Thanks for clearing that up...Just to clear up confusion: The <5mW green laser is broken and has been replaced by a 450nm (blue) laser.
Link for the laser: https://www.ebay.com/itm/450nm-1W-Blue-Beam-Light-Laser-Pointer-Lazer-Powerful-Military-Pen-with-Glasse-/162317323441?hash=item25caddccb1:g:HTsAAOSwsTxXiEhV&_trkparms=pageci%3A14fadc61-a1d5-11e7-97e1-74dbd180bdcb%7Cparentrq%3Ab8659e2c15e0a9cb1bed4db9fff328d5%7Ciid%3A1
In terms of eye protection, I was going to order some color tinted acrylic and cut custom sized lenses on a CNC router for a pair of goggles I already own. I already have some red acrylic but if that doesn't work to my satisfaction I'll buy some specifically for this wavelength laser.
As for my Coach, he's been working with lasers for over 30 years, so I'm kind of doubtful that he would be misinformed on what wattage the laser functions at. Is there any chance he was referring to a different aspect of the laser?
I'm new to the forums, so I still don't quite how it all works, I'll do my best to supply more information on my profile.
As to Laser Safety Goggles/Glasses...
Get a good pair to protect the ONLY eyes
you will ever get....
