    Laser security system?

    So I was thinking, and you know how you always see those high powered laser security systems that will cut your arm off in the movies? Well is that even possible at all to any degree?

I have it set at 120mA but I don't know if its right or not...I may have done the connection wrong or broken my Flexdrive but...

    Got my diode today and my module, and as I was thinking about how I was going to put the diode into the module, I realized he already did it for me ;D Sweet, I should be a proud owner of a high powered laser that much faster :D

    Dorcy Driver?

    Im going to be making my first laser this weekend(assuming my diode comes today) and I am using a dorcy jr host. I keep doing more and more reading to make sure I don't screw this up and I keep seeing talk about removing some sort of driver underneath the black plastic in the battery case, where...

    Blu-Ray Goggles?

    Im going to be in the process of building a blu-ray. I plan on running it at about 120mA which should put it at 60mW(right?). Anyways, from what I understand that blu-ray does NOT put out IR correct? Now does that mean I should still wear goggles? If so, can someone post a link of the goggles I...

    Good deal or No?

    Alright I bought a diode for my first laser, a PHR-803T Blu-Ray. I spent 23ish on the diode (from hightechdealz) and I also bought an Aixiz module along with it, so the total came out to around $26.00. My question, after seeing threads on this forum about the same diode selling for 12$, is did I...
