New member and newly certified laser user Scott burned his bacon on the laser cutter tonight. Nice rasher graphic, Scott!
In showing this picture around, I discovered that the whole “Just because we can!” ethos doesn’t resonate equally with all members of my household.
Mark Edmonson recently donated a big box of pretty high quality used battery powered laser levels to us. They’re in various states, from apparently completely functional to rather dead.
Each one contains 5 diode lasers, as well as some other parts. There are fairly complete teardown notes and pictures here.
Here are the parts I salvaged from one.
