Can anyone suggest where I can buy a 1 watt pigtailed laser in the UK. I would prefer a "shop online" source. I have been looking for quite a while but I think in the UK they think everyone is a potential terrorist and doesn't want to sell this sort of stuff. European sourcing is also an option.

I want to try some laser sintering of nylon and this size of laser seems about the best. I'm looking to spend no more than about £250 or so.

Is there also a supplier for safety glasses.

Has anyone tried a cluster of laser diodes as these are much cheaper and would overcome the legal issues in some counties. I'm thinking of maybe four focussed on a single point.
