i just thought of a cool idea. would it be possible to make a burning IR laser like the 400 mW ones pseudo sells with around 5 mW of green in it just so you could know where you were aiming.

Not easily -- it would be almost impossible to focus both on one axis.

Millionaire - that is an awesome idea - but like Mike said - unless you were using two seperate setups (most likely labby style) then it would be VERY difficult at best.

You ARE right though - it IS an excellent idea !

On some of the high power lasers they DO incorporate aiming lasers. Trying to aim with a kW range cutter would be amazingly impractical. Unfortunately even doing this in a lab style setup takes supplies and labor that are pretty expensive relative a <$300 laser. Doing it in a pen laser is not entirely impossible, but the cost of the laser would likely go up by at least an order of magnitude.

i tried it once. if you stick a piece of crystal from a greenie infront of an ir laser, you basically have some green, and a whole lot of IR
