Hey, I'd love to have a chance to chat with you and your dad together on the phone about what you want to do. I have a cheap greenie pointer which can be converted to a burner. I don't think it would be appropriate for me to talk to you directly without him on the line if you are an adolescent, so I can't do that. Also, we have a disgruntled member who keeps coming back pretending to be such, this would help remove such concerns that you are sincerely interested in this hobby and not someone playing games. So far, you have avoided talking except through texting or other means which hide your identity from me, which is fine, you have that right and there are good reasons not to be too open on the internet with anyone. However, when I ask to have a phone chat with your dad to make sure you are going to be safe with a burning laser, someone you had told us is also interested in your project, you won't let that happen. To me, it appears your dad either doesn't know, or he's 60 years old.
