most likely under 15minutes a month.

I mostly use them on week end on my way to work or to scare goose.

Quite a few.. I actually light my shop with them sometimes, I point a red, green and blue laser at a single spot on the ceiling (I know, total laser geek).. I've got a few lower-powered lab modules that I bought to kill, so they're the ones I run a lot.

Surprisingly not much at all. I have the most fun planing, building, and even buying lasers and parts, then I do playing with them.

Not as much as I should considering the Price tag on some of them. I suppose between 30min to 1 Hr of on time a week. I wasn't sure where to vote since that category was hiding from me. I put 1-2Hrs.

Maybe its just me but having my scanner and always upgrading it from a phr to a ggw and now here comes my 445nm laser, i seem to use them for more than 30min a day.
Even more now that the new lasers come i think i will have to replace my 50-75mw of green.
those beams above my head make my day.

You sound a lot like me as I enjoy planning and building just as much if not more than using them. I do love to use them though :) ESP the WFTM now on that I have 10's of hours of use in just a couple months.

OMG it's 11:11!

Anyway, 2+ hours, I'll literally just pic one up (my dead red lol) and shine it for a few seconds to a minute, then put it down and go back to whatever I was doing. It WILL be 2+ hours in a few hours once I have a working laser again. Right now it's dead, but when it was working.....lol 5 hours a week.

EDIT: No it's not, 11:11 is the last time I last visited lol.

I usually have a multi-hour burn once a week with my Viasho.

I average maybe 20 minutes a week. But I spent 8 hours one day (while designing a show)

Totally depends. There might be a week where I don't even mess with any lasers and some days spend hours if I have a project. Just a few days ago I spent 5 hours with lasers when making my latest video because I had trouble keeping the right amount of fog and taking the best clips.

It is RARE that i don't have one of my lasers on me.
I would guess i use them about 15-20 mins a day.

I don't know, but maybe 15 minutes?

I use to play with them when I have gone to sleep and it's dark. And sometimes I use them to burn flies... :yh: But it's not so fun in daylight.

I usually use mine about 30 min or more a day, that's how my dog gets her exercise!
