@jstodberg About $500: https://jtechphotonics.com/?product=3-8w-laser-and-2-5amp-safety-compliant-driver-kit Plus the cost of building an enclosure for the device (for exhaust and safety). :) @clarkgoble @cgiffard
@_chrismay Keep developing it. The difference between a successful idea and a failed idea is usually more to do with somebody giving up than anything else. And if you can use it for work, that gives you an excuse to spend some day job time on it too. :)
@johngordon And of course this puts into sharper focus Donald Trump's possible admission last night that he pays no taxes. He is unfit to lead for so many reasons. But now we see that he is also an unpatriotic leech on society.
@johngordon Jim Himes is now my hero as well. Taxation is a shared burden we all shoulder in order to sustain our society. It is the source of peace and order. No good or heroic deed exempts you from this basic obligation. We all benefit and we all pay.
