Blaster,

I would say welcome to the forum, but since your intro post is number 54 around here, you probably have the gist of it all... welcome to your official introduction to the forum then!

If you're like me, you've already discovered that there is a TON of info here... I know there are several threads on laser builds, diodes, diodes, etc. Let me see if I can help with a few links you may or may not have found thusfar:

Laser Build thread

Drivers explained

Driver Specifications

Diode Compilations

and you probably don't need this since you are an electronics guy, but for the benefit of others perhaps reading this... Soldering 101

Have fun, mate... and share your progress with us.

Be safe,
clayton

Welcome to the forums!

I love me some Aussies. If you've got Skype or Ventrilo, hmu some time so I can listen to your accent. xD

I swear, I'm moving to Australia some day. ;)
