where can i get a focusing lens for my 1000mW burning laser? Answered
i just bought this laser diode
but when i first used it, with me not knowing that it didnt come with a lense to allow it to burn things from a distance less that 1 mm.
i was unable to use it properly, due to it not having a focusing lens, instead nwhat i get is a spray of light in a large rectangle sort of shape.
so now im stuck with the dilema, where can i get a focusing lens for it so it makes a dot like any normal laser, WITHOUT using the laser flashlight hack, as i dont want to spend that much money, i just want to buy a lens, or ripp one form a dvd player , and thats it done, i can use the laser to light viscus fuse from at least 20m
please help me, and whoever gives me a best answer without mentioning a thing about lasers being dangerous and stuff like that, i promise will get a best answer.
also i will flagg any answers that are intentionally not answering my questions and say, as i statyed above, "this is dangerous, you could poke your eye out with viscus fuse" . and " lasers are dangerous dont use them". or other pointless warnings i have already read on line.
i have bought infrared laser safety goggles that came with my laser diode that are strong enough to withstand being directly shon at in the eyes with the 1 wat laser and not see a thing, or so ive heard, im not taking that chance.
just to be clear i know what kind of lens i need, i just dont know WHAT lens i need
