Default Good Afternoon

Hello everyone. I'm Phil, and I'm pretty sure I'm part moth. I was browsing youtube the other day when I came across a DIY video showing how to turn a green 5mw laser into a 100mw laser by heating a resistor on the laser. I was immediately hooked. I poked around some more until I found a link to these forums, and I've been lurking and reading for the past couple of days. I have to admit I'm pretty overwhelmed! I had no idea that laser technology was as developed and inexpensive as it now appears to be. I don't even know where to start! Well anyways, It's been a real treat to find a new home, and I hope to get started in the near future.

Welcome to the Forum...

There is a wealth of Laser related info here... all you need to do
to access it is..... Read.... Read.... and read some more...

Don't forget to read the New Members stickies...

The [Search] button is your friend....

To start with.... forget about buying a 5mW green Laser and making a
100mW monster with it.... The best you will get is a dead stick...
Running a 12volt light bulb on 110volt house current will get you a very
bright light for a very... very.... short time...

Yeah, I did a little poking around and found out the laser pen in that video was a special case. Oh well. I've been burning through the LEOT course pages and a beginner's electronics textbook. There's a shop in town that sells lasers (and maybe what I need to build them), so I'm headed out there later today to take a look around. My main problem right now is that I'm unemployed and in alot of debt. I don't see myself being able to make anything until the end of the year :'( which will give me plenty of time to read.

Do we have a chatroom around here? I was thinking a simple java chatroom would be kind of neat.

"Don't need no stinking chatroom".... J/K... ;D

Check in the B/S/T section for Laser related parts and complete
laser builds and kits...
I just saw this on eBay this morning....
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...link:middle:us

It seems he's a new member here as well... but do some research
before plunking down your dough... 8-)

Yeah, like I said, my debt is stupid huge. It will be many moons before I start building anything, let alone buying parts. I'll head over to the BLT..BST before I head out to the local shop though. I mean, it certainly won't hurt to plan ahead.

Hello Phil,
Welcome to LPF. This hobby is like any other addiction... it can become pretty expensive... and quickly. I found that just by quitting smoking I can save enough each month to buy a couple drivers and a few sleds. *It's all about priorities. LOL
Anyway... welcome home.

I thought for one second that you were the guy from Hell Angels that got arrested in newspaper frontpage.
