Default Re: WTB Burning Laser For Lighting "Tabacco"

It would need to be dry "tobacco" dry to the point of being brittle. You will need around 500mW for this to work effectively. Your best/cheapest bet would be to use a violet laser or an IR.

Your cheapest/best bet would be to use a lighter.. but if you must use a laser, do as yobresal suggests. Be aware that using a high-powered laser around a glass or metal "tobacco" bowl is a recipe for disaster since a tiny reflection at those power levels will cause permanent damage if it should happen to find it's way into your eye. Lighters are a tad less blinding.

Yeah it really is not worth the risk/effort. If you want to use an alternative to flame try a magnifying glass.

I have a sneak-a-toke design using a laser. I haven't built it yet, but the design looks promising. =]

I don't think the 200mW would do the trick.

It would be really hard to light the tobacco with a 200mw laser, I think it would just burn the tobacco instead

When tobacco, or herbs, gets "ignited", or burned, toxins in the fumes can be hazardous to your non-cancerous self.

At the vaporization temp, you get the essence, and non of the toxic fumes.

Omg how is that guy not blind? That is the stupidest thing I have ever seen! You would think someone who builds lasers like that would know something about laser safety... damn that was scary just watching.

anyhow heres another- It can be done - Laser lighter

I like it better, the angles better too, haha. Rog is a member of this forum.
