Welcome to the forum, zemo. I see you have set your birth date properly. Do you still need that mission report?

Razako is right, you should look at my guide. It will help you choose the right company.

You won't find a real 1w blue for unDer 60-80$ if you do it'll be bad anyway.

My first 1w was built with used parts and and old led flashlight. I had like 45$ in the build I think.

If you don't know how to build, I would buy a 1 watt from o-like I believe they're about 60$ and you need to also get a little extra cash to buy a proper pair of safety glasses. 1 watt is not something to play with and not have proper safety. If you can't afford eagle pair then at least get a cheap pair online.

The 2w lasers I've been building for people range from 115-150$ but I don't suggest it for someone who is inexperienced and not even asking about proper protection.. maybe if you get some experience under your belt and contact me once you have proper safety measures I can help you more.

$50 is basically the entry point to 1W blue lasers. Anything cheaper will be a total pos. I'd recommend the XPL laser the guy above linked, or something from O-like.

I didn't think that was focusable.. I always forget to include the XPL stuff but that's because I had my brother get a O-Like beginner and he had good experience with it.
