I'm looking for that laser frequency that uses the miniscule water vapor on everyday
objects to burn holes in hard materials.

Anyone ?

Not enough wattage in ether one you need 35 watts and up for wood burning at any speed laser pointers and DVDs are under 10 watts.

What are you looking to burn. The diode from the DVD burner can be used to burn paper but that's about it.
