Cool Another Australian coming through!

Hey all!

My name is Peter and I live in NSW, Australia. I have been pouring through this forum the last few days to get a general idea about lasers, how they work, and exactly what type of laser I will be wanting. I've had an interest in lasers all my life, and it has been one of many things on my mental list of awesome things to try out/do.

Just to give you an idea, past projects have been things like:
  • Modding nerf guns (when I was much younger, this is what started the whole 'home projects' obsession that I have now)
  • Building a PC
  • Building a cannon (that shoots anything of a certain diameter)
  • Cutting wine bottles into cool drinking glasses
  • Making gunpowder
  • Making coloured fire (green, purple, blue, you name it)
  • 3D modelling and animation in a few well known programs
  • Devising a 'safe' way of lighting your hands on fire

Those are just some things off the top of my head from the past year or two. I generally get up to these things during the holidays to keep me occupied, and seeing as the Christmas holidays are coming up here I am

The community here seems absolutely incredible from what I've seen so far, so I'm excited to get involved! I also have a few specific-ish questions that I would like to ask but I'm assuming that it wouldn't be appreciated if I asked them here (seeing as this is the welcome board.)

But yeah! That's a brief summary of me and I'm keen to get my first laser build in action



Sorry... I just had to, that emoticon is too awesome xD

Family tradition for Thanksgiving. Fill your mouth with whipped cream, let it tower up like in the pic, then try to inhale and eat it all without it falling.
