The LCC is looking for someone to build a laser chiller for VHS.
Homemade chillers are often built by homebrewers.
The VHS laser tube is on its last legs so the LCC has purchased a brand new 90W RECI tube which just arrived this Tues June 21, 2022.
The current laser chiller was built in 2016. → VHS Wiki Chiller Build Documentation.
After 6 years the laser chiller is rusting and we’d rather not pump rusty cooling water through the new tube so before installing this new tube we’d like to build a new chiller.
The current LCC members are all swamped (new kids, life, work etc) and/or lack the specific skillset for this build so we are reaching out to any members who might be able to take on this task.
If we can’t find anyone to take this on then the LCC will start evaluating commercial chillers.
The VHS Chiller is similar to this:
