Default Hello LPF! - New member

Thought I'd introduce myself to the forum. I'm 21 years old, more than a bit of a science nerd, and never grew out of the level of curiosity I had as a 5 year old. I was the kind of 8 year old kid who felt like I had the power of the universe in my hand if you would hand me a laser pointer. I saved my allowance for weeks to buy a $15 5mw "pen style" laser pointer from Target and got to grow up during the diode laser renaissance when 1mw pointers became an item on the check out counter at my local 98c store.

So here I am now at 21 after a decade of internet surfing, reading, learning, soaking up all the info I could, and finally getting some hands on experience. I just ordered My first high power laser diode, a PHR-805T blue ray diode in an Aixiz housing.

I'm currently an engineering major working my way through undergrad studies. I just returned to academic studies after 2 years of completing A&P school, the training to receive an FAA certificate allowing me to work as an aircraft mechanic and return an aircraft to service after maintenance. I'm pretty good with hand tools, beyond comfortable with soldering after 5 years working in a radio controlled hobbies shop, and have a decent component-level-knowledge of electronics.

This site has been very helpful in wrapping my head around everything I'll need to be successful as a laser hobbiest. I'll be buying the components for an LM317 driver and getting it tuned before my diode arrives. Sounds like it should be a pretty basic set-up to get me started. Hopefully stronger diodes and homebuilt gas lasers will be in my near future.

After that long winded introduction, I'm looking forward to joining the community and getting my start. Thanks!

And there you have it lol. Its not an official intro thread if Jerry hasn't given it his stamp of approval post :P

Welcome to the forums bro. You should probably check out the diode pressing tutorial in my signature for help with your first build. Feel free to ask if you cant find answers on your own. I have no issues with giving painfully specific advice

Hey! thanks everyone. I guess I got off easy with this first build as the diode was already pressed into the module. Thanks for all the links Lasersbee. I gave the stickies a good read through. It's a huge pet peeve of mine when people ask questions that are easily answered with a little research. That's a huge driving force that got me out of the R/C Hobby shop. %90 of my job was pulling out the stores copy of a car manual that the customer threw away, and then reading that manual to them.

Kartracer- A&P was awesome. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys working with their hands. The scheduling was close to a full time job. I took it at my local community college (way cheaper than the trade schools on t.v. and just as good) and I was there 5 days a week from 7 a.m. - 2 or 3 p.m. for 2 years. The bottom line of A&P is make sure you all the available, correct, information, and perform every job to the absolute highest level of craftsmanship. Any mechanic job in any field is basically open to an A&P. I've heard of A&Ps working in Lamborghini maintenance shops, NHRA pit crews, ski lift mechanics, and theme park ride mechanics. One student from my school got his certs and 2 years later he was pulling in $140k a year at Disneyland. I still have a couple loose ends to tie up with the school before I can test with the FAA and get my certificate. Meanwhile I'm going for that engineering degree.

Bro, that sounds amazing. I may even have to look into that myself. I have been looking for something to do that requires me using my hands a lot. I have just signed up for Auto mechanics at a nearby community college in the hopes that I could find what I'm looking for in that. I should look into that as an option also.
