It seems like my google-fu is not as sharp as it was or this is becoming a censored subject. I used to be able to find costume built lasers on google for sale but not today. I don't have the skills to build either. So who would you guys refer to? Looking for something that can be focused in at a pre-defined distance.

There are plenty of builders on here that may be able to come up with something for you. They'll need more details about what you'd like.

Please introduce yourself in the welcome section and add your location to your profile. :beer:

I'm not positive on wavelength or power. I know the end goal is to make something smoke a little from about 30-50 feet away.
I added location and introduced myself.

Hi now that’s better a Texan great . 30 to 50 ft away you will need a with a beam expander . Why so far away? Or other high power diodes.

HA. Yeah well it defiantly has a double meaning. But I don't live in CA anymore. Can the beam expander fit into a battery powered/handheld unit or would it be more realistic to have these features in a less portable solution. The distance is just preferred but not 100% necessary.

Yes, a beam expander can fit on to a hand held unit very easily!

HOLY ****......... Wow those are expensive. Who has experience building something in this range or where can you buy them pre-built?

Very cool! How long can you run it before needing to let it cool off?
