I'm looking for a burning LASER.
Something I can light tinder / matches / candles with.
Are they sold on Amazon? (I only ask because I happen to need one for very particular reason, but a relative gave me an Amazon gift certificate).
wicked lasers stopped shipping to the US because they got bought out and the new owners got cold feet. Biglasers.com still sells them though. when last I looked they had the higher-power ones in a variety of colors. You want at least 150mw to start fires, more if you can afford it. Expect to pay a few hundred bucks.
well, a fork can easily be an extremely dangerous device.
granted, it's easier to 'inadvertently' cause damage, or do so without anyone noticing you're the culprit when you have something like a laser that can project the mechanism of action.

you don't know what those words mean
Obviously you've never done it before, the actual laser diode is very small and is amongst a bunch of glass and perspex prisms to focus and catch the light, secondly you need to get a new circuit board to deliver the power to the laser diode and solder that together and thirdly you need another prism to focus the light into a beam instead of the scattering that it'll currently be doing without a focusing lens.
