Mystery laser device

I just acquired a very peculiar laser:

I guess somebody thought it would look cool.

It was a shame to have to disassemble it but I wanted the laser for my collection:

It was actually well-built. The frame is made of aluminum angle bolted together. Underneath all that duct tape and aluminum tape there was a good sized Melles-Griot head and a high-power laser supply. To top it off, the PanaVise it's mounted on came with it! Quite a bargain at <$75. Hamfest pricing. The vise and the head are each easily worth that and the power supply would go for at least $100. Too bad I was the only person who bid on it. You snooze you lose.
