so i found an old DV sony handycam.
so far i found a acrylic convex lens and im having trouble taking this thing apart
is there anything worth salvaging from an old camcorder i can use for optics or any interesting experiments?
ah, sorry if this has been done
i just thoguht i'd post this chart here just to share
and also, the laser brands i charted are just the more well-known brand of lasers
i know i left out alot of other sellers
but i'll be adding more later on
it's just very time consuming
Hey guys, i thought i'd like to share this chart i made with you guys. it took quite a bit of time copy and pasting, searching prices. well. hopefully this price will come in handy when someone decides to buy a laser and wants to find the best deal in terms of prcing vs. mW output.
so, i had my x85 for about 2 days. burning things just doesn't cut it! don't get me wrong, the thing is amazing. i was short couple of dollars to to buy the collimater. which i'll buy later to burn more things. but other than burning and pointing your lasers in the sky at night
what do you guys...
i bought a x85. supposedly they output 85mW, but the one i received averages 102.6mW
nova really underrates their products
buy a nova
you wont be disappointed
edit: i just noticed that both are from nova :-[
it really depends on what kind of budget you're on
So i'm reading up on all thes tutorials
can some one clear this up for me?
i have a dvd player, no burner. if i were to use a plain dvd PLAYER i would only get a dvd diode out of it? no burner?
so i would only be able to make myself a IR laser correct?
correct me correct wise please.
yeah i did...otherwise i wouldn't have started a new thread
those threads aren;t really specific in terms of beginners. so the terms you guys use isn't, how should i put it...
well, the tone you guys use around here isn't very colloquial. so everything is apples and oranges to me. i have very...
i've been doing a bit of reading. things i need to start up a laser hobby.
how do these fare against daily use(for the next couple of weeks at least, my first high quality laser)
what brand would you guys use?
do generic rehcargables work just as well?
i just picked up a 4 pack of AAA...
aah, i alrdy bought a x85, everyone seems to look on wicked lasers
i just thought i got a better deal from nova. i hope this thing doesn't disappoint.
oh, and i will change my sognature accordingly. if it offends anyone please send me a pm.
i'll just making another one
hey guys, i signed up for this forum awhile ago, and i found it in my bookmarks! looks like i'll be here awhile. i even made myself a neat little signature
still making an avatra though
what would i need in order make myself a DIY laser
i'm getting into this hobby. well i've always...
is this what i would need to make myself a blue laser pointer?
i'm getting into this hobby. well i've always been interested in lasers, but past the burning and cool effects, it's actually quite interesting if you go in-depth.
i'd like this to be my first DIY project involvolving lasers.
nevermind, i found a loophole
i forgot i had a paypal debit card
it acts as a mastercard but it ultimately charges the payment indirectly from my paypal account
and i also found out i have 227 in my paypal!
what would you guys recommend at that budget?
i thought i'd like to try one of those...
