My name is Ivan Mendoza and I love lasers, they are fun and cool. My dad bought me my first laser and I that it was the greatest toy ever. Now that I'm old enough, I want to get back at it and build my own collection. I know I'm new here so if anyone can help me gain some positive rep and to build some trust and respect with the more experienced members it be great, thank you for letting me relive my childhood and I hope to pass it on to my kids, just like my dad did.

Welcome to the forum. Stay long enough and let people get to know you and you will get reps. Great place to learn about lasers, also how to build and where to buy completed or/and parts for your own builds. Grab some safety glasses first thing ( in the wave length you like to start off in, different wave lengths need different glasses ) be safe and enjoy and welcome . :)

Welcome to LPF, I'd start out with one of those 532nm (green) 301 lasers on eBay, those can be more impressive than you would think. You can get them for cheap, too.

I have a green one it's a 5mw green 532nm, we like it cause it's not too strong and my dog likes to chase it lol! Now I wanna get a little stronger laser but blue, I've seen some on youtube.

Welcome to the Forum Ivan.
There is a ton of information and tutorials on the Forum
but you will need to hunt it out.
Remember...the search bar is your friend.

As Alaskan said.... Reps are earned not given as gifts.
I'm sure you will earn reps with contributions on the
forum and time.

BTW your reps will only show under your Avatar after
you reach 50 posts. Until then your Reps will show [0]

Thank you lasersbee, yes I've been trying to figure out the search bar and I'm getting use to it lol! Ok, yea it's like respect, some ppl expect to be respected right off the back, but if your a stranger to a town where everyone knows each other and you just come in acting like your one of them, they wouldn't like it, probably get shot lol!
