Thunder Laser USA Beam Buddy HR Head Information & Instructions

this image may differ slightly from the current model



Our Thunder Laser USA Beam Buddy High Resolution Head is manufactured in Canada to our specifications and this head performs a bit better than the stock Thunder HR Head. More on that here:

Exploded Assembly Order

Note that the upper and lower lens are not the same and both should be "dome up, away from the honeycomb" when installed.

Focal Length

The nominal focal distance between the surface of the substrate and the bottom face of the head is 3mm.
We will soon include a focus tool with the head.
The file to cut one from 3mm material is attached to this article if you want to make your own.

Many just use a US Quarter as a focus gauge and have fabulous results.
