Default New Hobby

Hello everyone,

I have been reading up on everything lasers for a while now and decided to finally join. A friend of mine from work is mildly into lasers and that's what got me started. Aside from the dog toy red laser my experience with lasing is zero. I only know what I have read on the forums about various DIY builds, reviews, etc. I do understand that lasers are dangerous and so I apply the same attitude towards them that I do with my firearms. I have recently purchased a 3.6W Dominator which will be arriving later today according to USPS. I have purchased a cheap 532nm locally in the mean time to fiddle around with. It is a Chinese laser that sells on ebay for 10 dollars. I considered taking it apart to learn more but I figured I'd wait until I have my other laser so I am not without something to play with. I want to get an LPM so I can test the power on my green laser. As I understand it most of the ebay lasers are overspec and full of IR. I was reading a thread earlier discussing the reasons for getting into lasers. Two major themes emerged: 1. POWER 2. WAVELENGTHS. I can say right now that I am all about wavelengths. I want to collect the spectrum. So far my favorite colors and primary collection interests are 556nm and 589nm. Too bad they are so expensive. I think my next down to earth purchases will be 405nm and 635nm. I also would like to build a laser but more learning is required. Another aspect of the laser hobby that I really like are the various types of hosts.

I just wanted to introduce myself and give everyone the heads up that I will be on the fringe of the forum until I have more to say.

Good introduction kotootl. Welcome to LPF!
Enjoy your stay, have fun, be safe and wear the proper eyewear, especially with your new Dominator.
Starting out with the Dominator is definitely like jumping into the deep end of the pool!

Unfortunately, you just missed out on a great group buy on Dragonlasers 50mW 589nm beauties. There may be another one coming up in the near future, stay tuned.

Welcome to LPF!

Very nice introduction! Sounds like you got a great start.

Don't get too intimidated from the idea of building your own laser. Many builds are as simple as soldering two wires together.

Be safe, and have fun!

Wish I would have noticed the group buy on the 589, I would have jumped on that band wagon. Hopefully I won't have to wait to long.
