Thanks Jedi....well I need to come clean about it.....it is outputting over 95mW as it is supremely bright (very uncomfertable to look at without Goggles) BUT its collimation is not good 2.0mRad.
When I adjusted the collimating plate inside the laser, I focused it to a fine beam approx 6 inches in front of apperture. At this point the Nexus will BURN absolutly anything :D. I can now turn this plate anytime I want to either use it as normal, star pointing etc or for burning experiments....ie what you seen in the vids.

And thanks you sprtdude91 - As you read above, gives away my secret of makeing my Nexus a real badass.

Is it a pulsar (red) laser you are getting....if so it will not burn wood as the beam is too wide. Infact, it might struggle to light a match, you need to focus it with a lens. Even a green laser needs to have a really tight beam with excellent collimation, well below 1.2mRad before it starts to burn wood, so dont build your hopes up. I think you really need to be in the 200mW+ power to have a chance to even start burning wood with a laser with collimation around 1.2 to 1.5mRad.

I don't know maybe someone like Athoul or pseudo can verify what I said as they have these higher powered units.

yea ur prolly right that it wouldn't burn wood right from wicked, but my Pulsar 150mw got fixed up by pseudo, improved conductivity, focusable, and widened aperture! I've popped balloons at over 26ft and lit a match at over 7ft and it even burns wood!! I've already engraved my name on a few of our wooden items around the house...lol. it's initial burst is around 180mw, then stable around 165mw, and once focused down on something, it doens't stand a chance :), i'll upload some vid's once my camera gets fixed! I'm very pleased with it's performace, the only thing is that it has to be dark for it to work, but that's a small price to pay.
