I'm looking to start making my own lasers. I have a part time job and virtually no living expenses so the longer I wait the more money I'll have to spend on lasers.

I would like to put a laser inside a zippo lighter. I've been looking into the blue ray laser diodes and saw the "PHR-803T Diode In Aixiz Focusing Module" on darklasers.com but it is sadly sold out.

Now for my real question (but i'd appreciate any advice to a beginner):

What is the best and cheapest place to buy diodes and drivers for my purposes?

Thanks

Not from DarkLaser. Do some searching here and you'll find out why, and some better people to buy from.
