Talking Anxious to learn more!

Hi guys,

I would like to attempt to build a small laser for burning designs into pieces of wood. I have been searching the forums for a beginners build and hoped to start small and work my way up. I have read about eye safety and i am very aware that it is important, i also have soldering and some circuit board repair experience. I was hoping somebody out there might be able to post a link or two, or send me a message, pointing me in the right direction. Thanks guys!

Peace,
Axel

I posted a tutorial on how to assemble a basic C6-hosted 445nm laser a while back:

Survival Laser DIY Host Assembly Photo Tutorial (Picture Heavy)

I highly recommend that you purchase the appropriate wavelength laser safety goggles BEFORE you build your laser.

I would suggest you also look in the Tutorials section of
the Forum. It will bring you up to speed on how to build
a Laser.

You could also buy a Kit that can be found in the B/S/T
sections of the Forum...

Ty again! I am looking into getting the diy survival laser s4 host! Before i do though, i would like to learn more about the drivers, so i can make sure i have the right one for what i want to build. I also need to know where to find good eye protection... Cuz i dont wanna be blind... Lol. Im sorry if i am asking to many questions that have been asked before, but i get lost in any forums way to easily. If anyone has any links that might answer my questions, i do appreciate your time and effort!

Axel,

Please check out our drivers on this page:

Diode Drivers

You will need to determine the optical output power desired to choose the proper driver. The host you mentioned ships with a 1.25A driver but I can substitute one of our other drivers for $15 more. This assumes you are going to use a 445nm diode...1.25A will give you 1-1.3W optical output, 1.5A will give you 1.3-1.5W output and 1.8A will provide 1.6-2W output with a standard 3-element lens, depending on individual diode efficiency. Output with a G-1 or G-2 lens will be about 15% higher.

If you are building a 445nm laser I would recommend one of these goggles:

Eagle Pair® 190-540nm Standard Laser Safety Goggles

Eagle Pair® 190-540nm Slip Over Laser Safety Goggles

These have excellent ambient light transmission yet offer very good protection against up to 10W of 445nm laser light. The slip overs are great if you wear corrective lenses.

If you have any other questions I will be happy to answer them on the forum or via PM.
