Ok, so, I was digging through some old stuff of mine and I found a small laser pointer that my dad got for me when I was little. Got me thinking I wanted another. I surfed the web and found this site and man, learned a lot of things I didn't know, and still have things to learn. Ok, now to the point of this thread, I know i don't have what it takes YET to build my own laser, so, I was curious on what laser I should buy. I kind of just want a laser that is portable, and can burn ;D. So I guess, any advice on a laser i should get that can burn, and whatever safety items that are necessary/recommended? Oh, and, like most, I'd rather it not be too expensive, but, I'll see what you guys think. As for beam color, I don't care too much, I'll leave that up to you. Thanks guys.
