Post Hello, fellow laser enthusiasts

My name is Katherine. I've joined this forum because I figured a website entitled "laserpointerforums" would be the exact place I could go to not get made fun of for thinking that lasers are the coolest thing, and that I want to collect them.

I bought a Spyder III Arctic 2w+ from Wicked Lasers not so long ago, and I really like it. It seems that Wicked Lasers has stepped up their game since the fiasco in 2010.

My laser peaks at ~2.4W, and has a nominal output of 2.375W.

I'm wondering if anyone can give me some pointers as to what to do with it; as I'm rather wary of pointing it at stars, lest I get accused of attempting to lase an aircraft.

Welcome If you're careful with your star pointing you'll be fine. Some of the guys here set up absolutely beautiful photo shoots for their lasers using interesting optics and splitters. Though you have a very strong laser for that. I personally love to go out early morning to watch the beams on my big mw lasers.

Hey so, how much of a bad idea is this:
Build a cutting laser from an old PC

I very much want to construct my own laser systems; I think it'll be more rewarding and fun to build them from parts rather than buy pre-assembled laser devices on the internet. I have all the stuff needed to build the thing shown in this article, and the electrical knowledge required not to seriously injure myself or anyone else in the process.

Also, is a 520nm diode worth it? I love that shade of green.

Default Re: Hello, fellow laser enthusiasts

The 520 are definitely a great color. Worth it? I think 99percent of us would say hell yes. And the cutting laser I'd a fun project. Drake is actually a member here. I would rather have the 500mw red diode from dtr. The power from the dvd writers is ok, but not very high for burning as well as your arctic. Check out dtr laser shop if you haven't already. All kinds of goodies to have fun with. My first build / half of, was a dvd writer and it turned out the diode was damaged either from me, or the improper storage of the junk computer. Now I'd much rather know what I'm getting and go with dtr. A trusted member, and the go to guy for parts

Hi Kat, welcome to LPF! Do you know the laser safety rules & need for safety goggles?

4 LASER SAFETY: (by Livinloud)
No matter the power, lasers should be treated like a loaded gun with these steps :
• ALWAYS keep the safety glasses/goggles on when operating lasers.
• ALWAYS keep the laser pointed away from humans, animals, cars, trains, air planes, etc.
• ALWAYS keep the laser “unloaded” until one is ready to use it (don’t store it with batteries inside).
• ALWAYS keep the finger away from the power button until one is ready to use it.
If one follows these simple rules, there will NEVER be any accidents involving lasers.

Default Re: Hello, fellow laser enthusiasts

Well, yes, I can summarize them for you now.

Do Not endanger yourself or anyone else in any way when operating a laser device. This means not to point it at people, animals, vehicles, aircraft or one's self.

Do not view the beam or endpoint without properly rated optical density safety goggles.

Do not leave the diode's power source connected to the rest of the system when the laser is not in operation.

Do not operate the laser near reflective surfaces unless that's part of a controlled experiment.

When using a laser that can start small fires (or large ones), do not allow any flammable materials to be exposed to the beam, and keep fire suppression equipment nearby at all times.

Treat every laser as though it is class IV, just as a person should treat every gun, crossbow, softair gun or BB gun as though it is loaded with the safety off, never pointing it at anything one does not intend to expose to laser radiation.
