Well if it has a way to focus it, point it at the object you wish to burn, and focus it to the smallest dot possible.

Also, please make sure to read up laser safety if you haven't already.

Can't burn with anything less than ~70mw really. 5mw isn't going to do squat, any color.

I guess he talks about pot mod .. which generally does not work. So yeah, get different laser. Something like 200mW red .. they are dead cheap these days.

Don't try to potmode this laser or any laser. You'll probably ruin it.
