It was scavenging parts from a laser printer that led me on this ever expanding quest to build lasers. :whistle:
I still haven't made a driver for the printer diode but as we all have, moved on to bigger and more dangerous projects

I found a nice 5V regulator with on/off pin in a laser printer. Also some nice mirrors in there. Motor might be kind of tricky to wire up.
