At the time when LPF was created in the summer of '06 there were really no DIY lasers. The 16X red diodes (early 2007) and the first bluray diodes (late 2007) and the corresponding DIY videos about them that were posted on YouTube and linked back to LPF was really the point were the forum took off. Before that membership was quite scarce.

Who was the first to take a diode, driver, and all other parts to make their own laser? Or who was the first to introduce it to LPF?

The majority of the original red builds I saw were "kipkay style" driverless builds. I think deadal was one of the first to design a driver for the hobby.

I actually registered right when the forum started in the summer of 2006, my first account got lost though and since I wasn't that active until more recently I just started a new one.

It's funny. I didn't realize daedal was just some guy who built a DIY driver circuit... I thought he was somebody in a science book somewhere when I saw the "daedal" circuit on rog8811.com haha

I think Senkat is the oldest one still posting. Others drop in occasionally, even tommygreen23.

I think we caught him before he did anything. I could be wrong though. It was early last year.
