Help on Laser

I need a new laser for my Monster holloing system.  Does anyone know where I would get a replacement laser and what the specs would be on it?

search on ebay for something like:

Red Laser Diode Module 650nm 6mm 3V 5mW Dot

I buy them in 5 pack quantities and mount them in epoxy to fit what ever holder I have.  Hook them up to a 3 v pack (2 AAA batteries) with a switch and you are good to go for under $10.

look for a Quarton Laser Module VLM-650-03 LPA. Almost an exact replacement for the Monster. Slightly smaller diameter than the original. I used a tiny piece of brass tube from the hobby shop to make it an exact fit. The laser goes inside the short length of brass tube. Then the tube/laser goes into the Monster laser holder.
