Yes, buy this and take out the line generating optic (or leave it in if you're going to use the module).

That is exactly it... you shine the Laser's Beam through the Glass Stir Stick's
diameter.... *

I would have a hard time doing it any other way... :-?

I mean..... all you had to do is try it... there are only so many possibilities
with a simple stir stick... ;D

I'd go with one of these instead of the DX version, Aixiz ships a lot faster than DX.

Oh yeah, I love doing that with the christmas tree light glasses. Just remember if you live in the USA, Dealextreme will not ship ANY lasers to you now. They'll just give you a refund a few days later. :-/

You want what is called a cylindrical lens. * Depending on how long a line you want, you will need a longer or shorter focal length.

For example, if you shine the beam through the stem of a wine glass, you will get a long line. *If you shine it through a clear glass of water, you will get a short line.

I recently bought a clear plastic ruler with a built in cylindrical magnifier along the length of the ruler. *It was a couple dollars at a department store. *I cut it into short sections to make many cylindrical lenses. *
