How to Make a Weapons Grade Laser ( Class IV 2000mW Laser Tutorial - PLTB450B ). I built a powerful, burning laser!
In this video I show how to make a laser driver PCB to power a laser diode.

I've been working on this laser for weeks, but couldn't find the time to complete it.
This is an approximately 2000mW 450nm laser that I built from scratch into my own aluminium housing. Wavelength: 445 - 450 nm ( Blue )
Laser Diode: Osram PLTB450B
Voltage & Current Regulator Chip: LM317
For higher power use LM338
Parts can be bought online, some parts at jaycar and radioshack etc.
To build your own laser driver, use:
PLEASE USE SAFETY GOGGLES WITH HIGH-POWERED LASERS!
Do not shine lasers at planes, cars or people!
