Cheapy Lighter Laser Burner

Featured

Step 8: Final Assembly

Cut the original red button in half leaving just the two small tabs that are secured in the housing holes.
You will have to play around with the exact height of the switch in relation to to the red button. Re attach the flame shield. After I shot the video I found a small rubber stopper and cut it in half, then pushed it inside the base of the lighter to make sure the driver and batteries stayed put. .

Your Cheapy Laser Lighter Burner is complete!

Use responsibly! Lasers of all types should never be pointed at your self or any living thing. This kind of laser can cause permanent damage to eyesight in less than a second. NEVER look into the beam or reflection of ANY laser including this one.

I hope you enjoyed this Instructable!

Did you focus the diode? Is that a blu-ray laser diode? Where did you get the driver from? What was the total cost?

I wouldn't exactly call 75 dollars of laser parts cheap... but I guess that's just me, shame cos I really like this build... I just don't have that kind of money to spend.
go to hightechdealz.com the have a blueray laserburner diode for about $18. you can get the little driver from a $3 5mw red lase diode that comes in its housing on the site to.
the laser isnt cheap... the lighter is. hes making somthing expensive look cheap at first glance hence "cheapy" instead of "cheap"
Ahhh. My apologies then. Diffrence between cheapy and cheap was lost in translation. English isn't my native tongue. Cheers for clearing that up!
no problem, your not the only one. its pretty damn easy to confuse even if english is your native tongue.

thats a waste of butane. and its a danger to let it out like that. open the valve outside when its almost empty.

Try using overstock sellers or eBay for parts. It will be no more than $40 - $50 if you find good deals.
