    Laser Warning Now for something completely different

    Well at first I was really sad at the death of my first lightsaber... Before it died, I noticed the power going down... so after realining it, it came up at 231mw... but then it started going down again, then nothing... So after opening it up I found out why.. the crystal had broke in half..... but the pump was still working So after messing with it I found that I could make a mean burner out of it it pumps form 1.2-1.5watts at 808, burns great!!
    But then I was like well this is nice but what eles can I do with it... So after pulling the OEM 10mw B&W apart,(it never worked right) and 2 days of alinment, I now have a 4mw 473 I think if I get another crystal set I can get more out of it. It needs 2 watts of IR to do the 10mw..
    I still think its cool!!!

    Nice! That's what it's all about.. you learn more from hands on experimentation like that than you do any other way really..
