Hi gary

yes i am i am not good in the cold ...but today was good so i ventured out to experiment again.

Well after what you said about the laws i was not expecting my laser from china,it came and i found it funny the customs sticker was filled out Green in English the rest was all in chinese .

Mines a 50mv and sure looks like it ,yep dangerous to the eyes for sure .

Also i agree jaycar 10mv green version yes near on 100 bucks a rip off mine was 20 free postage.

I like that free postage - don't know how they do it - normally freight is more than the cost of the item - they must be able to put it in a big container with lots of other stuff, but even then it has to come from the port by post and Australian Post is one of the most expensive in the world. I bought an optical mouse the other month $2.38 free postage - they can't possibly be making anything on it.
Perfecting an NBTV system is like trying to slam a revolving door...

Yes some are free some charge a bit more for the same laser works out about the same mine was a buy now .

Did take a while i think 3 weeks or so so i would say it came via a ship .

The chinese make some good stuff cheap on the net too which means if you can not match it you loose perhaps their plan ...

For me it was either near on 100 dollars for a 10mv green laser from jaycar or 20 dollars for a 50 mv from them ,i had to wait but saved me a lot.
