser tube (Siemens 7641S or Uniphase 098-1,
                  see the info and photos for these tubes, above),
                  with PSU on mainboard, polygon scanner, many
                  mirrors, lenses, and other optics, etc.
                  Well worn but believed fully functional
                  (It bleeps appropriately and the scale reads
                  reasonably accurately.)  You may have to
                  scrape off some congealed chicken juice
                  though. :)  Pickup in Philadelphia area only.
    
     IBM4687-MB  Mainboard from IBM4687.  I have been scavanging     1   $  15.00
                  parts from the HeNe laser power supply so the
                  main things left are the power transformer and
                  low voltage power supply and barcode scanner
                  control and readback electronics. :)
    
     IBM4781     Hand-held barcode scanner, LED type.  Red           1   $  10.00
                  filter is missing from front.  For parts
                  or experimentation.  IBM part #96X4781.
                  Hand unit only.  Untested.
    
     BCSSCAN1    Scanner mirror assembly from Orion barcode          -   $  20.00
                  scanner.  Includes motor, control PCB, and   Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3
                  6 mirror scanner (6 line raster scan - NOT
                  like a laser printer scanner!).  Easy to
                  Power.  See Specs and Wiring Info.
                  Although designed for 24 VDC to the motor,
                  they will run happily using only 12 VDC for
                  both the logic and motor.  An external pot
                  can be added to extend the speed range from
                  near 0 rpm to over 4,000 rpm.  Detailed
                  instructions provided.
    
                  And as evident in in the final pic, the mirror     Pic 4
                  assembly can be removed with some difficulty
                  and then the motor can be used for something
                  else.  The individual mirrors can also be
                  carefully unglued after removing the plastic
                  plugs at the top.
    
                  Whimpier scanner motor assemblies are sold on
                  eBay for much more, intended for laser show

                  barcode scanner.  Includes motor, control PCB,  Top Bottom
                  and 3 mirror scanner (3 line raster scan - NOT
                  like a laser printer scanner!).  Easy to
                  power on 15 to 20 VDC.  Speed can be varied
                  by controlling input voltage to one pin
                  but is not regulated like that of BCSSCAN1..
                  The type on the left is most likely what you

    Laser Lab Starter Setup

    This is a set of 6 like-new lasers covering most of the visible spectrum with output powers of 20-50 mW. It consists of the following:

    All are very high quality units consisting either of a laser head and controller/power supply or integrated unit. They come complete with DC power supplies and heatsinks where required and are essentially turn-key systems. The DPSS and OPSL lasers are single frequency (single longitudinal mode, SLM). The diode lasers have built-in analog and high speed modulation capability.

    This set of lasers will get your laser lab off to a flying start for a fraction of the cost of buying from the manufacturers. All lasers are guaranteed to exceed original specifications. Other wavelengths or output powers, as well as customized packaging may be available. Inquire for details and pricing.

    Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometers/Laser Spectrum Analyzers

    The Scanning Fabry-Perot Interferometer (SFPI, also known as a Laser Spectrum Analyzer or LSA) is used to display the longitudinal mode structure of various kinds of lasers. They may also be used as tunable Fabry-Perot etalons.

    Most are confocal configurations simplifying alignment. A lower FSR (like 1.5 GHz) provides higher resolution but will result in "aliasing" where the laser has a wide gain bandwidth. High FSR units (e.g., 30 GHz) may be more suitable for diode lasers but are quite finicky to align and generally have lower finesse. For HeNe lasers, 1.5 to 2 GHz is optimal. For most ion lasers, 8 GHz is wide enough. For testing single frequency lasers, any FSR will be fine, so a lower FSR is preferred due to easier alignment and generally higher resolution.

    Other mirror sets or SFPI setups may be available, ask.

    For these higher value items, all reasonable offers will be considered.

    If cash is really tight or you're inclined to roll your own, go to HeNe Laser and SFPI Kits. (Most of these are intended for the 633 nm HeNe and similar red laser but should be usable at wavelengths down to at least 595 nm and up beyond 650 nm.)

                  240 (and equivalent later model) SFPI
                  heads.  These have an FSR of around
                  1.7 GHz.  At 633 nm, I measured a finesse
                  >350 for a 6 mm beam and >600 for a
                  2 mm beam.  Includes mirrors with
                  adapters, easily installed and adjusted
                  by end-user.  Mirror sets for 633 nm are
                  no longer available from Coherent.  The
                  1.7 GHz FSR is actually a bit better
                  for viewing red HeNe longitudinal modes
                  than the 1.5 GHz FSR of the mirrors that
                  were normally supplied with these
                  instruments.  The mirrors are still
                  usable down to below 594 nm, and probably
                  above 650 nm.

                  transistor upon request.  This works fine,
                  really. :-)  The mirror set will probably
                  be OK at other wavelengths within +/-50 nm
                  or more away from 1,319 nm, but possibly
                  with lower finesse.   All serious offers

                  splitter at 45 degrees on mount that slips
                  over front of SFPI so a portion of laser beam
                  is reflected into SFPI.  Probably around 5
                  percent in reflected beam.  Can also be
                  installed on the front of a 1.75" diameter
                  laser head to sample the beam that way instead.

    Vintage/Antique/Collectible Laser Items

    Many (but not all) of these are guaranteed NOT to work properly (or at all) anymore but could be of historic or collectable interest to the true laser afficionado. All reasonable offers considered but I'm not giving the vintage ones away for a song or 6 photons.

     PE-5600-1   Perkin Elmer 5200 laser head with 5204            1      $ 375.00
                  power supply NON-WORKING.  The head has a     Pic
                  truly ancient hot filament two Brewster
                  tube in a James Bond-style enclosure.
                  The tube  is almost up to air, sorry.
                  Likely late 1960s.

                   cabinet in very good condition.  What's
                   inside is junk - part of a Metrologic
                   with broken tube (removed), tiny mirror
                   on voice coil, audio driver.
    
