Default Laser time tunnel.......or attempt

So, I read a little about laser time tunnels and was excited to make one.... I just used what I had around the house and made quick one.... but I need to g back to the drawing board. I used a dremal at lowest speed, which is very fast with a small mirror attached.

About mid way through some nice effects happened.... not sure how either

I think I need to angle the mirror more use a slower motor? Any other comments or suggestions are apprecitiated.

I used my 80mW green & 550mW violet.

YouTube - First attempt at a laser time tunnel.....then just some cool laser beams

I'd angle the mirror more, and you need a front surface mirror to get rid of the artifacts.

Check out the spiro threads. A spiro is the same as a time tunnel, just with 2 other mirrors to create the effect.

Default Re: Laser time tunnel.......or attempt

Tunnel EFX (no TIME involved) can be one motor and a piece of FS mirror-good place to find a free/cheap one is inside a polaroid one-step camera(1$) or flatbed scanners.

And nice small reversable 3vdc motors are inside an old plastic 35mm cameras that have motor drive to advance/rewind the film-around 3$ at thrift shops. If you are lazy PM me and I will sell you a motor (s) with mirror attached.-cheap

Default Re: Laser time tunnel.......or attempt

The best (probably not easiest) place to get FS mirrors is hard drive platters. You can cut them to shape, and there is usually more than one platter per drive so you get more mirrors for your buck. The flatbed scanner mirrors are usually glass and very hard to cut and they also scratch incredibly easy.
Try to use newer drives though, older (10+ years) have a better chance of being ceramic platters that you can't cut and newer bigger drives usually have more platters = more mirrors.

A regular mirror from a hard drive? I have never heard of that, and can't even think of a reason for it to be in there. That's odd

data is recorded on them.. its not actually a mirror but just a magnetic coated surface that is highly reflective.

Well I know that, I even posted a little how to on making FS mirrors out of them over in the lasershow section, but he says his drive had a glass looking regular mirror. I don't think glass was ever used for hard drives, I know ceramic was, but glass?
