Hey all. I found this forum searching Google for how to build a laser. There's a lot of information here and I like it. I'm a senior in computer engineering so I'm not new to elecrronics, just lasers. For >1 year I have wanted to build a laser after seeing one made out of a tiny mag lite pop a balloon. I've decided to build one following a diy I found here and hope to be safe with it. It uses the local-815 diode.

This OS kind of long, just saying hello. i mainly just lurk and don't ask questions unless I am in dier need of an answer.

Thanks.

That's one thing I'm afraid of. Right now all I want is 1 laser but who knows what I'll end up with on down the road.

Welcome to LPF!!!

Look around and use the “Search” function, it is very helpful if you’re looking for some specific information. If you don’t find what you want the first time, try different “key words”.

A good place to start is here, the “Rules & Stickies” section, pay special attention to the “Stickies”: http://laserpointerforums.com/f36/

If you’re looking for information on how to build a laser check out the links in my sig.

Enjoy your stay!! You will find this a great community with lot of very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful people. :beer:

Thanks for all the welcomes.

Have I done something wrong already? Everyone keeps telling me to search and read the rules. Isn't that assumed with all forums.

You would be surprised at how many people don't make that assumption; so after a while you just get in the habit of saying that to everybody that's new.

You're good, done nothing wrong :)
