Hi all,

I am a noob to lasers and have spent a few days reading through the forums before I decided to sign up and post. The more I read about lasers here the more I realize how little I know about them however I find it quite intriguing.

I stumbled across the forums while looking at a some 445nm lasers online. I was totally blown away at the power of these lasers and while have always respected the danger of even a low powered cheap dollar store red laser I never imagined just how dangerous the higher watt lasers can be if mishandled. So much so that I nearly changed my mind about obtaining one but the more I search through threads and read up on the building aspect of them the more interested I am becoming.

Not sure yet if my first will be purchased or if I will attempt a build but the idea of building my own is quite exciting. First I plan to do more research and get myself some safety glasses. I am really concerned about safety of others as well as my self and certainly understand that these are no toys.

I am a bit overwhelmed by all the beautiful hosts and builds I have seen here however I am starting to get some Idea of what i like. I think the lvl of support and information being provided by some members here is awesome and is so much more than I would have expected. I will do my best not to ask too many noobish questions and use the search first :).

Welcome to the forum!

Your attitude sounds finely tuned, that doesn't happen a lot with new members joining this forum. Definitely spend some time seaching the hundreds of threads (especially the stickies) on how things are done here, but never be too hesitant to ask a question on something you just can't find the answer to.

This forum is all about research, learning and helping others. Take advantage of it because that's how most of us got to where we are now :)

Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you are off to a good start. If you keep reading up, you might decide to make that 445nm laser yourself. You can find what you need here to do it. Look at the threads posted by first time builders. The only problem with this hobby is the constant need for another laser ...
