    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Nicely made laser

    Can re-use the lens for other lasers / purposes

    Nice metal housing

    Can get a reasonably fine focussed line

    Price !!!

    Cons:

    The inner focus mechanism isn't particulaly tight. If you over tighten the outer ring, the inner can loosen up. Nothing a bit of PTFE tape won't solve if this happens.

    Can be a bit bright for close up work

    OtherThoughts:

    If you do mess up the focus, take off the outer lens by unscrewing the metal ring, take out the inner plastic lens holder and wrap with a couple of turns of PTFE. Apply power and focus the inner lens until you get a nice sharp dot a the distance you're intending to use the laser at. Then carefully screw the outer lens (which gives you the cross) back on and everything is fine and dandy again :)

    Bottomline:

    Don't dither - its a good laser so buy one !
