The first thing you need to do is to disassemble the burner CD-RW, DVD, or BLU-RAY drive. To make a cddrive laser is also possible, but have all the desired properties, he will not. In addition, it will not be visible, since the lasers of cd drives infrared radiation. Other home appliances laserof sufficient power s no.
Unscrew all the screws from the drive, then remove the top cover, locate and remove the diode. Since the construction of the actuators are different, examine the location in advance. The diode looks like a combined two small cylinders of different diameter. If you look at it sideways, it looks like schematically illustrates a hat. It has three contacts. To make the drive laser, you will need top – plus and average – minus. The bottom can be removed or folded. The efficiency of the diode test with two AA size batteries. The most important thing during the entire operation and further use the laserand not to Shine in eyes in any case. Otherwise, you can lose vision.
As the external packaging of the laserand the Chinese are great pointers. Disassembled it, put the diode from the drive. The only improvement you need is to connect the behest of two penlight batteries. Also as for the case, you can use a small flashlight and set his lasertion diode instead of a reflector. Such a laser can light matches, burn paper and leave marks on the plastic.
