Hey all -

Just figured I would take a moment and do things right and introduce myself before I start making a fool of myself.

While not entirely new to lasers, my recent burst of excitement takes things in a new direction. Up until a few weeks ago I didn't realize that there were handheld, battery powered lasers commercially available that can so easily burn things. One thing lead to another and lo and behold I've come to see that the best place for knowledge, guidance and value is in a forum like this and not go to the companies that only care about the $$.

That said, for now I'm probably mostly looking to buy something prebuilt and experiment. I'm big into photography, and I have some art projects and ideas for making use of lasers that could be exciting. Of course anything I make I'll share with the community.

Well, that's it for now, sure I'll see you all around.

Welcome! where from the bay area are you from btw? this is a great place to learn about the immense variety of lasers out there, both hand held and lab type. And btw, i'm all about photography as well :)

Thanks for the welcomes. I'd like to think I'm being pretty diligent in doing my homework, I know how frustrating it can be to answer the same questions over and over again just because people don't like having to look themselves...but regardless thanks for condensing all the newbie info in one place. And dont worry, it barely took me any time around here to find out that people are generally less than pleased with Wicked Lasers.

I'm currently in Alameda, originally from Baltimore. So far the Bay Area seems like a great place for pretty much anything that doesnt require snow!

Ah so your on the other side of the bay! i'm in the peninsula, but you'll find that the bay area has a variety of "character" depending on where you decide to go and check out. Weather is very nice (much like it was today) and the winters will be nothing compared to what your accustomed to in baltimore. Though you'll be hearing people complain about the cold when it's in the high 40's and 50's :)

Thanks,

Looks like a solid group around here. Good to know there are people nearby once I get some projects going.
