Dewalt Jtech laser mount

First off don’t mind my ramblings it was another late night build after a 12 hour work day. I finally got in the mood to make a proper mount for my laser. I wanted a one piece unit with simple installation and removal with as little wiring as possible. Here are the pics and the video is coming soon. This is my budget cheap skate build. cost 0 time who knows I am a scatter brain. I’m the guy that looks an hour for the roll of electrical tape that he has had in his hand the whole time. http://easel.inventables.com/projects/ITV2oEe_iEB7aIOS67p0Cg

Hmmm sounds like so good fun, aside from the burnt finger. :open_mouth:

I know you didn’t ask but i will tell. I was setting up the laser trying to focus it and did not realize the material I was using as a target was laminated with foil well the laser burnt through hit foil reflected back and burnt my finger
