I have been interested in lasers since I was about 10 years old when my uncle bought me my very own laser pointer. That one broke about 6 months later and I was devastated. I wouldn't say I lost interest, but I definitely didn't care about lasers until about two months ago. I saw a video from Styropyro and decided to buy two cheap laser pointers from eBay which were both very different. One was a cheap 5mW laser pointer that had huge voltage drops and didn't work very well, another was a 5mW (most likely overspec) 303 Laser Pointer that works incredibly well. Well this only piqued my interest in lasers even more. I spend weeks researching information about lasers and finally found this forum. I was in heaven. I found Sci-Fi lasers and decided to purchase a 1 Watt 445nm laser from them along with a pair of Eagle Pair goggles. I just can't wait to get it in the mail I hope to one day build my own laser from a spare computer that I scrapped a while ago but that's another story. Regardless, I hope to get to know a lot of people around here as I've already seen a ton of helpful information being passed around. Thank you all for listening and have a great rest of your day! Happy lasing!
