Welcome

The only problem with the RPL-400 is that in comparison any laser you buy from now on will be too weak :P Focus on getting a nice red burner and a good blu-ray laser instead

If you had access to a Laser Power Meter... it would let you know the amount the Goggles
will cut the Laser's beam or how much of the laser's beam goes through the Goggles.

I use Novalasers goggles (same as laserglow goggles). They protect against voilet to green wavelengths and have an OD of 7+. While you really only need an OD of like 1 or 2, the extra protection makes me feel safer when burning stuff. I'm not sure if you know how the OD scale works but I think you simply add a decimal and a zero per OD level. For instance 1OD would allow .01% of the laser light through. 2OD would allow .001% of the light through. If I'm wrong somone will correct me.

Heres the link to the glasses I use (I use the sports edition):

OD1 would be 10% of laser light, not 0.01% And OD2 is 1%
