i have found this buy trying to find a place to build your own laser driver and trying to find a way to build my own power meter got any ideas or any thing in the forums. HI by the way and will have my laser gun built here soon to pop balloons. it is interesting o see that this site has a spell checker later all.
searching for info on good flashlights (MXDL) that make good laser blank (aixiz) holders for my DIY projects.
Thanks to Google, Candlepowerforums and the other links that pointed me to this wealth of information.
Hi, just found this forum via the instructables site. Have been into laser for about a year and a half,
surprised that I am just now finding this site. I have lasers ranging from 1 to 300 mw. I am looking
forward to talking to other people who are just as obsessed with lasers as I am. The notion originally hit when I bought a large model of the Millenium Falcon and a Darth Vader Tie Fighter.
I thought wouldn't it be cool to build a little circuit to have some LEDs light up, then I had the vision
of suspending both models from the ceiling and have lasers shooting at each other and take a picture of it. I started researching laser diodes and was blown away by the possibilities. I still have not completed the model project as building more elaborate light shows took over my
attention. So that is my short intro- glad to be here and hope to share lots of knowledge and experience with everyone.
I purchsed a 5mW bluray on eBay. When I got it I was VERY disappointed with the spot on the wall. :'( It was dimmer than one of the <1mW, red, "toys" that I sell for $2 at gem shows. I wrote the seller. His response was "try new batteries". I own several greenies. That statement didn't make much sense to me so I decided to do some research before I "got tough" with him. I am so glad I did. The discussions in this forum about the blurays and how they react to the surface that they hit kept me from making a complete fool of myself.
I have got to figure out how to take pictures of this thing. You should see what it does when I shine it at my geodes and the rest of my mineral collection
The seller ended up with positive feedback and I kept what little dignity I have intact. As a result of finding the forum, I also now have a Milos bluray and a BlueFusion bluray on the way so I can make comparisons and have the most toys when I die so I can "win"! ;D
