Here is the biggest and baddest laser I've ever built!!! This laser is so powerful that I cannot even measure it on my meter, but it's power is likely near 6W. This laser incinerates anything in its path!!!
This laser is DOUBLE the power of the one in my "Homemade Lightsaber" video!
I had the sword host custom machined by a talented machinist (who goes by Ehgemus on the forums), and I got the laser diode here: https://sites.google.com/si...
For the drivers I stacked two V7 X-Drives in parallel to get 4.0A.
ALWAYS use laser goggles when working with lasers over 5mW! http://www.survivallaserusa...
