if you have a green laser you can do that, not a cheap red laser. But remember, utterly destroying it. It might last a second, or it could last a couple days.
where do you get green lasers? and how much?
i think radio-sh*t, and like 50$ each. buy a real co2 tube/laser diode assembly (something like 100$) and a psu. that a real burning laser that will last a while.
seeing as green laser are not that cheap, owning one for a few days only seems kinda wastful. plus, consider the environmental consequences.
you might see a performance gain by placing the laser assembly (its mirrors) in a tube filled with co2. but you really need a more powerful laser diode and new mirrors for a burning laser.
So there is a way!!! Can you tell me how?
you can't really without utterly destoying the laser
