Building a 1W laser

Post by Muffinman » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:02 pm

Hi Folks,

As per my introduction in the introduce yourself thread, I'm a keen but green amateur that would like to build a 1W (or higher, depending on cost) laser. I've seen plans for a a 1W laser diodes and L317 driver, but is this the way to go? Can anyone give me any advice on a first, cheap hobby project?
