Hey guys, don't expect me to be much physics help, I can put stuff together if I'm told where it goes.

Although with computers I'm fine, built my rig right here and it's epic.

Anyway, been interested in lasers since Star Wars came out, want to build my own laser now (Which lasts longer than those stupid little £1.99 laser pens you get here) and actually reaches a distance of more than 10 feet!

The only problem is, being all the way up in Scotland, I've no idea WHERE to get parts.

I quite like the idea of using an Xbox 360 HD DVD drive's diode.. Seeing as they're practically useless now.  ;D

Cheers!

Edit: So if anyone can give me a complete parts list and where to get everything, as well as HOW to stick it all together...

I'd love you forever. ;)

Welcome to the forums!

I'm also Scottish, hence the welcome!

Where are you in Scotland ?

Hello and welcome to the forum! I'm actually selling a couple of my blu-ray builds, you can click the violet link in my sig, I also have a list of the parts I use and where to get them on my first post. Check out the stickies on the buy/sell/trade and tutorials boards. Read up some, I'm sure you'll find ALL the info you need. It's pretty much a choice of preferences you'll find, so feel free to ask any questions!

Only place you will get any laser making gear in Scotland is maplins. Atleast thats the only one I can think of !

Is anyone from Glasgow, other than heady ? No ? We should get a Scottish laser Gang together ;D

never mind ::) Looks like I'll be alone here in Glasgow for the most part !

And Dave, next time I'm on holiday up north I'll bring you back some pictures ;) ;D
