Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to drop a quick post here to get started.

I've never built a laser but have had the drive to do so for a while now. I've only one pointer (nothing special) it being a red pointer one of my professors gave me in college years ago.

My main exposure to lasers was during my time working as a house photographer for a huge House / Trance / Drum & Bass nightclub in Washington DC called NATION which has since been torn down. I worked with a laser display company called P.A.W.N. Lasers & photographed many of their light patterns they produced with their custom laser rig. On several occasions I was able to see the internal workings of the box & was amazed at what I was seeing even though I didn't understand one bit of it. I was impressed at how it was cooled by constant running water from regular water hoses running into & out of the box.

I'm aspiring to build my own rig on a smaller scale with the limited knowledge I have & feel it may actually be possible with the wealth of knowledge from everyone here.

Until I get to that point I'm trying to boost my collection of pointers from the red one my professor gave me to include a Green burner, a blu-ray, violet & a yellow one. If anyone has any to sell at a decent price please let me know.

Thank you,

Alfie C. Santos

Welcome to the forum.
Read up here, all you can and in no time you will be building lasers.
Look in the B/S/T or Laser-Pro-shop sections if you want a good laser at a good price.
BTW: Don't buy off of e-bay unless someone here has recommended the seller. A lot of junk on there.:yabbmad:
