Default Re: Can anyone make me a powerful handheld laser burner for up to 80 USD?

I have not got safety goggles but don't worry the laser will not even come out of the box until I do. Any recommendations?

You can buy These from dragon lasers but shipping is a killer.

But, look at the ratings! you could probably use them for 405/445

OD>4 @ 190-443nm
OD>2 @ 444-454nm
OD>2 @ 717-745nm
OD>3 @ 746-1097nm

I see no where in this thread where you asked specifically for an IR laser.

Anyway, that's not the point. Its obviously your first high powered laser, and IMO it was a bad recommendation. Not saying that you can't handle it, just saying that people should think about what they are recommending before they do it.

Good for you buying proper goggles. Stay safe.

Ok sorry if my last post sounded rude. While im here someone is being awkward and not answering my thread maybe u can answer. What happens if uk customs take my laser? And what are the chances of it being taken?

Thanks for the help though everyone
That's not less dangerous... Even 5 mW of IR can cause instant permanent damage to your eyes since you can't see it you won't blink and your eyeballs will melt.

Make sure you have proper glasses to go with that and don't use it if anyone else is around without glasses.
