  • Heh, "cheap and good" is a bit of an oxymoron with lasers. If you want a "good" laser, you're going to have to shell out some cash. However, there are some decent lasers you could complete for around $20, assuming you have a few parts on hand.

    Considering that you have never soldered before, I would highly recommend getting some practice before you even attempt to build a laser. Search the forums/google for "how to solder" and you will find plenty of information to guide you.

    As for a laser to build, did you read my post here: http://laserpointerforums.com/f50/red-laser-build-47266.html#post640306 ? I listed the parts you will need for a functional laser. If you need any more information, try searching for some tutorials on the forums. There is a lot of information out there to be found!

    If after reading and searching you still can't find an answer to your questions. You can then start a new thread with your questions which other members can then answer.
    Hi there and welcome to the forums lager562,

    Why dont you go ahead and post your question(s) to the "Red Lasers" section. I can probably answer your questions, but creating a new thread will allow other members to contribute their insights and opinions. Not only that, but other people in the future can also reference your thread and benefit from the information.

    Enjoy your stay,
