I never though of solder!! If I held a steel
spring that close to my bare fingers and touched
it with a 60 W soldering iron at 800 Deg F, I
would be burned. I've done it. Strange science here.
6x6 mm beam burns steel ?? WOW............

I just cut off a piece of shiny solder with my 2 Watt
445 nM. A little smoke and plop....

I have a low pain threshold dude ;) Steel is burned due to the constriction of the beam... I think you know ;)

Might add that I have never seen solder glow red hot before plopping, so IMHO I think it's steel, chrome coated whatever.

I'm sure the laser was focused, 6x6mm is probably the size at aperture.

Of course the beam was focused. I thought he was making fun ;)

I accidentally found a video with my 11W hell burner. You can see a FHD-burning (high resolution). Enjoy watching ;)

looks like a must have labby.

11W is a lot of power. I'm surprised it's able to cut a spring like that.

Good job!! :drool:

looked like solder to me . I would think it would take over 20W to cut metal

I think this is entirely plausible. I have cut a Tungsten filament inside a small incandescent bulb before with a focussed 450nm beam (~2.5W).

thin, darkened metal will absorb enough heat to melt.

:thinking:

Last time I checked, solder was metal. :na: Anyway, I know you mean steel when you
say metal. That is definitely steel. Solder doesn't spark like that.