     MLHECD-1     Metrologic Helium-Cadmium (HeCd) laser.          1      $ 500.00

                   and tube is intact, though leaky.
                   This is a very rare laser.  Self-contained
                   but it is heavy - around 30 pounds.
    
     SP119-1      Spectra-Physics 119 HeNe laser including         1      $ 500.00
                   SP-259 exciter with manual tuning plug-in
                   and SP-119 lsaer head (no beam expander).
                   Last I tried it the tube lit up and output
                   a whopping 12 µW, but no guarantees.
                   Consider it a display piece.
    
     HENEORIEL-1  Oriel HeNe laser head with matching power        1      $ 300.00
                   supply, linearly polarized, 2+ mW!  This    Pic
                   one is from 1979 with a Hughes tube.  The
                   power supply generates HF AC which is
                   then boosted and rectified in the head.
                   CDRH version with keylock and interlock
                   on power supply and shutter on head.
    
     EDMUND-1     Edmund Scientific (Metrologic) HeNe laser        1      $ 500.00
                   with modern tube installed.  Original tube     Front Back
                   will be included for display purposes.
    
     EDMUND-2     Edmund Scientific HeNe laser on short optical    1      $ 750.00
                   rail with mirror on adjustable mount.  NON-    Front Back Tube
                   WORKING.  This has a one-Brewster laser tube
                   inside, very rare.  Very good cosmetic
                   condition but the J-tube is up to air.
    
     PULSARG-1    Pulsed argon ion laser, circa 1969 WORKING.      1     $ 2000.00
                   This is either a commercial prototype or       Pic
                   home-built laser.  More info at:
                   Vintage Pulsed Argon Ion Demonstration Laser.
                   Includes custom made clear Plexiglas side
                   and top panels for protection.
    
     SPECTRA477-1 Spectra model 477 ramp generator.  Although      1     $ 200.00
                   a higher number, this must predate the SP-476  Pic
                   since it is Spectra, NOT Spectra-Physics, and
                   is obviously more primitive.  Partially
                   working, fair-good cosmetic condition.
    
     HENESP120-1  Spectra-Physics 120 laser head with matching     1   $ 1,500.00
                   SP-256 exciter in near mint condition.         Pic
                   Instant start, over 8 mW after short
                   warmup.  Has the original tube which as
                   far as I can tell must be optically contacted
                   or a very lucky sealing job because it does
                   not degrade on the shelf.  Nice large shiny
                   getter with only the slightest bit of erosion
                   around edge.  Dull gray paint job, almost
                   perfect on head, a few scuffs on
                   exciter.  Be the first on your planet to
                   own a very rare functionally excellent
                   sample of this historic laser directly
                   out of the stasis field preservation box!
    
     HENESP120-2  Above system with original SP polarizer,         1    $ 2,000.00
                   polarization rotator, and spatial filter.
    
     HUAHENE1-1   Non-functional Hughes 3178H laser head with      1      $ 250.00
                   working 3598 power supply.  Good cosmetic       Pic
                  condition with Hughes mount/shroud (attaches
                  via 1/4-20 thread, stand not included).  This
                  system dates from the mid 1970s.  You could
                  cheat and install a modern tube in the head
                  cylinder, but I don't want to know about it! :)
    
     HEAHENE2-1  Similar to above but with longer laser head       1      $ 275.00
                  and 3509H power supply.
    
     HUAHENE3-1  Really long Hughes 2-B HeNe laser head.  About    1          TBD
                  24" and black instead of gold but otherwise
                  similar to the ones above.  Head only.
    
     HENESP86-T1 These are Spectra-Physics 086-4 linearly          3      $ 50.00
                  polarized HeNe laser tubes used in some of      Pic
                  the earliest barcode scanners.  They are
                  unused in perfect operating condition
                  producing around 1 mW.  These are
                  hard-sealed, 25-30 years old but behave
                  like new.
    
     HENESP084-X DEAD SP-084 HeNe laser tubes.  Some assembly      -      $ 15.00
                  may be required as I've salvaged mirrors        Diagram
                  from some of these, but will include
                  suitable mirrors (good for display at
                  least) to glue back on.  These were used
                  some of the first barcode scanners as
                  earliest laser "pointers".
    
     HENESP86-H1 The complete head assembly containing the 086-4   1      $ 50.00
                  tube, above.  Except for the scrap value of the
                  aluminum cylinder, there's really no point in
                  getting this instead of a tube.  And the added
                  shipping cost probably balances that. :)
    
     ANTIQUE-2-B I have a variety of old and truly ancient 2-B     -        Make
                  HeNe laser tubes available.  Although none                 offer
                  are operational, some do light up and would
                  make very impressive wall displays. :)  A few
                  of these are over 40 years old!  Includes:
    
                  * SP-130 (NOS/new/mint, complete but up to air due to age). Pic
    
                  * SP-130 (NOS/new, unfinished, missing B-windows) Pic.
                  * SP-131 (NOS/new, unfinished, glass only) Pic.
                  * SP-131 (Missing B-windows) Pic A Pic B.
    
                  For display purposes, it would be very easy to
                  add windows using pieces of microscope slides.
    
                  The SP130/131s may be unique is using neon sign
                  electrode for the cathode rather than a hot
                  filament or aluminum cylinder.  These could be
                  the transition period and quite rare.
    
                  * SP-119 (Probably unused but up to air due to age).
    
                  * Assorted SP (neon sign type) electrodes. Pic.
    
     Antique-HN  Other old tubes include:
    
                  * Metrologic internal mirror tubes, various lengths (all glass,
                     NOT J-tube). Pic.
    
