Yes sir ive got a soldering iron and all ive been building custom drones for several years now.
But I wanted to get into high power lasers. I was hoping someone would be able to hook me up with a kit or some spare parts to get me started. I really want to build something capable of burning

Hi, You need these to start off for safety , you only have one set of eyes this is highly recommended .
Then go to the DTR Laser Shop .com and choose a diode, driver,lens package. I would start with a lower power diode being that you are new to the hobby.

Welcome
Suggestion?
put your location in your profile.
Then edit your thread in the welcome section and add your state to the title.
We are blessed with many great members -world wide-but connecting for Laser Meets (LEMs) is not always easy --some small meets happen quick == not much lead time for Pop-Up LEMs-
want a laser to be metered? any LPF member here with a LPM , by custom, will meter any laser any time..
It is a mistake to go BIG too fast.. do your homework-- check the sigs of most members for good links.
AND GET your eye protection First.... always then get a laser. you want to get eye protection that covers the lasers you want to own . I sometimes wear two pairs .. covering most that we use.
Those that protect from many/all wavelengths are very 'spendy.'
BUY FROM FORUM MEMBERS!!
Survival Laser has good eye wear.

Most of us take excellent care of our lasers-- buying from a member leaving the 'hobby' has its advantages.
90% of my collection has less than an hour duty time--
They give the forum , the best deals.--
ENJOY LPF & do it safely

Hi.
You can order diodes, drivers and a lens of your choice from DTR Laser Shop. There are a multitude to select from .
Copper modules in different sizes to fit the diodes wasted heat.
Lenses to suit you divergence desires. He is a stand up guy for customer service bar none.
Diode purchases are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you get from other sellers. You need to know what is a good deal.
