I didn’t know you had three watts if green, what is it?
And now, if you had the pic, you could create a meme with like-a-sir face holding your laser next to the monitor burnt. :crackup: Awesome "burn".I sadly don't have a photo of it, but years ago I was burning things at my desk, and I slipped and ended up putting a 2 inch long burn in a 600$ LCD monitor. Felt like an absolute moron.
Yeah. It is much more important to learn from errors. You cannot exclude them completely (that would be error). You have to be aware you can make error at any time with laser (it keeps my respect when using lasers). You can just learn and reduce the risk as much as possible. That is how I develop my safety protocol. Not only theory, but practical experience and error learning is needed. Even if I do a small error with just potencial theoretical dangerous impacts, I analyze why it happened (e.g. Why was that laser activated and not covered aperture, where in the workflow safety is lacking?) and how to improve my safety procedures to prevent this.That's just scary the way people have accidents with these high power lasers. If it wasn't an inanimate object, it could have been an eye or some other part of your anatomy. I always make sure I am in complete control of a laser at all times when it is on, or could be activated. These things wouldn't happen if people put a little more thought into what they were doing.
Those are the most fun, lmao yeah I picture the wood cabinets and drawers having small burn marks on them lol!:crackup: :crackup: :crackup:
Sh!7 I thought I was the only one. There’s been a time or 100 I momentarily zapped a tiny inconspicuous spec of varnish of some wood.
Whoa! I didn’t even know those existed, I may have to look into that, keep my girl on my good side, thanks RedI have worked in some nice houses installing window treatments and blinds and stuff gets bumped/scratched/gouged not to mention screw cracks if you don't pre drill hardwoods and next to a box of crayons these are a lifesaver.
Holy hell! 3 watts of green!? Nice.This poor spray paint cap gave it's life after receiving a shot of 532nm @3W from about 40'.
Oh god! Yeah I couldn’t imagine how that felt, hahaThe best and THE MOST STUPID (now so funny) was my long toe nail (yeah it was that inanimate part of course) just before I cut it with scissors. :crackup: I once tried to cut it with my Arctic and focussing lens. Crazy idea. Do not try it (unless you train to apply for Darwin Award) - not only it is seriously stupid, but it burns as hell even if you just touch it with the beam. From my experience it lasted just a fraction of second (I did not even plan more anyway and I could not even sustain more). But there was a fine hole through and a lot of smell everywhere in the bathroom.
(Sorry no picture -that would be disgusting. )
Further various stuff, but no furniture or other home stuff... I like engraving little (almost invisible from one meter or more) signs with hand held portables. My WL EVO did a lot of little signs on various (mostly wooden) stuff (like dead tree branches or so).
Dang Blarg! Lol that must have burn inside. I did however accidentally burn a small line in my phone from my 405nm build a while back, I’m reminded every time I look at my phone lol!I sadly don't have a photo of it, but years ago I was burning things at my desk, and I slipped and ended up putting a 2 inch long burn in a 600$ LCD monitor.