                  * Hughes internal mirror tubes, various lengths (some may lase
                     but are weak or hard start).  These have tiny three-screw
                     mirror adjusters built-in.  Pic
    
                  * Hughes 2-B tubes in cylinder (dead, some serious disassembly
                     required).  Pic
    
                  * NEC internal mirror tubes, various lengths.  Pic
    
     HENESP133-2  Spectra-Physics 133 HeNe laser with exciter.      1     $  25.00
                   Good exciter, high pressure tube works but
                   doesn't like to stay lit without cooling
                   and is low power.  Generally good cosmetic
                   condition.  The exciter can power a 3 to
                   4 mW HeNe laser tube if rewired for another
                   tube or head.  A thin (i.e., 1 inch diameter)
                   HeNe laser tube of conventional design can
                   be installed in the head without too much
                   trouble.  See Pic 1, Pic 2, Pic 3, Pic 4
                   for views of identical laser.
    
     SP-145-1     Spectra-Physics 145 laser head with 248           1       Make
                   exciter, circa 1980.  The output is                       offer
                   around 1.5 mW.  Good cosmetic condition.
                   Could be a nice collectible.
    
     ME620        Metrologic ME620 with separate linear power       1      $ 100.00
                   supply, circa 1978.  NON-WORKING.  The tube     Pic
                   is up to air and the power supply has low
                   starting voltage (but should be repairable).
                   Since the ME620 seems to not be common, this
                   would also be a nice collectible.  Very
                   good cosmetic condition.

                  The oven is matched to its dimensions and
                  seems to have a pair of 100 ohm heaters
                  and a 10K thermistor sensor.  It has been

     LW-SS100    Laserworks SS100 X-Y scanner unit.  This very      1     $ 100.00
                  nice 4x4x4 inch black anaodized aluminum      Front Back
                  box includes a pair of low speed scanners
                  with broadband aluminized mirrors, a beam
                  shutter, and emission LED.  Input to the
                  scanners is up to 5 V with a bandwidth of
                  perhaps 10 Hz at full voltage; 50-100 Hz
                  at 1 V.  Designed for a HeNe laser but
                  would work with any other narrow (1 or 2 mm)
                  beam.  The beam enters through a ~1/4"
                  hole on the side 1-7/8" from bottom.  There
                  is a standard 1/4-20 tapped hole for mounting.
                  This looks more like someone's high school
                  science fair project than a commercial
                  unit except for the professional labels and
                  that it is covered by U.S. patent: 4316648.
                  It should be quite useful and in a nice
                  box. :)

    Laser Testing/Repair Services

    I will attempt on a best efforts basis the following types of testing, adjustment, or repair on laser equipment. Quantity discounts may be available and prices may be negotiable. Payment in equipment rather than $$$ may also be possible. The customer is responsible for shipping both ways, including pickup for larger lasers like the LWE-221.

    Again this is on a BEST EFFORTS basis. I may ask you to sign a waiver to this effect. If your laser is irreplaceable, go to a real laser service company and pay the big bucks! For these lasers, other services may be available and for other lasers discussed in the Laser FAQ but not listed here, please ask. However, I will not deal with lasers requiring three-phase AC power (if they can't be converted to single phase) and/or a fork-lift to move! :)

    Where only testing options are listed, repair or restoration may be available on a time and materials basis. Please ask.

    Special note to eBay (or other) sellers: To honestly represent what you have available, it is really best to have it tested, and possibly adjusted for optimum performance. Sure, you can sell it "As Is" or "Powers Up but no further testing done". But if it's likely the equipment does work, then being able to list test results will bring in top dollar, easily 5X or 10X what the "as-is" high bid would be! Please contact me for special arrangements, trades, or other payment options on testing of lasers or components. For example, I will consider deals that include part of the payment based on net proceeds after auction expenses. Quantity discounts also available.

    And for buyers, it may be possible for you to negotiate to have testing done with acceptable results as a condition of sale.

     HENESRVC   Testing and mirror alignment (if necessary) of most
                 HeNe lasers:
    
                 Note: Where there is a possibility that the complaint is
                 actually due to a power supply failure or compatibility
                 issue, both the laser head/tube and power supply must be
                 provided for evaluation.
    
      * Test any internal mirror HeNe laser.  This means determining
         gas integrety, gas fill condition, starting, and likely
         cause of lasing problems (if any), as well as test of power
         supply if present, and determination of operating and dropout
         current (where relevant).  Minor mirror alignment (i.e., peaking
         power) is included if disassembly not required.
    
        - Small (less than 10 mW red).                                   $  25.00
        - Medium (10 to 20 mW red).                                      $  50.00
        - Large (20 to 35+ mW red).                                      $ 100.00
    
      * Same for external mirror HeNe lasers:
    
        - Small (e.g., SP-120, SP-122).                                  $ 100.00
        - Large (e.g., SP-124, SP-127, Siemens/LASOS LGK7676).           $ 250.00
          (Must be sent in shipping carton that can be used for
          return journey - minimum of 6 inches of padding all
          around.)
    
        Testing of similar physical size "other color" (including IR)
        HeNe lasers at same rates.
    
      * Major mirror alignment for HeNe lasers: Cost above, plus
        time at $100/hour.  This generally means there is no
        lasing and both mirrors may be misaligned.  Obviously, this
        won't be worth it for most lower power HeNe lasers.  And,
        there could of course be other problems.
    
      * Testing of most one-Brewster HeNe laser tubes using 99% OC       $  75.00
         mirror or customer supplied mirror.

         Includes optics cleaning and alignment.
    
      * Testing of HeNe laser power supplies.
    
        - Small (up to 3,500 V or for 15 mW HeNe laser).                 $  25.00
        - Large (including SP-255, SP-207).                              $  50.00
    
      * Hard start modification to enable Spectra-Physics model          $  50.00
        155 and similar HeNe lasers that are hard to start to start
        reliably.
    
