Default Hi from Virginia

Hello everyone, Just want to say thanks for running a great site.
I have a been a laser geek for sometime now. First got interested when we started using Rofin laser welders at work.
Currently I own five lasers that I have built using diodes purchased on Ebay.
Red laser pointer diode mounted in a smc air cylinder housing, green laser diode also mounted in a smc housing, a blue laser diode running at 100mw also mounted in a smc cylinder housing, albeit a little longer to accommodate the 9 aa batteries (it burns a little but nothing great), an IR diode mounted in a old vision system camera housing running at 250mw, and then the newest one completed last week is IR diode running at 1watt also mounted in a camera housing but instead of batteries this on runs off of a homebuilt power supply, burning things has gotten a lot more fun.
Looking forward to learn lots more and share info when i can.

Looks like your using camera lens for focusing, does it work well?

Yep that's the one, and yes the lens has done really well.
Would be nice if it wasn't so long but it was an experiment just to try.
