So I have 20 bucks and I just can't wait to get a burning laser, I have until the end of this month to spend it. I need to order a 20buck burning laser pointer. I don't care when it comes, or where it's from, any thoughts on this

New Special Cute Burning 50mW green laser torch/focusable/ [OL-CG-50] - $16.90 : Zen Cart!, The Art of E-commerce

Any other advice or links or input is much appreciated

Ok first off that is a 50mW laser it will be the same power as the "50mw green pointer pen" in your signature.

If you want to do burning You MUST buy goggles FIRST and have a good understanding of laser safety.

as far as your budget you wont get much for $20 I would save up and wait until you have at least $50.

Safety glasses are 100% needed for burning and they cost $45 shipped from survival laser. The uvex glasses dont work anymore due to a formula change so you need to save atleast $100 or you will spend THOUSANDS in medical bills due to being blind in about 10 seconds of use

if you literally have 20$, then you literally won't get a burning laser.

Or you can pour some gasoline on a laser you already have, lit it on fire, and you have a burning laser for under 20$...


Seriously, this ain't a cheap hobby...

The pair of Uvex I reviewed seem to work great for my 300mW. No light gets through them, and the beam becomes 100% invisible. The dot becomes extremely small, and looks like a needle point.

However, I VERY highly doubt they'll protect against IR. So definitely not for use if your laser isn't IR filtered. :beer:

Another one of these threads :crackup:

My advice is always the same. Save your pennies and get a decent laser.

He did say he wants a burning laser.

He didn't say whether he wanted to burn things with this laser or for the laser to burn.

So the video would be cheapest. Still need glasses though.