        Note: For this to work, laser must stay on reliably but
        simply be hard to start cold or hot.
    
      * Installation of replacement tube or power supply in HeNe
        lasers including stabilized HeNe lasers.  Cost will depend
        on cost and availability of suitable parts, and the labor
        required for replacement, cleaning and alignment (if
        needed) and testing.
    
      * Repair of HeNe laser power supply.  Includes bricks and      50 percent of
        lab supplies.  Availability may depend on model and           new cost
        symptoms.  Email for details.

    Metrology Laser Service

    These are single-frequency or two-frequency HeNe lasers used in semiconductor wafer steppers, measurement and calibration systems, and other metrology applications. Manufacturers include Hewlett Packard/Agilent, Excel, Zygo, Mark-Tech, and others. For resellers, being able to state that, for example, an HP-5517C laser is "working and meets HP/Agilent specs with warranty" as opposed to "as-is, untested", can result in a selling price 10 times higher. I am set up to do quantity testing of these lasers, as well as many types of repairs. In addition, if you have a rebuilt metrology laser (or suspect that you do) or are a supplier of rebuilt metrology lasers, I am equipped to perform extensive testing to determine if it/they meet original manufacturer specifications. Inquire for more information or for lasers not listed below. Proposals welcome.

    In terms of repairs, while I cannot perform miracles (at least not on a regular basis), I can often extend the life of an otherwise useless laser at very modest cost with a variety of techniques including some that companies like HP/Agilent won't acknowledge exist because they would prefer you buy an expensive new laser. This may provide at least a few more months of service in a 24/7 application or years if powered up on-demand.

         Excel, and other metrology lasers.  This will restore
         stable output if the laser power is still satisfactory.
         If laser is not salvageable with either the power being
         too low or requiring too much tube current to be stable,
         the charge will only be for evaluation.  Anecdotal
         evidence suggests that this will allow the laser to
         be usable for a minimum of several months in continuous
         operation or *years* if only turned on when needed.
    
       * Repair of "flickering tube syndrome" in 5500A/C, and               Ask
         5501A.
    
       * HP/Agilent or Zygo 7705 laser REF frequency                     $ 250.00
         reduction surgery.  This will allow a laser whose REF
         frequency is either out of spec (due to being high
         mileage), or is simply higher than required to work
         in a finicky machine that complains if the REF
         frequency exceeds the spec'd maximum to be put back
         into service.  For the outcome to be successful, the
         laser must be otherwise healthy with acceptable output
         power, and reliable and stable locking.  What's done
         will not affect alignment and is totally reversible
         if needed.  And output power may increase slightly.
    
       * HP/Agilent 5517B or 5517C laser REF frequency                   $ 250.00
         boost surgery.  This could permit a 5517B to meet
         5517C specs or a 5517C to meet 5517D specs.
         For the outcome to be successful, the laser must
         be healthy with acceptable output power, and reliable
         and stable locking.  The output power may end up
         slightly lower, so if marginal to begin with, this
         is not recommended.  The chance of success depends
         on the particular laser and cannot be predicted
         without testing.  But it is generally higher for
         the 5517B to 5517C conversion simply because the
         increase in REF is less.  If unsuccessful, the
         charge is only $175 but REF may end up as much as
         0.1 MHz lower than it was originally, which is not
         likely to be a problem.
    
       * Replacement of 5501B tube with 5517B tube.  This will           $ 500.00
         create a laser identical to a 5501B including the                 + Parts
         REF frequency.  The required "Parts" are the 5517B
         laser tube and 5501B body.  If provided by the customer,
         additional evaluation charges may apply.
    
       * Modification of 5517B to meet 5501B specs including             $ 500.00
         REF and orientation of F1/F2.  The result will be                 + Parts
         indistinguishable from a 5501B except for the
         backplate connectors and that the tube will come
         on immediately like a 5517.  The required "Parts"
         are the 5517B laser.  If provided by the customer,
         additional evaluation charges may apply.
    
       * Excel 1001A/B/F laser tuneup.  Includes basic testing           $ 500.00
         as well as adjustment to restore laser as close to
         original specifications as possible.
    
       * Excel rebuild.  Installation of healthy used tube              $ 1250.00
          into 1001A/B/F laser.
    
       * Basic testing of refurbished or rebuilt HP/Agilent, or
         Zygo, or other metrology lasers.  "Refurbished or
         rebuilt" means work done to the laser which may involve
         installation of a new non-original tube, or regasing
         of the tube.  This includes the same tests as for
         virgin :) metrology lasers, above, as well as specific
         tests for parameters that might be suspect in rebuilt
         lasers.
    
           First laser                                                   $ 275.00

                efficiency, 5-10 point listing of current versus
                output power from threshold to rated power, calibration
                of monitor photodiode (if present), and burn-in at

                specifications are known!  Determining unknown diode
                specs including wavelength is extra. :)  All testing
                performed using LDC-3900 laser diode controller with
                TEC temperature control except for really high power
                diodes (requiring more than 4 amps) which is done with my
                custom-built 100 amp laser diode driver and tap water
                cooling.  This applies to bare (e.g., can or C-mount),
                collimated, or fiber-coupled diodes with 2 to 4 pins;
                those with built-in TECs or other options may be extra
                based on time to construct wiring harness.

      * C215M laser head test, adjust for rated power or if weak, set    $ 125.00
         power 10 percent below the diode current limit, or to power
         of your choice where possible.  Report will include actual
         measured power and diode current.  Clean window and confirm
         acceptable beam quality.  Testing is performed using known
         good Coherent Analog Controller.
    
      * C215M laser system test.  Same as above using customer           $ 100.00
         supplied Analog Controller.

         resistances to within 1 ohm as displayed on the LDC-3900,
         diode current, and actual output power.  Note: Will require
         removing 10K thermistor pullup resistors on head PCB for
         best accuracy.  Assuming you will be powering this with

         Note: This is only likely to be successful if the laser
         head shows some green light inside when powered (even
         if it cuts out after a few seconds).  Where there is no
         green lasing at all, minor repair is almost certainly not
         possible.  More complex minor repair (e.g., multiple parts)

    Note: The following thermocouple vacuum gauges are guaranteed to be functional
    but may require calibration if sold without a TC gauge tube since despite what
    the manufacturer claims, there is some variation from one tube to the next,
    especially if they have been used to measure vacuum in an Amazon rain
    forest. :)  Calibration is trivial if your vacuum system can go down
    to near 0 Torr.  If sold with a tube, I will test and calibrate if needed.
    
     DV-6R       Teledyne Hastings DV-6R thermocouple vacuum         1   $  65.00
                  gauge tube.  Used, tested.  These are the
                  ruggedized version of the DV-6M for use with
                  the VT-6 and CVT-6.
    
     DV-4AM      Teledyne Hastings DV-4AM thermocouple vacuum        1   $  35.00
                  gauge tube.  Used, tested.  These will work
                  with the VT-4 and CVT-4 though I'm not sure
                  how close the calibration is compared to
                  the DV-4D.

                  is the stainless/ceramic high pressure high     Pic 2
                  temperature version of the DV-4D.  It uses
                  a funny 4 pin DIN-style connector but is
                  otherwise fully compatible.  Useful range
                  of 0.1 to 20 Torr, fast response.  List
                  price from Hastings Instruments is $289.
                  (Adapter to cable or octal base can be
                  built for about $2, no need to spend the
                  $125 Hastings charges.)  Feel free to

                  in otherwise excellent condition and
                  the electronics are functional.  Note
                  that this unit will work as a TC vacuum
                  gauge readout equivalent to a VT-6A in
                  its current condition, some reassembly
                  required though.  I guarantee that the
                  printed scale looks good. :)
    
     THGAUGE-1   General Electric model 22-GC-310 thermistor         1   $  15.00

                  sensor.  Unit is in fair to good cosmetic       Pic 2
                  condition (a few scrapes on the case and the
                  edge of the meter but doesn't interfere
                  with functionality) and appears to work
                  (meter pegs to right-end when powered) but I
                  have no way to fully test beyond this.
                  (I may decide not to sell if I find a mating
                  thermistor sensor.)  Also, I'd appreciate

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     VARHV1      Ultra Lasertech high voltage power supply.         1     $ 125.00
                  Adjustable from 0 to about 15 kV (at 115 VAC
                  in).  Meters read 25 kV full scale and 10 mA
                  full scale.  Variac to control output voltage
                  so - regulation, but it's probably fairly
                  robust against accidents.  Note: There is an
                  interlock relay missing, would need to
                  replace or bypass.  This is a HEAVY unit,
                  probably 40-50 pounds, fully enclosed 19"
                  rack-size box.  Prefer pickup in Phila area,
                  but will ship.

                  gap, part of arc lamp igniter from a Hughes/JVC
                  100 video projector.  Requires source of 10 kV
                  or more at low current to trigger and generate
                  32 kV output pulse.  (Originally, a HeNe laser
                  power supply provided the HV but that has
                  better uses!)  This thing would work well for
                  starting almost any size ion laser or arc lamp.
                  Excellent condition.  (Complete unit may be
                  available, please ask.)
    
     HVP-1208A   Toyo Corporation (Japan) high voltage power        1    $  150.00

                  26 VDC, 2.5 A max.  Outputs: 25 kVDC,
                  1.1 mA max; 4.5 to 7.65 kVDC, 15 uA max; and
                  200 to 1,000 VDC, 5 uA max.  This is the CRT
                  high voltage power supply used in various
                  Monitronix monitors (EZ, etc.).  It would also
                  make a very nice general HV source.  Internal
                  adjustments permit output to 32 kV.  Removed
                  from working equipment.  It's a metal cased
                  high frequency inverter, about 5"x6"x2".

                  brands and outputs.  Tested with hookup
                  instructions.  Usually, these put out
                  3-6 kV at a few hundred microamps.  Some
                  have more than one output.  I'll try to

     HVU173      Sanyo High Voltage Unit.  This is the HV           6    $   10.00
                  power supply from a laser printer or
                  copier.  Outputs of -6.0 kVDC at 0.45 mA,
                  +4.5 kVDC at 0.1 mA, and -350 VDC at 0.35 mA.
                  All outputs are adjustable a bit.  Input of
                  around 24 VDC.  Individual enables for each
                  HV output.  Also has an auxiliary +5 VDC
                  regulated 1 A output with its own input.
                  Wiring information will be provided.
                  These are NOS in original wrapping.  Could
                  be nice for an air purifier, ozone generator,
                  or similar application (10.5 kV between HV
                  outputs), or a replacement for that laser
                  printer or copier it was destined for. :)

                  unit outputting 0 to +20 kV and 0 to -20 kV
                  at up to 15 mA intended for an ion implanter.
                  It appears to be either very lightly used or
                  a spare.  Excellent functional and cosmetic
                  condition.  I have modified it for operation
                  on 115 AC (was 230 VAC) and to enable the
                  variable current limit function (2 resistors
                  on each PCB) but can easily be restored for
                  use in original application.  It may be used
                  as two independent variable high voltage power
                  supplies by rewiring the backpanel-to-PCB
                  cables.  Complete documentation available.
                  Note: This is an OEM supply with only a
                  power switch on the front panel.  Control
                  and monitoring is via a backpanel connector.              
                  However, construction of a user control panel
                  would be straightforward.

