I’m almost too embarrassed to admit it but I just got bit by my laser for the third time in about 3 weeks. I got careless and test fired the laser onto my finger. Lol. I’ve always worn glasses but I have a bad habit of test firing the laser onto the wood to help with placement. The first time I was at 10% power on the unfocused beam and I just felt a slight twinge on the back of my hand. The second time it never touched skin but did burn a a hole in my long sleeve t-shirt. And most recently I test fired the laser right after placing the head in the correct location. This time unfortunately at 18% power. It burned my skin and is still stinging. I think this one has taught me a lesson. I can only imagine how much damage this thing would do if it was after the lens.
Yes I’m an idiot but I’ve learned some valuable lessons.
Has anyone else gotten zapped by their laser?
