I recently purchased a Spyder Arctic III 445nm Blue Laser from Wicked Lasers. It was always my intention to rebuild the diode in a more suitable enclosure with a driver so that it could be used for something a bit more useful than waving around like a Li[Shhh!!! - Don't mention the 'L' word - Ed]ber.
So surprisingly it turns out to be cheaper and easier to just have a fresh diode fitted inside a driver.
So THAT means I have a shiny new Spyder Arctic III for sale – total run time of 90 seconds on the diode – just enough to take some basic measurements and shoot a short movie.
Comes complete with safety glasses, charger, instructions, safety lens, 2 batteries and all original packaging. Retail price is $299 – yours for $200 + shipping.
(BONUS : Shipping is from the US, so you don’t have to wait for weeks and weeks (and weeks) the way I did!)