     2N7236      P-Channel 100 V, 18 A, 125 W power MOSFET,         >10  $   TBD
                  TO-254AA gold plated metal isolated hermetic
                  package.  Never used (NOS) in original cute
                  antistatic plastic box.  These are MIL-Spec
                  devices with individual serial numbers and
                  we the tax-payers probably paid a fortune for
                  them!  The International Rectifier equivalent
                  is IRFM9140.  DigiKey has commercial version
                  in very boring plastic TO-247 package (IRFP-9140)
                  for about $10 each but these are so much more way
                  cool. :)  Even if you don't know what a MOSFET
                  is, they are worth framing. :) Otherwise, great
                  for motor or thermoelectric controllers, maybe
                  even super high power laser diode drivers,
                  or other high current applications.  (The
                  actual part number is 20036291P1 on package
                  but device itself is marked 2N7236.)

               A few complementary pairs of these would probably also
               be good for your next power audio project.  They would
               really look nice in a high-end amplifier behind glass
               in their gold plated package with stainless steel welded
               cover.  Perhaps even add a mini-laser show inside the
               amp to complement the great sound.  None of that cheap
               plastic transistor nonsense!
    
               Note for the 2N7218s: I need to confirm these specs as the
               parts are only marked with the house number.  I've only
               confirmed the polarity with a VOM and moist finger.  If
               anyone has more info, please let me know via email.  I
               may have to resort to a curve tracer though.

                  *prototype* TMX chips.  (Though prototypes,
                  they are essentially fully functional with only
                  minor quirks.)  These should probably
                  be in the antiques section (1994 date code) but
                  might be of interest to someone needing
                  spares for one of those never ending
                  projects or as a desk ornament - pop the
                  cover and the chip is still impressive even
                  by today's standards.  Most of these are
                  never used (NOS) from a project that got
                  canned.  Some were tested but I guarantee that
                  most of the CPU cycles are still there. :)
                  These cost $1,300 each, new.  If course, now
                  they probably aren't worth their weight in

     PILDSLDR1    Complete slider assembly from Pioneer HeNe         2  $  100.00
                   laser-based LD players like the models

                   player.  Though, buying a complete LD player
                   on eBay for 1/3rd of this price including
                   shipping would be a much more sane approach!
                   Lots of neat laser and optics goodies though
                   including a guaranteed healthy 1-1.5 mW HeNe
                   laser tube (either in the slider or packed
                   separately), a second weak HeNe laser tube
                   (either packed separately or in the slider),
                   mirrors, lenses, polarizing beam splitter

    Magnets

    Well, at least they are from electronic equipment. :) These are rare earth magnets from older high performance hard drives. All are perfect magnetically but may have some chipped paint. All magnets are N/S on large faces. These magnets are so strong that they cannot be pulled apart, they must be slid sideways. I will ask you to sign a DISCLAIMER form since they can damage flesh and destroy computer media from a considerable distance. These are much nastier than anything found in a modern hard drive due to their size.

    Note: I may have to add a combat surcharge to orders for these magnets. Trying to pry them loose from their buddies is a real treat capable of serious injury!

     PIN-6955    Silicon photodiode with built-in preamp            10   $  10.00

                  Very sensitive to light, about 50 nanowatts
                  (at 633 nm) for full scale output.  This may
                  be a custom part made for Wyatt Corp.  Pulled
                  from working equipment.  This device appears
                  similar to UDT-455.  See: UDT Photops Page.
                  However, note that being in a 4 pin package,
                  this is a fixed gain (very high) but low
                  bandwidth part.  If it's not running

                  end also has a switch that detects pressure when
                  touched to the screen.  You'll know exactly what

     5016A       U.S. Army Dynamotor Unit type 5016A manufactured    1      Make
                  by Bendix.  Input: 28 VDC, 10.5 A max. Outputs:            offer

                  A "Dyanmotor" is a motor-generator with multiple
                  sets of windings and commutators on a common
                  armature.  Just what you need for your plane or
                  boat to power that old tube radio.  Come to think
                  of it, your plane wouldn't get off the ground
                  with this thing on board but it would make a 
                  good boat anchor.  I guess that's why it is U.S.
                  Army - tanks don't worry about mass. :)  I will
                  test it if there is serious interest but it worked
                  a couple decades ago and the armature spins now
                  so it is probably fully functional to original
                  specifications.  As an added bonus, it comes with
                  a spare set of carbon brushes.

                   who cares?  Cool mechanisms and strong magnets.
                   I'm gradually discombobulating these for parts
                   so get'em while you can. :)

                   I think though the floppy drive probably                  offer
                   needs to be cleaned and lubed again.

                   to be unstuck (I did it once before) but
                   should work.

     PLANAR1      Craftsman 4" Joiner/Planar model                   1   $  50.00
                   113.21861, NO MOTOR.  This is an old
                   but very well built cast iron unit.
                   Knives are in good condition and
                   freshly sharpened.  Bare cast iron
                   surfaces could use a bit of polishing
                   but no real rust.  Will require
                   a 1/4 to 1/2 HP induction motor,
                   pulley, V-belt, and motor mount.
                   This is just the planar itself, 
                   28"x9"x9" with adjustable height
                   and fence and blade guard.  This
                   works well but I recycled the
                   cart on which it was mounted for
                   other purposes. :)  Motor available,
                   see below.
    
     SANDER1      4" belt sander/8" disk sander, mfg.                1     Make
                   and model unknown, NO MOTOR.  Heavy                      offer
                   cast iron, includes medium grit
                   belt in almost new condition and
                   well used coarser grit belt.  Vertical
                   or horizontal with fence.  Bearings
                   are somewhat worn but usable.  Will
                   require a 1/4 to 1/2 HP induction motor,
                   pulley, V-belt, and motor mount.
                   This is just the sander itself.  Motor
                   available, see below.
    
