I am planning on making my first DIY laser and i have all the parts ready to make the driver but i don't know where to get a laser diode. I was going to get a used DVD burner from ebay but i wondered if there is anywhere else i could get a diode.

Have you tried "OdicForce" yet? Don't forget safety glasses/goggles!

I've never bothered with buying from the UK, most of my lasers come from the US (DTR usually :p) or China. But Odiforce seems to be a good option. Usually the prices are better outside the UK, but the 1W 520 has caught my eye for not a bad price.. :whistle:
