Hello everyone! My name is Dan, I'm a 19 year old business student from northern Ohio. I dabble in many many different things. I'm into film making, a Semi-Professional photographer, music production, and a bit of an Audiophile. Recently my buddy has shown me a few of his Lasers, a couple 5mw. I loved them, I thought they were really cool and decided I wanted to start getting into them! I went online and did what everyone does and bought one of the cheap "ebay" lasers, the ones that all come in the exact same pen host. It's a "5mw" 532nm. I'm really annoyed with it's performance, and it is very weak. I really like the beams. I don't know to much about building lasers but I am always open to learn! I learn very well from videos and learn incredibly quick. I'll be on quite often as a lot of my work is on the computer, so I'll be open often. Feel free to message me for more, I'm glad I've stumbled on such an awesome helpful forum!