     SCROLSAW1    Really old scroll saw head, mfg. and               1     Make
                   model unknown, NO MOTOR.  Cast iron                      offer
                   with blade, hold down.  12" throat.  Will
                   require a 1/4 to 1/2 HP induction motor,
                   pulley, V-belt, and motor mount.  This
                   is just the saw itself.  This may have
                   more antique value than being a useful
                   tool.  Motor available, see below.
    
     INDMOTOR1    Ugly but functional 1/3 to 1/2 HP 1735 rpm         3   $  15.00
                   split phase or capacitor start induction
                   motor for above.  Sleeve bearings, 115 VAC,
                   60 Hz.  Includes mount and grounded cord
                   with three prong plug.

     HP3440A-M   Operating and Service Manual for HP-3440A          1    $  25.00

                  a PDF - in excellent condition.
    
     GR1191B     General Radio 1191B 35 MHz 8 digit frequency       1     $125.00
                  counter.  Good bright Nixies.  Case is
                  somewhat beat up but tender loving care
                  would probably take care of most of it.
                  Appears to work fine.  Service information
                  may be available.
    
     HP59501B     HP-IB Isolated D/A Power Supply Programmer.       1      Make
                   Very good cosmetic condition.  Powers up                 offer
                   but otherwise untested since I have no idea
                   what this does.
    
     B321         Ballantine RAP (RMS, Average, Peak) AC            1      Make
                   Voltmeter.  Analog mirrored meter,                       offer
                   vacuum tubes inside. :)  Ranges from
                   0.3 mV to 300 V full scale.  Somewhat
                   beat case, needs a good cleaning inside
                   but basically works.  No probe (I have
                   no idea what it takes).  Just what
                   everyone needs for that museum.
    
     HP-415E      Hewlett Packard SWR meter model 415E.             1      Make
                   Powers up but unable to test further.                    offer
    
     HP-431B      Hewlett Packard power meter model 431B.           1      Make
                   Powers up but unable to test further.                    offer
                   No sensor or power cord.
    
     MIC-FSM      Micronta model 21-525B Field Strength/SWR         1    $  10.00
                   Tester.  Removable antenna for field strength;
                   screw-type coax connectors for TRANS and ANT
                   for SWR.  Very good condition, nothing burned
                   or broken, meter works, but that is the extent
                   of my testing.
    
     SUPCRT-1     Superior Instruments Company CRT tester.  This    1    $  15.00
                   is probably only useful as a collectible since  Pic
                   it has one socket for a CRT type that probably
                   hasn't been manufactured in 35 years.  Settings
                   for cathode, control grid, screen, 1st anode,
                   and filament.
                   
     VATEMPC      Valhalla (whoever they are!) temperature probe     1   $  25.00
                   for DMMs with a range that reads out in mV for
                   the LSB.  Uses 9 V battery (not included).
    
     TEK529R      Tektronix model 529 TV waveform monitor,           1     Make
                   rackmount.  Appears to work but could really             offer
                   use a good cleaning and calibration.  This
                   is a classic and a must for any NTSC TV
                   studio or editing facility if such things
                   exist anymore.
    
     TEK529N      Same as above but non-rackmount, no cover.         1     Make
                   Nice bright trace.                                       offer
    
     TEK564       Tektronix 564 storage oscilloscope, 10 MHz         1     Make
                   vertical bandwidth.  With dual trace                     offer
                   vertical plugin and spare (may need work),
                   with original operation and service manual
                   in very good condition, available by itself
                   but at an additional charge. :)  A classic.
                   I will test but may not work at this point,
                   probably needing filter caps replaces.  Pick
                   up in Phila area only.
    
     HEATHIO-14   Heathkit model IO-14 5 MHz single trace            1     Make
                   oscilloscope.  I built this from a kit                   offer
                   over 30 years ago.  Will test if there is
                   any interest.  Includes original assembly
                   and operation manual with genuine Sam
                   scribbling.  Actually used very little.
                   Pick up in Philadelphia area only.
    	       
     HEATHS3      Heathkit dual trace switch model S-3.  This        1     Make
                   thing takes your single trace scope and                  offer
                   make it dual trace, supposedly, at audio
                   frequencies at least.  Untested.
    
     WTFG1        Wavetek model 159 Waveform Generator,              1     Make
                   rackmount (19"x5-1/4"), KB selection                     offer
                   with some sort of non-standard digital
                   interface as well, 15 pin Molex-type
                   connector on rear panel).  This is NOT a
                   PLL synthesizer but just a collection of
                   op-amps and reed relays.  It goes up to
                   a couple MHz with decent waveshape.
                   However, without computer control, this
                   is an absolute !@#$ to set up since the
                   KB isn't latched - hit any number and the
                   output changes!  Case is beat up with
                   bracket/handle broken on one side.  In
                   other words, it's basically a piece of
                   junk but now works well since I replaced
                   all the ceramic bypass caps.  It does
                   have a nice display and fills a 5-1/4"
                   rack space very snugly. :)
    
     WTPM1        Wavetek model 740 phase meter.  This               1     Make
                   thing is supposed to compare the phase                   offer
                   of a pair of signals and display the
                   lead or lag angle on an analog meter.
                   I'm not sure why anyone would want one
                   of these except for a Wavetek museum
                   but here it is.  Needs work as the
                   meter needle never settles down.
                   Possibly, the same ceramic cap problem
                   as in the 159, above.  Since I can't
                   think of anything I would use it for,
                   I have no intention of fixing it.
    
     RCAWR64A     RCA model WR-64A color bar/dot/crosshatch           1     Make
                   generator in absolutely positively mint                   offer
                   physical condition.  It did work when I
                   tried it a few years ago.  This is a classic
                   vacuum tube based instrument that would be
                   the perfect complement to that EICO VTVM
                   for your state-of-the-art consumer
                   electronics repair bench.  In original box
                   complete with operation and service manual
                   and RCA brochure should you wish to purchase
                   other advanced RCA test equipment.  Time
                   machine access codes sold separately. :)  And
                   as a free bonus, you also get the service
                   info for the RCA 21-CT-7835(U) and similar
                   chassis, somewhat tattered but appears
                   complete, circa 1957.
    
