But you know what, I give. You can almost certainly build a laser capable of doing everything you ask, I recommend red or violet, but beyond that, you'll have to look for yourself to find what kind of host will fit your super-duper-secret-doohicky. One member has built a laser cigarette light, in a Zippo I think, so you can look up his build to see how much power he used and such.pullbangdead... you really love the government don't you? Its a shame Americans have become so domesticated.
I don't even understand what you're talking about. You make it sound like the government just up and decided to start looking at every little thing you buy on the internet, and only block certain random things. That's simply not the case. Lasers have been regulated in exactly the same way for over 30 years, absolutely nothing has changed, it's not new, the government hasn't decided to micromanage anything. I'm certainly not domesticated, I like to think I have a healthy bit of rebellion in me, but I'm not going to get all huffy over a 30 year old law that, to be quite honest, makes perfect sense. But hey, what do I know?
So does everyone here base their egos on forbidden laser knowledge or what?
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not really here for ego, in general. I'm here because a lot of gracious people have helped me and taught me a lot of things about lasers, and I enjoy teaching those things to other people who want to learn. This place is a great tool and a great resource, and I guess the community here has just evolved over time to be a place for those who want to invest time and learn new things. It has definitely evolved away from a place for "OMGZORS, I'm leet so I neezor a leet burning lazor, can I potmod this lazor like the youtube video and start cutting things into pieces like a lightsaber?"
Do you guys ever get laid?
I'm married...so no, I don't.
Where did you order it from?Ok Ok...Calm down laser geeks. So I just ordered a 200mW laser that burns shit. Is that illegal?
LOL. To be completely honest, I'm procrastinating finishing off this stupid lab report.I dont even know why you guys waste your time talking to this kid...
Hey cujojunior.....Laserbee...Hahaha. Your such a bad ass. With all the effort you spent trying to belittle me on a laser pointer forum, you could have just answered my question like a kind person instead of being a little cunt.
