Hey, speaking of lasers, I have a large soft tissue laser in my garage. Totally forgot about it until last night when I tripped over it.
The label on the back says:
CLASS IV LASER
1060nm 200mJ 120us pulse
I have no idea if it actually works, though a person who should know says it does. I haven't tried turning it on -- no eye protection. It's got a couple of feet of fiber optic cable coming off the emitter; I was thinking of trying to tape the cable to Cory's CNC router head, to see if it'll burn something nifty into wood...
