Hi everyone :wave:

I'm from the UK and came across the forum whilst searching for lasers!

My history of lasers has been zero up until a cheapo off a street seller whilst on holiday recently, of which after reading on here I'm not totally convinced it's safe to use without some sort of eye protection? 100mW 532 green class III china one? I've goggles in transit now. OMG my heads been on overload these last few day's! I've taken on board so much that my last remaining brain cells are going round in ever decreasing circles, a little knowledge is dangerous, but hopefully I'll get there slowly and safely ay!

Thank you and good to be here!

Hi there, awesome user name! I'm surprised it hasn't been taken already because it's quite relevant to our hobby. :wave:

Most Chinese el-cheapo lasers are overrated and we highly doubt that it's really pumping out 100mW of green. Not that safety isn't a concern though. Green lasers also leak some IR radiation if they don't have filters, and again, we doubt yours has one. It'd be great if your goggles had IR filtering as well.

Hope you enjoy your stay here, and be safe! :)

Cheers! :beer:

That was funny, I'll do my best to keep out of the second catagory but no promises lol.

I've seen some amazing builds already! (well to me they looked amazing) I can feel a christmas list coming on! (only 16 weeks) perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned that word.!

Thank you all again for warm welcome and suggestions!
