Hey, I am Clint and made a profile a month ago. Since I have been coming here atleast once a day lately, I figured, "Why not state my my business." I am from Alabama, 33 years old and work for Mazda Toyota Manufacturing, a joint operation. Currently I am training at a Toyota plant in Mississippi. I have been in management for the last 10 years. I have been interested in lasers since I was probably 10. My first laser was from a gas station- a red laser that used watch batteries. I loved it but it did not last long. Next I bought a laser from a gas station, also red, that came with 50 tips that each made a different pattern- stars, circles, birds, cats, shooting stars, ect. I had a fascination with it. When I was 13 ebay was getting big, and I started buying alot of lasers there. Around that time I discovered I could make my own laser, and I researched and got everything together, except the diode. I bought it online after begging my dad for his card, and I waited and waited but it never came in and there ended my laser building hobby...Until a couple months ago. I was building a flashlight when I thought about building a laser. So I did some research and contacted Jayrob. He built me a host, got a diode from DTR, and now for the last month I have been enjoying my beautiful blue laser. Sadly one is not enough for me and I want to build more. So I've been here during breaks at work and while my wife is not at home researching my next diode purchase. Anyway, just wanted to post for those that see me pop up in their conversation thread.