     EICO482      This dual trace scope was working 15 or 20        1        Free
                   years ago and has sat ever since.  Good
                   CRT.  I powered it up recently but there
                   was no trace though I think I was able to
                   get something on the screen.  But no
                   guarantees other than that it's inc oomplete
                   and in decent physical condition with no
                   obviously blown up parts.  Includes service
                   mannual with complete schematics.
    
                   If you'd like a fun challenge, this is for
                   you.  If on the other hand you just want a
                   working scope, go to eBay, since you'll
                   probably need a working scope to fix this
                   one anyhow. :)
    
                   I was going to put it on the curb but just
                   wasn't able to throw a scope away so it's
                   back here for now. :)  Pay shipping and
                   its yours!
    
     EICO232      EICO model 232 vacuum tube voltmeter in like        1     Make
                   new condition.  I built this from a kit more              offer

                   probe and manual.

    Heathkit model PS-3 regulated power powe               available current depends on output voltage.
                   There is also a 6.3 VAC, 4 A, output for vacuum
                   tube filaments.  Someone added a fuse in the
                   high voltage line which is a nice feature (if
                   a bit ugly).  This makes a decent strobe
                   capacitor charger or more likely if you're
                   considering it, something to test old tube
                   radios.  Includes copy of user manual and
                   schematics.

     BREP44       Ancient Brother model EP44 self contained          1       Make

                   Pre-laptop, maybe pre-dinosaur. :) Actually,  Pic
                   calling it a word processor is probably
                   generous.  It's sort of like a small thermal
                   dot matrix printer that works with plain paper
                   (includes almost new ribbon), keyboard, and
                   short 1 or 2 line LCD display, DB25 RS232
                   connector, about 10x12x2" overall when closed,
                   with cover.  Some call the EP44 a personal
                   printer.  Apparently, it has been popular for
                   use as a test terminal.  Runs on 6 VDC from
                   adapter (not included) or 4 Alkaline D cells.

                   have some dried up capacitors replaced.
                   This is a classic.

                   unique pre-Nixie incandescent display.  It     Front
                   consists of individual #328 bulbs side-        Rear
                   illuminating Plexiglas sheets with each
                   numeral milled 1" high.  With the addition
                   of an orange-red filter (not included), it
                   would have the appearance of a Nixie
                   display since the plane of the display
                   depends on numeral.  It consists of 4 complete
                   digits (right 3 with decimal point) and +/-.
                   Generally good condition though the wiring
                   to some of the bulbs could stand to be
                   touched up.  The perfect addition to your

                   cap) and the vertical collapsed to a 2"
                   height.  I will confirm that it is still in

                   interested.  Pick up in Philadelphia area only.

                   without being chopped up into little pieces. :)
                   Note: Widescreen means that the top and bottom
                   of the screen is blank when played on an older
                   (4:3 aspect ratio) TV so that everything looks
                   normal but only fills part of the screen.  All
                   are NTSC, extended play (CLV).  On a modern flat

                  At least some of these don't necessarily
                  reflect my tastes in movies.  No comments

    Wanted to Acquire

    These are mostly items I'm interested in for personal use and go toward enhancing the FAQs. Therefore, the prices have to be very low or free so offers of lasers at 10 percent off of manufacturer's list don't qualify! :) Trades will be considered. Also see the section of Sam's Laser FAQ: Please Don't Scrap Your Unwanted or Broken Lasers or Laser Related Equipment and Parts! and Request for Computer Resources in Support of Sam's Laser FAQ Development.

    If in doubt about whether I might want that pallet of laser power supplies you're about to send to the crusher, please ask! :) Even if I don't want them, I may know someone who does - and even pay! I may be contacted via the email link near the beginning of this document.

    Lasers and Optics

    I am interested in laser related equipment, parts, and supplies in almost any condition as long as it isn't totally mangled or burnt to a crisp. And, even then, parts might be salvageable. :) The only restriction is that complete systems must not require a fork-lift to move and run on single phase 115 or 230 VAC or some form of DC - from batteries up to 100 kV. :)

    The following are in no particular order except maybe the first few with most recent interests at the top:

    Optical Instruments/Parts

    I am interested in monochronometers, interferometers, autocollimators, and other interesting optical instruments or parts (like diffraction gratings), in almost any condition. This could include even more sophisticated equipment like optical spectrum analyzers and wavemeters, at the right price!

    Some specific items include:

    Laser/Optics Manuals

    High Voltage Equipment and Parts

    High Vacuum Equipment and Accessories

    Consumer Electronics

    Electronic Test Equipment

    Electronic Test Equipment Manuals

    I am looking for operation and service manuals including schematics or just schematics for specific pieces of test equipment. Clean originals would be most desirable but I will pay reasonable photocopying and snail mail costs, or possibly something in trade. Many PDF versions tend to be only marginally legible and true original or excellent copy is really preferable! :) The following are in no particular order.

    Consumer/Industrial Electronics Manuals

    PCB Fabrication

    I have several small printed circuit board designs in Gerber format that I need fabbed in multiple quantities. They are for the Coherent C315M laser. I know I can go to a Web PCB fab service company and get these but if you are doing a PCB run and can shoehorn a bunch of step-and-repeat 1 to 2 inch square two sided or 4 layer PTH PCBs onto a corner of your artwork without incurring significant additional cost, maybe we can trade for something if you don't think the info in the FAQs and copies of these or other C315M related PCBs is sufficient compensation. :) I'll provide artwork of the individual or multiple PCBs as desired.
