    Custom "El Cheapo" RGB Laser With FX Controller!

    Thanks for all the help! Finally realized my mistake, I wired up the controllers output wrong. When I get back from work I'll play around with it a bit more and hopefully get some decent pictures.

    Specific Diffusion Question

    Sorry for the likely repeat but I could only find vague answers. For some background I built a 2W 445nm laser a few years back and religiously wear goggles when using it for anything other than pointing it at an empty clear sky. I understand that diffraction can be a safety hazard at high...
