did you use a driver for your laser?

i hope you didn't do a Kipkay mod where you direct drive the diode like a led?

If you're looking to build something simple, go to user DTR's laser shop. He sells plain diodes, diodes with drivers attached, diodes with drivers attached in a module and set in heatsink, or all the parts separately.

In your title, did you mean meth instead of math as in trimethyl borate in methanol solution that StyroPyro uses in his videos to get a green flame (it's his 'whoa' at the end that gets me every time)?



If it's the other meth, well then all I can say is ...

I would not have guessed that :thinking:. And now that I see it, it is the obvious choice (well except for a snarky response :na:). Hindsight 20/20 or better yet, good thing I wasn't a detective :whistle:.
