I just received a Coherent 808nm Laser Diode 3.5V 60-90Amp 50-60W:
Freaking awesome. High power cutting laser. I’ve always wanted one of these. This is powerful enough to cut just about anything except metal.
I’m going to turn this into a cutting head for the reprap.
You can see the electrical power connects, and the water cooling connectors.
This laser is dangerous:
THERE ARE NO “OOPS THAT WAS BRIGHT” SECOND CHANCES WITH THIS LASER! A single careless glance into the beam or it’s reflection WILL PERMANENTLY BLIND YOU FOREVER! To the eye the scattered output looks as bright as a red laser pointer, but that same “weak looking” beam will light a piece of cardboard on fire in about 1/4 of a second!
