Default Hello all newbie here (US)

Hello my name is Dravin. I am an electronics enthusiast that's main hobby is to dissect and learn while repairing and advancing the tech that i'm working on. recently I had seen a video on building lasers using parts from a broken computer and wanted to give it a try. Any tips or information on getting started in this world of lasers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading/helping!

Hello, Dravin and welcome. There is so much to building lasers that it can't be contained in a single post. Your best bet is to use the search feature and spend some time looking at threads that are instructive. Then you will be in the position to ask some pertinent questions.
