Default My first attempts at burning with a laser :)

Hi all

So yesterday I got my first "more powerful" laser pointer. Well actually it was my second one. The first one I got was last week, I took it apart as I wanted to see what was inside and it broke haha,my Mrs hates when I attempt DIY lol.

Anyway I had a few practice runs with the laser and then decided to make a video with it burning and lighting things. I must say I'm very impressed with it considering it only cost around 8.

It kind of makes me want to spend a little more money getting a better one

Hope you enjoy the video.

Welcome to the joy of direct energy, I will never get tired of it and much like a motorcycle or sports car you can never have too much power, your tires may be too small but never too much power.

You would love more power.

Don't trust ebay sellers who claim large numbers, if you want real power buy a module and drop it into a host, it's easy and lots of fun.

Here is a very good module store.

Here are some of my burning clips on youtube.

Even the very affordable humble M-140 is fun, safety glasses are a must.
