I like lasers and I always want to make one. But how can I make a easy laser that can burn little things?
I have a normal laser here, can I make from my normal laser a laser that can burn little things?

I hope anyone here can help me! I'm dreaming of a own laser that can burn little things. ::)

I'm Dutch, sorry for my bad English.

Yes. This, however, is the only known way. Styropyro, kind as he is, has compiled this into video format for everyone who asks this question.

Ok thanks, but can I use a laser from a cd player from a pc? Or do I need a dvd burner?

A DVD burner is necessary for that mod.. a cd player uses an invisible laser that is very low power. Seriously, read the links that I posted earlier. All this info is there just waiting to be read.. We see these questions all the time and they have already been answered hundreds of times. It just gets a little old typing out the same answers over and over for every new person who asks.. That's why I forward people to some threads that answer these types of questions.

Many hundreds. I think I see this question pop up at least 5 times a week...
