Hi
Everybody,


I just finished ordering another 1000 diffraction
glasses from Rainbow Symphony.=A0


http://www.rainbowsymphonystore.com/fi=
reworks-glasses.html


They are great to hand out at demo shows and even
to classes if the numbers are right. We use them
often enough to warrant buying large(ish)
quantities.=A0


Unfortunately most of their glasses are double
axis gratings, which can be confusing for students
and the public. The do sell linear 500 lines/mm
glasses that are almost perfect for demonstration
purposes, but they're a little spendy. In a perfect
world I'd have the linear gratings in the hand-held
style glasses ( http://www.rainbowsymphonysto=
re.com/digrglhahest1.html
).=A0


Here's the catch: I inquired about the
possibility of having them made, and they sure can,
but they print in sheets of 26,000 (haha). It might
take us a while to get through those on our own. So
I wanted to throw out the possibility of a group
purchase! I bet if we bought the whole batch they'd
sell them for maybe 10 or 15 cents apiece (or less),
and if we had enough schools interested, we could
potentially get 1000 glasses each for like $100! Not
a bad deal for the fun they can provide. I intend to
inquire with a few other manufacturers too.


Any interest? Stan is in Sweden on sabbatical and
has some interested folks out there as well. I think
this could be a great deal!=A0Strength in numbers,
right?


Till Then,

BAM!
