    Advice on disassembly

    Most 'store made' lasers are hard to open--Most of mine are JLs and glued together-- JayRob has had some luck-- but when heat must be used none of the still-good parts are always damaged--too. I would think that if you bought a member-made host the building would be much easier.. In UK is...

    405nm 500mW engraver laser module

    Hello new member--welcome. I noticed that you failed to place an 'intro' of yourself in the newcomers section---not too late to do that IMO. It is best if you place your location into the intro title and in your personal profile. WE are blessed with great members all over the world AND most...

    Why a laser beam suddenly stops. (revisited)

    Pilot?? awesome we have a few but not enough. Many here would like to get your opinion on laser incidents reported by pilots. Its no secret that many pilots are NO FANS of lasers (I assume mostly pointers). So it is only human nature to exaggerate things depending on ones feelings about...
