Hey guys and gals. My name is Vince. I live in S.E. Oklahoma. I'm new to the hobby. I served in the U.S. Navy as an Electronics Technician many years ago and had a lot of experience with lasers. I have followed your forum for a few weeks now trying to get an idea of how far technology has advanced since I last played with electronics. I am interested in learning the craft of laser building, however, it will take me some time to get to that. I am truely impressed with many of the projects I have read on the boards. Hope to get to know many of you and perhaps we can do business in the near future. Nonetheless, I wish to learn as much as I can from each and every one of you. Safety is a great concern of mine and I am happy to hear you all mention it often.
