Building a 2 Watt Laser Diode Cutter Part 1

In this episode we will look at Part 1 for our 2 Watt laser diode based cutting head project we sourced from  In the next episode we will start the assembly of the diode (which is static sensitive) into the brass TO housing and solder power wires to it.  After that we will connect the laser driver and power up the laser.

Note:  This is a dangerous project  as at 2 Watts, this laser can do a lot of damage and even if you know what your doing this can be dangerous!
