New toy at the hive!

December 5th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

A few of our members stopped up at the UC surplus sale on saturday and picked up a couple of largeish projectors.  One of them had a working bulb and a bad powersupply ($25), the other had a bad bulb ($50).

After moving the bulb from the projector with a bad powersupply to the projector that just had a bad bulb we discovered that we now had a very nice working projector.

This should provide a nice start for our Laser Graffitti projects, also, we still have the other projector that needs a new powersupply but could serve as the base for testing more powerful light sources.
