Hi guys, my name is Niek and I'm from the netherlands.

A while ago I got my interest in laser pointers from another forum. I ordered a DealExtreme True 30mW laser almost right away. :D

I'm planning on building my own lasers with laserdiodes from dvd/cd readers and stuffs, so I'll be hoping I can get my hopes up here.  :)

I already lurked around here a bit, but I thought it was better to just create an account here.

You guys 'll see my posts somewhere around.

Regards, Niek ;)

Welcome mate! Just so you know... the only type of drive with a useful diode is a DVD burner. DVD readers, CD readers / burners have useless diodes.

Ah yes, it makes sense, because burners need much more power.
